In April 2005, GretagMacbeth (now part of X-Rite) began shipping a revised version of the i1 Pro Spectrophotometer in all end user packages.
The Revision B instrument is much faster than the older Revision A instrument, yet there is no difference in accuracy between the two.
The Revision B instrument also has improved Teflon pads on the bottom to reduce paper scratching if you use the old style ruler.
In August 2006 Rev D was introduced, with changes made to the material content to comply with the Europe RoHS legislation.
Parts of the components were replaced with new materials to make them lead-free.
There was no change to performance in Rev D instruments; in terms of speed and accuracy they are the same as Rev B.
In order to clearly identify the i1 Pro devices in the field a new revision had to be introduced.
But the Rev. A i1PRO it's propably a 10 years old meter...
