    You can pick up an x-rite eye one, or the new X-Rite EODIS3 i1Display Pro. They both come with software.

    Eizo ColorEdge displays are pretty easy to calibrate - all you need is some piece of hardware (i1pro, display, colormunki etc.) and software comes with the display so you don't need to bother.

    OK, you want to bay asus monitor
    And you have i1 spectrometer
    So go to xripe website and download i1Profiler, and it will work, or if its too old download iMatch.

    With Nec i use SpectraView 2 with i1 - fully automatic, great result.

    With other monitors i've tried to use Argyll CMS with dispcalGUI - perfect result if you know what you're doing ;)

    In our company, the Eye-One is used.
    Operate with the included software is very easy.

    generally the bundled software will be the only package that is able to access the built in LUTs of any given monitor (ColorNavigator for Eizos, Spectraview II for NECs, etc.) ColorNavigator is free for eizo owners, spectraview costs extra for NECs, but both do a fantastic job. The only exception to this rule I know of is in the case of ColorEyes display pro, which can also access the Eizo built in LUTs.

    using any other profiling package with a hardware calibrate-able monitor will give an inferior result, as it will alter the RGB curves of your graphics card.

    However, if you don't have a monitor with built in LUTs the Lacie Blue Eye pro software works well, and argyll CMS with DispCAL GUI is pretty great too

    to make sure you get the best result in any program, make sure you use the largest amount of test patches possible (usually in prefs) and make sure you have the calibration target set for greyscale instead of contrast (unless, of course, contrast is your priority, but for prepress it shouldn't be)

    luminance should be set somewhere around 120-160 depending on the brightness of your room, and D65 should generally be your color target-- using D50 with an LCD monitor is a great way to trick your eyes into making everything a lot cooler than it should be (really, just use D65, it doesnt matter what part of the world you are in, it will just look more "correct," and hence your adjustments will be more accurate) the differences between perception of reflected vs transmissive light sources is more than needs to be gone into here....
