Upgrade from HCFR to Calman basic or Chromapure standard?

I want to upgrade from HCFR to something within my $200 budget. Looking at both they each seem to have the functionality I need. Only issue I have with Chromapure standard is cost per additional meter if ever I needed to upgrade mine. I have the i1Display Pro, which I believe works with both.

Which one do you guys think is a better tool? Something one can continue to learn from and grow into? From what I have read either one seems good enough, so I'm a little confuse.

I'd recommend Calman. I started with Basic and now use Advanced. If you aren't new to calibration, just go with Calman Advanced.

What is it that's missing in HCFR that you are seeking in Calman/Chromapure?

Don't you have to spend more than the $200 with Calman and Chromapure to get the functionality needed to do a calibration?

Thanks for the suggestions. I got the Chromapure and have successfully calibrated with it. It's much better put together than HCFR and was worth the upgrade. Not sure if Calman is a better choice. So far happy with Chromapure, in terms of navigation and simplicity in design.
