Top customer reviews
X-Rite i1Display Pro software was calibrating my displays until I upgraded my Dell XPS-15 Laptop from Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit to Win 10 Pro 64 bit. According X-Rite, the current version i1Profiler 1.6.3 and XRD 2.4.0, was compatible with Win 10. When I attempted to profile my laptop in Advanced Mode, (Display>Profiling>User Mode=Advanced) the software would NOT bring up the next dialog panel (Assets-Default Measurement). Even before I need to connect my hardware, the software hangs and the cursor just spins until the error message comes up that "i1Profiler has stopped working" "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available". My only option is to close the program.
After over a month of dealing with X-Rite Support, and having to place all my photo editing on hold, in the end they insisted that “Based on what they can determine from the files you've provided, our engineers are also of the opinion that this intermittent failure is likely due to a failing hardware device.” The problem with that scenario is that if the hardware device was failing, I should have had the same issue with my Dell XPS-8300 Desktop running Win 10 Home 64 bit. The DT worked fine and the LT did not. Perhaps the calorimeter was not adjusted at optimum or was starting to fail, BUT, X-Rite totally failed to acknowledge that they had a software issue with Win 10 Pro 64 bit. I do not think that rigorous software testing was conducted on all the Win 10 versions by X-Rite. It is very easy to mislead their customers into believing that they could upgrade to any version of Win 10 and the software would work. I was ‘thrown under the bus” by X-Rite and told I was out of warranty and if I wanted my current hardware tested, I would have to pay or buy a replacement device.

I bought this because there really aren't many options when it comes to consumer calibrators. It's either X-Rite (ColorMunki/i1Display, which are really the same thing), or Spyder, whose filter design has historically been called less precise in all comparisons I've seen over the years. Everything else is either more entry level/"consumer", or more expensive/complicated/assumes the users has a knowledge (such as third party calibrator software that come with no hardware, but use the OEM version of the i1Display Pro or are multi-device aware). I also had a RapidRebates offer for for $50 off.
First things first, I simply hate the software. It is lacking and needs an overhaul. There are trial-and-error aspect of the software which should NOT be present. Here are some of my favorite annoyances:
* It doesn't look complicated, but parts of it feel un-intuitive, such as the next step consisting of a typical next button, but also with buttons in an area above, which, if going just by the next button each time, makes it so you don't even calibrate anything in advanced mode. The assets feature as well. I always gravitate towards advanced modes in programs, since they are the ones that give you full control. Advanced doesn't need to mean hard though.
* The table based profile type (Step 2, Advanced mode) will help profile poor quality monitors better, however it's not available in beginner mode, and the help file on the left hand panel doesn't mention this (only that they may offer better rendering and that for general use, use a matrix profile instead).
* There is no way to tell your if your profile is currently active or not in i1Profiler or the tray program, nor is there any simple ON/OFF switch. This is a huge flaw IMO, the whole purpose of something like this is to know it's currently "working", not to mention most GPU driver programs (AMD Catalyst, etc) can modify things over your profile or have direct access to the GPU look-up-table. Seriously, some assurance that you can see it on or easily reload a profile should be included. Even the original Huey has this! UPDATE: see the end for 2 solutions to this.
* You can't see the before/after until you create a profile, then that is your only time unless you run the whole calibration again, or load the ICC profile as the ICC profile step's data during another calibration (advanced mode only, asset feature)
* Both "Automatic Display Control (ADC)" and "Adjust brightness, contrast, and RGB gains manually" hardware calibration options are not selectable if both your target white point and luminance levels are set to Native - at least one of them has to be have an actual value (nowhere is this revealed, I found it on trial and error).
* Dual monitors, I have only tried once and it literally made zero change to the other monitor, literally nothing happened... I tried it some time again later, but I'm not the hugest fan of it's setup. I think breaking up some of the options into multiple pages may significantly help with it's workflow in advanced mode.
ADC I'm iffy about. I got some weird results when I used ADC, it actually introduced some green banding in one of the sample comparison pictures (the third one with the guy with the dark black hair), plus it took a long time when I had all 3 controls selected to be adjusted (brightness, contrast, and RGB - my monitor does have manual RGB gain controls, it is an ASUS ProArt series). Manually adjusting the controls works better, and it's not like it's any less accurate either, since you keep the device on your screen and it shows you targets you to hit, continually monitoring while you do it.
It has some presets for photography or print profiling, but I think they are a bit out of touch TBH. While I agree that having a lower brightness helps to match prints, in the real world, people who don't make prints are going to be using these and they are set to 120 cd/m^2 brightness, which is too little IMO. The 160 cd/m^2 is a better option, or just tell people to set their own brightness and then instruct the program to use the native luminance. They will not significantly impact prints, at least consumer printing places which take these things into account.
The colorimeter's Flare Correct can try to correct for glare on the screen and it's a cool feature. It's not selected by default, and the software doesn't make a recommendation one way, but the X-Rite's support page says, "Consider enabling this option if there is a large amount of glare on the surface of the display when the display is powered off while seated in a normal position relative to the display." and "Typically, Flare Correct will improve the accuracy of the display profile." I usually use my computer in darkened room, but it said it would improve the accuracy of the display profile, so I ran it anyways, thinking that it would just get a value which would be ignored. The results I got with it were strange. It had me adjust the brightness level to 54, which is quite low, and the resulting profile had whites that didn't resonate ANY kind of whiteness... 255,255,255 isn't supposed to look dull, and that's what it looked like. I ran another calibration (D65/native brightness/native contrast/adjust controls manually) without Flare Correction, and this time it didn't have me adjust brightness at all, it left it at the setting (70) that was selected at the beginning. For some reason, with Flare Control on, it was having me set my level to 150, though it looked worse than that. They need clarity on this issue - my advice is to leave it off unless you actually have glare, or it will lead to poor results.
I don't know if it was the software's fault, but when I first installed and started using it, my results were literally inconsistent, even though I wasn't making huge changes in the profiling setup. I wasn't sure if I got a lemon or it was just the freaking software and it's undocumented issues. I was considering returning it and getting a Spyder5 instead. They have updated the software twice since I've had it, and in the latest update (1.6.3), they specifically said mention that there are improvements to the algorithm and such. Like the rest of their mess of communication though, you can only see the documented changelog in the installer. The website only says that they fixed bugs from a previous version.
I ~did~ get my rebate from Rapid Rebates money too! It took the full 10 weeks, but it arrived. They want an original invoice, but as Amazon doesn't give those out, I printed one and it worked. If you have any problems with RR, refer them to my review.
In the end, I decided to keep it, and the inconsistencies seem to be gone, but the software leaves a lot to be desired. I cannot give it past 3 stars simply due i1Profiler. It needs to be simplified and have better in program help.
UPDATE: I found out how to apply previously created ICC profiles. I have somebody else in my house with a low quality monitor, so I'd like to let them use mine when they need to, but switch but be able to switch between their calibration for their monitor, and mine when they connect it. Somebody made a program called "DisplayProfile" which shows you all the profiles installed and loads what you chose. I'll link it below. I believe you can also reload a profile via going into advanced mode in i1Profiler, selecting your ICC profile from the assets menu as the ICC profile step, and then resaving it, like you just created it.
