replacement for Xrite i1 Pro

apparently Xrite i1 Pro can no longer be purchased and is under another company or name. i decided to to with this and it works great. Name branding is important and since there is no longer an i1 Pro, i went with this.

I've been impressed with the improved colors on almost all of my devices. It's great to see an improvement on a screen that is a decade or close to a decade old. But I am having an issue with one monitor that seems to have difficulties calibrating: my external AORUS curved monitor. After the calibration, the colors on the screen became inverted, which is very strange. So I've decided not to use it for color work. I've reached out to AORUS to see why this could have been the case, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Do I recommend this item? Yes, especially if you are color grading or doing any work that involves colors. The software is very straightforward and simplistic, with more advanced options, should you require them. Also, seeing the before and after the calibration is a huge plus!

Easy to use and very effective

Set up took less than 5 minutes. User interface is intuitive. There is even an option to calibrate multiple monitors to the same color. Highly recommended.

I used this with DisplayCal to get the output monitor hooked into my Blackmagic Decklink 4K, to display the correct colors.

My monitors now have consistent color

By Neil

I typically run three monitors, 2- 25 and a single 27. They are all different brands but work well for what I do. I started getting more into Lightroom and photo/video editing so I needed to ensure my monitors provide the same output. I purchased the Datacolor SpyderX Elite and quickly got started on calibrating my monitors. The process for all three took less than 15 minutes and they are now consistent. I had to knock one star off because the instructions are a little confusing but I managed to work through it. We will see how things turn out in a few weeks when I check the calibration.

I purchased this product on advice from a few professional photographers. I have run the calibration program -- very simple and straightforward on my Mac. Slight changes made. Left off a star because I don't really know what to do from there!

Great product for color-balancing monitors

By Susan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-11

As expected, this is a great product for color-balancing my monitors. We need balanced monitors in order to deliver consistent products to our clients, and this tool makes it very easy to achieve that goal. I was impressed with the way the Spyder X monitored the amount of light falling on the monitor, requiring me to reduce room light for a consistency. Wow - they really thought of everything! I have used lab color-correction for years, but switching labs during the pandemic now requires good color-balance prior to submission to the lab.
