| p.1 #1 · What brand colorimeter or spectrometer are you using and why? |
Years ago I had a Monaco Optix XR colorimeter for an older laptop. Now that I have upgraded to a iMAC desktop with newer LCD screen I am thinking of upgrading to a better colorimeter. X-Rite offered me, under their customer loyalty program, the i1Display Pro at a 25% discount, or $201 + tax and shiping. I found out that one can get the same at Amazon.com for the same price, so no big deal from X-Rite.
I also read a review that someone running on the MAC OS X (Lion) platform claims that this colorimeter has a "memory leak problem" which he claims X-Rite acknowledges in a telephone conversation. The ColorMunki, a betterpiece of hardware, is twice as expensive and probably exceeds my need for what I want to do, which is merely to profile my monitor. I send all print enlargements to a print lab, so I don't need profiling of the printer. I've read extensively on both pieces of hardware and am familiar their features, but I would like to know what people's experience are with the two major manufacturers, X-Rite and Datacolor.
Any bit of information is much appreciated.
