So 575$ Seems To Be A Good Offer.

Actually it's just $560 if you buy from AVS or CurtPalme.

How can I buy it and save some money?

Please click on the banner for the AV Science store and buy it there. Please support the forum by buying it there rather than somewhere else.

Does anyone know if the OEM meter will be coming with the X-Rite software as well for this price? I would like to confirm this before ordering.

Thanks.

No it would not.

In the case of CalMAN, we have a PC Calibration add on if you need to calibrate the PC and create ICC profiles.

from SpectraCal: http://www.spectracal.com/press.aspx

the C6 can be purchased at an opening price of $595 ($695 after July 31, 2011)

This helps to confirm my good luck in purchasing ChromaPure when I did.

Yet the regular version is only $245 and $295 after this month

SpectraCAL C6 vs. SpectraCAL i1Display OEM Comparison

http://www.spectracal.com/admin/prod...Mi1Display.pdf
post #160 of 1402
So, how far off of "true" is the cheaper $265 version? I just bought a VT30 that I want to calibrate myself, but it will most likely be a one-and-done deal. Although I do tend to want the best of the best, that extra $300 needed to achieve it is really giving me pause, especially if a decent amount of that is going towards a case which doesn't add to my display performance at all.

695-295 = 400 dollars

For a case and a tripod holder and some profiles?

Seriously?

If I just get the OEM i1Display to calibrate my plasma and LCD, will it not be my best choice?

Actually, you may want to recalibrate every 2-3k hours; displays will drift. I first calibrated our plasma after 500 hours of use, and at 5000 hours, the grayscale had drifted a bit toward yellow. A few clicks to increase blue a bit, and all is well again.

That meter represents a tremendous value to the home user.

The C6 is primarily aimed at Pros.

You can't get a better all around meter for less than our OEM i1Display.

It also appears that you only get the 5x speed increase with the C6.

Thanks, it just alarmed me on that comparison chart, that plasma was not checked.

The display types that are checked are basically the display types that will have enhanced accuracy with a C6.

You can use either meter on all of those display types, but the C6 comes with more specific profiles to further enhance accuracy.

And extra accuracy on things like white LED vs RGB LED, instead of a simple LED profile.
post #170 of 1402
What about that 5x speed claim? Does that jive with what we've read earlier in this thread?
Personally, I don't like all these colorimeter enhancements. My C5 seemed better off before I sent it in to get enhanced. So I planned to just use the Display Pro when I profile it off a spectro. Therefore, the extra tables are no incentive for me.
The only advantage then besides the case and tripod extender, which mean little to me, would be the 5x speed claim.

Enhancements will vary from vendor to vendor.

The 5x speed difference is what X-Rite claims as a difference between the ColorMunki Display and i1Display Pro versions (retail and OEM) of the meter.

This has nothing to do with vendor-specific enhancements.

How does the $265 version compare to an DTP-94?

About 4 years ago I bought a Monaco PC kit that came with the DTP-94 to calibrate my last plasma and it's been sitting in a dark storage box this whole time. I don't know how much off-cal it is since I don't have a spectrophotometer but I'd imagine 4 years is enough to constitute a recalibration, even in low-light conditions.

At this point I'm weighing Cal software + OEM i1Display or Cal Software + DTP-94 recal charge (however much that is?).

The stock i1 Display 3 accuracy matches that of a stock Chroma 5. However, it's much faster and can read much lower.

the 'up to 5x faster' spec is comparing it to the Chroma 5...

from my understanding, SpectraCal's OEM i1 Display will have similar speed performance as their C6.

There is a new Bundle that includes CalMAN DIY w/Colorimeter Meter Add-on and the OEM i1 Display for $345 until the end of July, then $395.

For existing CalMAN DIY/Home users, you need the Colorimeter Add-on if you purchase the OEM i1 Display.

In This chart X-Rite OEM i1 Display is supported with CalMAN DIY without add-on licence according to that link.

this was told to me directly by Joshua Quain late this afternoon.. that "the OEM i1 Display requires the Colorimeter Add-on" ..... which is also the requirement for the Chroma 5.

I'll bring that table up immediately to Joshua and post with the appropriate correction after his reply....

The OEM i1 Display should be better than a DTP-94 in pretty much every objective comparable, and it doesn't need dark offsets.

How am I supposed to interpret the Plasma/CRT section of this chart by Spectracal that compares the C6 to the i1Display; particularly the lack of a check next to 'Plasma'?
