Hey there quick question (not sure if the right place to ask but you seem like the right person XD)Where do you see when it's manufactured?
You have to open the box and see the meter and see that.
The packages have the same X-Rite labels, will say copywrite 2012...something like that, its the print info of the label, not when meter produced.
Certification is for 18 months.
Any meter has natural aging, so I can't really tell you if one meter is still good after many years.
It has many variables, about humidity, direct sun exposure, dust etc.
Generally, I'm not suggesting users buy used Specto.
It's a better idea to save money and get your brand new unit.
i1PRO2 is not EOL; X-Rite will not produce new units...once all units currently available to stores sold out.
It's not that i1PRO2 is not a good meter; just after some time, it will not be available to buy a new stock model.
I am in the process of attempting to autocal my CX (ran into so so many errors so far). Just realised my dad has a i1 Photo Pro 2 - is that possible to use with my i1 Display Pro? Any benefits? Is that what you mean by Spectro? Sorry I am VERY noobie with all this!!
