I'm going to be taking my i1Display, and Spyder3 as carry on. They're going to be in a Pelican 1200 case with a ilica Gel re-usable desiccant pack. Has anyone else had experience with the way TSA handles this? I really don't want them throwing around my stuff.



Thanks

As a carry on, I wouldn't be too worried. I routinely fly with a few thousand dollars worth of camera equipment as carry-ons, and they've never given me a hard time. It goes through the x-ray machine on the conveyor, and that's about it.

Thanks, that's what I'm hoping. The meters do look pretty weird though.

It really depends on the airport you travel through and the current threat status. In some, you will get it x-ray'ed and that is it. Others will open it and test for explosives/chemicals/etc.. Both are painless.


BTW, never tell the TSA your equipment is something it is not. You are just asking for trouble.

Absolutely correct! You could say textile industry, photography or video calibration since the equipment is used in all of those industries and for generally the same purpose of color measurment.
However, you shouldn't say it is used for audio calibration...that would be a no no!

To each his own. There is no reason to twist the truth when it comes to the TSA. Respect them by being 100% honest and you are guaranteed to get it back. I've flown enough times with my equipment to see this first hand
