Is it a fact (did anybody compare the readings on a WCG display yet?) or only an assumption (based on the fact that it's a 3-stimulus colorimeter)?
I am wondering if the X-Rite software applies some kind of generic corrections for the given WCG-CCFL/LED/etc displays based on the EDID information? (Something like the Quato iColor software does?) Or it is really capable of working on WCG displays?
My i1LT was useless on my WCG-CCFL LCD display (Dell U2410 , > AdobeRGB or the integer encoded CIE Lab) but one of my friends had a freshly re-calibrated i1d2 (they just sent it back from Switzerland, it was about 2010.05.xx) which is actually worked on that display. It looked right and I could check it back some weeks later with my freshly bought ColorMunki. The WP showed an acceptable and usual deviance only (not bigger than a drift which could happen after I moved the display to a different location with different room temperature and some weeks passed...) So, I think these colorimeters could work relatively well on any display.
It could be a coincidence but I am optimistic about these new colorimeters. May be they will be accurate inside the integer encoded part of CIE Lab if not further.
But yah, may be everybody should wait with the "big online auction of the spectros" until it's tested on various displays.
