[QUOTE=ConnecTEDDD;51058689]About Spyder 5, I'm suggesting you to stay away from any Spyder meters, save some extra money and invest when you are ready to i1Display PRO; which is proven as better instrument for more accurate results.
As you can see from the following picture (the crosses away from the REC.709 triangle of the CIE Chart are bad/failed readings) from a test Steve Shaw performed (CEO of LightIllusion) show the poor performance of Spyder 4/5 meters where they fail to read properly dark colors.
i1Display PRO is supported by all calibration software solutions like CalMAN/ChromaPure/DispcalGUI/ArgyllCMS/LightSpace HTL or free ones like HCFR or LightSpace DPS.
Here you can see Tom's Huffman (ChromaPure) test: New Spyder 5 vs. i1Display Pro / ColorMunki Display
LightSpace and CalMAN also are not recommending to use Spyder meters for accurate calibration work.
i1Display PRO has glass dichroic filters which are sealed with rubber o-rings. So by design it will extended it's meter life and prevent drifting.
X-Rite's i1Display PRO is a better choice, it has more display technologies correction tables, it's faster, more stable, better low light measurements and it's been supported by all available calibration software (CalMAN/ChromaPure/LightSpace/ArgyllCMS/DispcalGUI/HCFR)
With i11Display PRO you will be able to calibrate all your PC monitors (unlimited number) also with the X-Rite i1Profiler that is coming with the meter, something you can't do with C3 (without spending money to get CalMAN's RGB or CalMAN Enthusiast which gives you the capability to calibrate 3 different monitors).
As we know the Rev.B has updated hardware/firmware that supports a new refresh rate detection and synchronization (AIO).
The latest generation of i1Display PRO (Rev.B) it features a new refresh rate detection and synchronization AIO (All in One) measurement mode which can improve the measurement stability for certain displays and provide lower reading times.
According to feedback I have from a Ted's LightSpace CMS Calibration Disk user which is using LightSpace HTL + i1DisplayPRO Rev.B + KURO + eeColor and he has performed a lot of testing using LightSpace's 'Measure and log' where it exports in excel (CVS) file format the xyY and the measuring times per each read in milliseconds, for us to find by comparing the data's which mode and integration time settings is giving him better repeatability while it has faster measuring speed (Test Procedure Link
)....we found by comparing the data's between AIO vs. Burst Mode (Rev. A using Burst mode for Plasma) from i1DisplayPRO Rev.B Meter that that new AIO mode is about 30-50% faster from Burst Mode of Rev. A from the data I have.
AIO mode is supported from only from LightSpace and ChromaPure, HCFR/DisplayCAL/ArgyllCMS has also custom code for providing similar results with adaptive exposure times/sync modes without using AIO mode.
I would rather get the i1Pro. It was pointed out by that I would not be able to use the JVC AutoCal to correct Gamma. Is that correct?
