The new i1 Display is an improvement over the previous i1 Display 2 which I also own. However, I'm not certain there is enough improvement here to warrant replacing the older unit.
1) The new i1 Pro is much better suited for measuring a projector screen, in that it is equipped with a lens that allows you to point at the screen, and not have to be placed on the screen itself. It also has a tripod screw mount, to easily mount on a stand for aiming at the projector screen.
2) The new i1 Pro is MUCH faster. I assume this is because the lens focuses more light (and also averages a greater area) to allow for faster readings and reduced noise. This is particularly noticeable when reading very dark test swatches.
3) The ambient light cover is now integrated, and the sensor knows if it is in place or not.
4) The ambient light translucent disk is recessed, which allows you to position it to read *only* ambient and not direct light (i.e. you can easily position it to read only the light hitting the screen).
5) The counter weight is now firmly attached to the USB cord (no more lost weights).
6) It has settings for various LCD types, including wide gamut and LED screens, and (as mentioned) projectors.
1) The bundled software is useless (see below).
2) Other than speed, there was no noticeable improvement in monitor matching with my wide-gamut displays vs my older i1 Display 2. The calibration looks the same when using BasIColor software, and it looks WORSE using the new i1 profiling software that is bundled (see below).
3) The USB card is *still* not long enough to reach all of my monitors. The cord is only 6'long, and it needs to be about 10'. This is quite an oversight, as one would think that Xrite would realize that the kind of person that is willing to spend $250 on a calibration device *probably* has more than one monitor. I have 3 on my main machine, and the cord is not long enough to reach all three without an extender.
4) For a $250 device that is use only occasionally, Xrite *should* provide a case to keep it clean and secure when not in use.
SOFTWARE (review based on latest release at the time of version 1.3.1 on OS X):
The i1 Profiler software is useless. I have three monitors on my main machine, and the software calibrated them all incorrectly and not even close to each other. It was shockingly bad. However, it was not the hardware device - I was able to get a very good calibration using the BasICColor Display software from BasICColor using the same i1 Display Pro hardware.
The bundled i1 profiling software is not only incapable of correctly calibrating and profiling monitors, it has very few options, and limited usefulness. Among other problems:
1) Even with "advanced mode", the available gamma curves and colorspaces is extremely limited. There is no option for L* or 2.6 for instance, and you can not customize it.
2) The "auto calibration" does not seem to work particularly well, if at all.
3) Unlike BasICColor Display, i1 Profiler can not adjust and load the internal LUTs of high-end displays like the NEC PA271W. This is a very big deficiency, but is a built-in feature of BasICColor Display.
IN SHORT: If you are getting a first-time display calibrator, the hardware is fine when used in combination with BasICColor Display, but the software bundle with the i1 profiler is not competent tot he task on it's own.
- This is colorimeter, unlike the spectrophotometer that the i1 Pro is. There is a lot of debate on which will give you a more accurate color rendition on your monitor, with most people arguing that the $1,000+ Pro does a better job because it costs more. I would disagree. The i1 Pro does a good job on monitors and many other devices, but the i1 Display Pro (this unit) is slightly better at detecting low level gradations in your monitor near neutral grays. This device is single purpose and finely tuned to it, versus being a multi-application device. I am sure people will disagree with me on this, but that is my assessment. I will be picking up the i1 Pro for printing calibration in the future and will continue to use this device for my monitors.
- The software that powers the device is straightforward provided you watch the video on their training site ([...] ). They charge for many of the classes, but the one for this device is free. I'm using a Mac and so I can't speak for the PC experience, but I much like the calibration reminder in the menubar that is green if you are good to go, or red if it's time to calibrate (once a week for color sensitive work, every other week if color is important but not critical). The old software had a big pop up at restart which was only useful if you shut your computer down every night, and your monitor should warm up for 20 minutes or so before you do the calibration anyway.
- Many people have reported memory leak issues with the continual ambient light adjustments. If your environment doesn't change much, you would be better served to measure the ambient light at calibration time, and then not worry about the continual measurements (which will keep your computer processing to what you are working on).
- I opted to buy this as a package with the ColorChecker Passport for an extra $50. If you are doing a lot with photographs, or want to eyeball your printer accuracy all the way from capture to print, this is a handy tool to have. It also looks cool and professional. I have yet to use it for anything and realistically won't in the near future but it seemed like a deal at the time and I jumped for it. My work is in graphic design, so most of the time, the photos I use have already been captured and tweaked to perfection. If you are capturing them yourself, you may have more utility for it (though you should be shooting RAW, and need to leave your manual camera settings the same from shot to shot to really benefit from it. For candids, it would be worthless).
Overall I am very happy with my purchase, and the color difference on my mac is substantial. I noticed one of the other reviews complaining that his monitor is very yellow after calibrating. He saw that as a negative, and I think of that as a positive because the point of calibrating your monitor with a measurement device is to take your perception of color out of the equation and use something scientific. If you monitor looks substantially different to you afterward, that means you have been looking at the wrong colors for a long time, and you'll benefit the most from the change to being 'dead - on' with your color.
I don't need this, or want this.
Unless Amazon takes it back, I will be researching X-Rite's competitors.
