Calibration with the Spyder2 was pretty easy, you had to install their software then attach the colorimeter and it did most of the work. You had to click a few buttons during the process to confirm stuff.
I am not yet 100% it was a good calibration, given that I think my brightness is out of whack. I borrowed it from a friend to do the calibration, so didn't get a lot of time to play around with it.....
Hmm, calibrated NEC PA271W shows 4 circles. And I've spent much time trying to get the print/screen match right (now pretty close). Use a Colormunki which I'm happy with although before I had this NEC I was using an old Mitsubishi 17inch which was good but was still showing much lighter than print. I tested the Colormunki with a set of color swatches and I was surprised how close to the real colours it was, so that wasn't the issue. Currently monitor is calibrated to 5500K, 110 cd/m2, and a contrast ratio of 500:1.
Stupidity is a condition, ignorance is a choice, don't make it...
