Ok reality, most people don't really care, unless it is free, then they will be critical that it isn't in some way related to their distorted view of the world.
However many with education of what calibration actually means will somewhat come round to the idea.
I have calibrated a couple of clients where by I left it up to them if they pay me should they ultimately prefer a calibrated display, it can be viewed a risk for me, but I was confident they would actually pay. Although I made a judgement call on their morals aswell. In each case I said, leave it a month and see how you feel then. They have all paid.
Then there are those who are hostile, they will not listen, not even to education. Here the best approach is leave it be, it is not worth the argument.
Ultimately we enjoy the results of our efforts, they enjoy their choice. That is a free world.
The i1Dpro is a good device, mine measures very well relative to my Jeti1211 and i1pro
People ignore display varibility, especially the displays ability to create repeatable low video levels. I'd argue that the i1Dpro is more repeatable at the 1~5% level than many displays. This can lead to many claiming problems making measurements below 10% levels.
Just remember part of the process is assesment of the results, not just relying on the reported data. It's where the pro's and good diy'ers earn their salt.
If you want a Panasonic, get in quick. The writing is on the wall for Plasma in general.
