I received an X-Rite Eye-One Display 2 with CalMAN for Christmas. I want to use it for many display types, but the most important to me is my front projector.
CurtPalme.com says that the CalMAN-enhanced Spyder 3 is a better unit for projectors due to lack of a tripod mount on the D2 and the diffuser not being great for taking measurements directly from the lens.
My question is, should I send it back and buy the CalMAN-enhanced Spider 3, or super glue a tripod mount to the Display 2?
How important is the direct lens method? Will I get an accurate calibration with the D2 pointed at the screen?
In other words, is the upgrade to Spyder 3 worth the minor hassle of exchanging products through the mail, or just work with what I have?
Thank you for your help
