Why buy just a mon­i­tor cal­i­bra­tor when you could have a com­plete colour ac­cu­racy kit? Don’t go think­ing this’ll pro­file your printer as well though, as the kit is ac­tu­ally just a ColorMunki Dis­play col­orime­ter bun­dled with Ko­dak’s Color Man­age­ment Check-Up Kit.

Given that the ColorMunki Dis­play will au­to­mat­i­cally set your mon­i­tor’s colour out­put and bright­ness with more ac­cu­racy than the hu­man eye can achieve, you have to won­der why the vis­ual Check-Up Kit is in­cluded at all.

At least you do get a col­lapsi­ble, dou­ble-sided grey and white card to aid with ac­cu­rate colour cap­ture, but you still be bet­ter off buy­ing the ColorMunki Dis­play and a grey card separately. Cal­i­bra­tion time: 5 min­utes 5 sec­onds Colour ac­cu­racy af­ter cal­i­bra­tion (Delta-E, lower scores bet­ter): 0.69

There’s plenty of kit in the box, but ul­ti­mately the col­orime­ter is all you re­ally need – the rest is re­dun­dant
