    Has anyone used this I have seen the posts for the monitor calibration are positive. just wondering if anyone has used it to calibrate there printer? Is it worth the extra money?

  2. Unfortunately, no. Having the ability to generate printer profiles like this is what makes the new Z series designjets so appealing, though.
     
  3. I just bought one also. I thought the printer profiler was insufficient for getting a "great" profile, using only 20-30 colors, so I opted to take advantage of the coupon in the box and picked up the RGB extension...

    On the first attempt I printed the single test chart on 13x19 paper, but then struggled with the calibrartion since it did not fit into the "reader tray".

    On thing I did notice, when I blew selecting the correct row and column the software did advise me that row-x,col-y needed another reading and when the errors were repaired, it went off and built a profile.

    I tried the profile using the same paper against that from EPSON printing the identical photo from CS2 and "MY" profile produced a much darker image.

    In the kit, there is the calibration stand with a small opaque white indow. the question I need answered is to I point the white window towards the room's lighting source or just leave it on the desktop (in which case, why is it white and semi-transparent?
