An accurately calibrated and profiled display is critical to Color Perfectionists. Designed with this mind, along with an easy, wizard-driven interface, the X-Rite ColorMunki Display color management device gets you to a brilliantly calibrated display or protector in minutes, allowing you to quickly return to what you love doing. What you see on your monitor (or projector) represents your digital file the way it was intended to be. Two user modes (Basic and Advanced) provide serious Color Perfectionists with the perfect combination of unrivaled color precision, speed, options and controls to fit any workflow.

  • newegg State of the Art Instrument The X-Rite ColorMunki Display delivers blazing fast measurement speed, allowing you to spend more time focusing on what you do best. Custom designed RGB filter set provides accurate color measurements. New optical design allows for high repeatability on the same display and across different display types for more consistent color matching.
  • newegg Ease of Use Intuitive all-in-one design and is very easy to use, and the compact and self-contained construction enable maximum portability. Rotatable diffuser arm can be used as a stand for table top projector profiling, ambient light measurement, and as a cover for instrument optics. Conveniently integrated tripod mount for projector profiling in larger venues.
  • newegg X-Rite ColorMunki Software ColorMunki software provides two user modes, “Easy” and ”Advanced”, both designed to give high-level professional color results for your displays and projectors. The wizard driven interface guides you through the profiling process in small, easy to understand steps. No knowledge of color science is required. “Easy” mode is as simple as pushing a button, while “Advanced” mode provides additional predefined options for those users who want more defined color control.
  • newegg Ambient Light Measurement & Ambient Light Smart Control Ambient Light Measurement automatically determine the optimum display luminance for comparing prints to your display, based on a measurement of the lighting conditions where prints will be viewed. The intensity or amount of ambient light surrounding your workspace affects the way you perceive colors on your display. With Ambient Light Smart Control technology, ColorMunki Display can compensate for this effect and provide the option to automatically adjust your profile or simply notify you as ambient light conditions change.
  • newegg Flare Correct Flare Correct measures and adjusts your display profile for reduced contrast ratios caused by flare light (or glare) falling on surface of display. By accurately measuring your effective display contrast ratio, you’ll have an even more accurate display profile.
  • newegg Projector Profiling The X-Rite ColorMunki Display Display Pro helps you quickly and accurately create projector profiles to show your images on the big screen with color confidence. Intelligent adaptive profiling technology enables maximum color accuracy from each unique projector.

1 out of 5 eggsDecent hardware, false advertising, no support

Pros: The hardware works, and can profile a narrow set of display technologies. (8 bit per channel IPS panels with either white or RGB LED backlights whose brightnesses are adjusted through constant current drivers (and not PWM)

Cons: The company no longer supports this device, or any of their other ones. This means that no support for additional display technologies will be added. The problem with this is most display technologies used today, will not work with it (hence, the many negative reviews).

They advertise LCD support but do not mention the type (due to them not adding colorimeter correction data for more display types). For example, it has almost no support for TN LCD panels, No support for PWM controlled LED backlights (constant current control backlights only), no support for LED's that are not exactly 6500K (software will try to compensate for the backlight and leave you with a washed out image with horrible contrast ratio, color depth, and very little dynamic range).

These issues can be fixed relatively easily if the company would continue to support their product with new correction data, but it seems that they only release new hardware every few years, but drop support for released products in less than a year (in terms of bug fixes)

Overall, the only displays where this device will work well on, are $400-800+ IPS displays which will use top quality LED's which are constant current controlled, and panel tech along the lines of P-IPS (displays which have likely been precalibrated individually at the factory.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this unless you can somehow borrow one first to see if it will even work on your displays. And do not hold your breath on waiting for this company to add support for whatever display technology your laptop, or desktop LCD display may be using.

Sadly this is an issue with many companies like this with products focused on the consumer level. Spyder is a little better, but still suffers from some compatibility issues that the company has no interest in fixing. The only products which still get proper support, are the top of the line spectrometers in the $2000+ range.

For the rest of us who do not make a living, calibrating displays, we are stuck with finding a display known to work well with the consumer level display calibrators, or be disappointed when a $170 purchase gets you horrible results.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated software helps - but there are better choices

Pros: - Decent hardware.
- Software is still clunky to use, but not nearly as bad as it used to be.
- Memory leak gone.
- Tech support did respond.

Cons: - Software is still really not that good. It works. It's better than it used to be, but it could use a lot of improvement.
- Can be difficult to get the puck to attach properly to the screen.

Other Thoughts: I really wish my old Huey Pro hadn't died. That just worked great. Also, I will be taking another reviewer's advice and trying out the open source offerings.

I would no longer recommend completely avoiding this product, but for this price you can do better.

4 out of 5 eggsNice hardware, poor software

Pros: I have owned the ColorMunki Display for a couple of years now, and have used it to successfully calibrate many monitors, and even an LCD television. The hardware on it is nearly identical to the more expensive i1 Display Pro, but it is a little slower. I'm a huge fan of this little device!

Cons: I completely agree with the other reviewers, that the software for this thing is terrible! But you can download some good open source programs instead (see below).

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and download a few open source programs: ArgyllCMS and dispcalGUI. The dispcalGUI program uses ArgyllCMS to perform the calibrations... it doesn't have memory leaks, and works pretty well. Another program that uses ArgyllCMS is HCFR. It can be used with a DVD/Bluray calibration disk to manually calibrate a TV.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not recommend with Mac

Pros: It seemed easy enough to use, but the results were far from accurate.

Cons: Got this at the recommendation of a print lab as when they were hired to do some editing blamed my monitor calibration when the images came back off color big time. Well, it wasn't my monitor after having a couple labs do a print untouched - one of my edit with old settings and one using their calibration from ColorMunki - the screen was yellow, the prints were yellow, not anywhere near correct from using this device. Now the thing opens up every time I start the computer with no way to get rid of that I can find, the only suggestions online do not work so every time I start the computer I get warnings how it needs to be updated. If using a mac would not recommend this thing, waste of time and money.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my review - AVOID THIS PRODUCT

Pros: Hardware does its job, I guess, but it's hampered by awful software.

Cons: Software has massive memory leaks. After having my computer on for a few days, I noticed the Tray software was using 1.1GB(!!!) of memory. I restarted it and it was initially at around 10MB. After less than an hour, it's up to 50MB.

The software hasn't been updated in 15 months, so that's not looking good. It's shocking that it hasn't been updated given the severity of this bug.

I will be contacting x-rite customer support to see what they will do. Hopefully, the let me return this and get something better.

Other Thoughts: I'm downgrading my review to one star because the software makes the hardware basically unusable. No updates with this kind of bug is inexcusable.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing software, clunky and blinky

Pros: It does calibrate monitors, and my two very different monitors look the same now. Software is simple to use. Seems accurate.

Cons: This thing has a really annoying light that slowly blinks all the time. It's distracting to keep on your desk. I have to hide it behind my monitors while working. I'm considering some electrical tape to cover the light.

The software is clunky and sometimes the profile doesn't "kick in" for several minutes, or not at all, requiring manual intervention.

The design of the device is a bit cumbersome, requiring a bit of fiddling to get it to properly attach to the monitor during calibration.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Huey Pro that met an unfortunate and untimely death due to a defective USB hub. I liked the Huey hardware and software, but dislike the ColorMunki. For the price charged, this device should be better thought out.
