Read virtually all this thread and the tips regarding its positioning etc. have been useful.
I find it best to fit my C6 onto the tripod (via its bracket) then after positioning the Colormunki against the screen of my LCD I can press the closed C6 behind the Colormunki ti keep it in place.
For anyone else who finds the i1Pro Spectro expensive I can recommend this one.
As far as I am aware accuracy is not an issue for the amateur (probably because it shares its active componants with the i1 Spectro), its main problem is its shape but that is no real hardship as said above.
Not sure how it would perform with a PJ but for my Display it's ideal.
The biggest problem with the ColorMunki Spectro is that X-Rite in its infinite wisdom refused to allow SpectraCal competitiors access to its SDK. Only SpectraCal was allowed to sell it with software support from what i understand. This restriction on the CM spectro is one of my pet peeves. Tom would certainly have loved to support in its heyday.
I just bought an i1 pro from SpectraCal on their recent annual garage sale. It came with a fresh cert and and although B-Stock was complete with carry case and all accessoris. It was not as cheap as some deals on fleabay but it seem eminently fair considering how little extra capability the new gen adds. The fresh cert was a plus. Like you I intend to use it to profile my D3.
