Review of x-rite i1 Disply Pro & Profiler
Pros: Very noticeable colour correction. Takes about 3 minutes. Ensures whites are white. Necessary for printing. Less eye stress.
Cons: It's another device to buy and own.
Buy? Yes, I recommend it.
I spend the better part of my day staring at a display so I might as well be looking at an accurate interpretation of colour. A hardware profiler compares the colour values being displayed from your monitor and adjusts them in software to be as accurate and as true as possible. It's particularly useful when trying to match a colour profile of a printer so what you see on screen is what you get on paper.
Many displays by default tend to be more cool with a blue tint. It's often only apparent when you compare with a corrected display.
The light meter will continue to measure the ambient light in the room and adjusts the monitors brightness relative to your surroundings.
I'm convinced it helps with eye fatigue. My eyes love it.
