    Hi,

    I have a SpyderX and a IPS Black monitor with LM270WR9-SSA1 panel (not from Dell).

    As some users here said SpyderX is a useless junk for KFS WLED panels because it cannot use distributed corrections.

    My question is, will I be better off calibrating using included WLED setting, or not calibrating at all by relying on manufacturer’s <2 deltaE (though I doubt they really calibrated each individual monitor)?

    Thanks

    SpyderX shoul habe a built in mode for LED widegamut displays. WLED means LED sRGB monitor hence all P3/AdobeRGB monitors cannot be”WLED”. Thay may be WLED PFS phosphor whcih is a totally different backlight type.
    I do not remember all the list modes in SpyderX, write them here and we can tell you the one that “should” be closer.

    (in SpyderX due to irts desing closer to i1d3 HW error will be in WP, and that could be tunned visually. Device should be able to calibrate greyscakle to that white. Just don’t make LUT3D absolute colorimetric).

    Thank you Vincent.

    There are only four modes:

    1. Generic

    2. LCD White LED

    3. LCD PFS Phosphor WLED, RGB LED

    4. LCD GB-r-LED

    I know my old U2413 AdobeRGB monitor is GB-r-LED, don’t really know what to use for KFS LED (this one is 98% P3).

    I understand for perfect KFS calibration I will need something like CA310, CA410 colour analyser, preferably with a spectroradiometer to calibrate analyser too, but I’m not prepared to send this cheap KFS secondary monitor for perfect calibration every few month, just wondering whether SpyderX can give me something that is better than nothing…

    3rd one for any modern widegamut monitor. Then visual correct white if it does not look white and use relative colorimetric for making LUT3D,
