The deactivation of the CRT table is done via the Colorvision software, so that is not something that varies from meter to meter.
The Platinum are the "hand picked" Spyders, and they test well. The only issue is filter degradation over time. At the pricing for these, though, you are getting fairly close to an i1 Pro...
