What is CM?
Just so we are all on the same page, CM usually stands for Color Management.
You might want to adjust to C-Munki for Color Munki.

... What is CM? Just wonder.

It's either Color Management or ColorMunki.

I am now waiting for DELL to put 2209WA monitor on sale. In the meantime I have noticed that NEC is selling refurbished LCD2690WUXi-2 for a very attractive price ($749 USD). I have read reviews and they are very good.

That NEC is an incredibly good monitor.  Many steps beyond the Dell.

I do not do professional photography, but I would like to have a monitor I can trust in terms of colour reproduction. Should be good for wrokign with text too though.

I'm not a pro photographer either, but I edit real estate photos for a magazine and color accuracy is important.  Text rendering is also important as I create advertising materials for print.

Hello again,

I have got DELL 2209 WA. I have tried to calibrate it a few of times with EyeOne 2. First impression is good as the calibration is much easier than of Dell U2410. I will post my results later. However, it takes the monitor about 30 min to come up with real colours (final) starting with very pink. Interesting that after calibration I have a pink tint on my monitor. It is noticeable when the monitor is just  turned on, and goes down with time. However, I believe I still can see it. May be I have a problem with my EyeOne 2 which is a bit more than a month old.

Does it have to take 30 min and more for an IPS panel to heat up? My old ViewSonic with TN panel is bright right after I turn it on. Is it a major difference between TN and IPS panels?

Please advise. Thank  you!

The advice I have heard - I think it's from the EyeOne 2 Display help - is to allow an hour for a monitor to stabilize. It may actually take less time but I prefer to be sure it's properly settled down. When due to calibrate, I turn off the screen saver and monitor auto-off and leave it for an hour.

PS. With the Imatch software you can do validation checks at intervals and look for changes in the Delta E values; that will give a clue as whether the monitor is stable or not.

Hello Terry,

Thank you very much for your advice. I will try it out per your recommendations. I just wonder if this happens to all good monitors (Eizo, LaCie, NEC) used for professional colour editing. It might only be related to cheap monitors like Dell, as they do not have as much electronics to boost the colour and brightness fast. It seems like wasting a lot of time to start working with pictures.

Regards,
Roma

I have an Eizo monitor and from checks I have done, it needs at least 30 mins to become stable. My old cheap one would need a full hour. I think it all depends on how much the electronics and illumination system are rated . I would expect better quality monitors to have components working well within their full capacity and use components that are inherently more stable.
