Both the GMB Eye-1 Display 2 colorimeter and the Eye-1 Pro spectro (from I-1 Photo) can be used with Eye-1 Match to do monitor profiling, but is there anything to choose between them?
The spectro ought to be able to obtain more data, but does this make any difference in practice?
If I have both instruments, is there any reason to keep the Display? Is there anything it does better?
A good question and one that is raging a bit on the ColorSync users list right now.
We have found that, in practice, it is very difficult to tell the difference between using the Display vs the Eye-One Pro. I can’t remember if there is a difference in speed or not.
Overall I feel that spectros are better at reading anything because they take the most samples and then the human eye response information can be applied in math (which is stable yet upgradable if required) vs filters (which are possibly prone to aging and are fixed)
So I’d hold onto the Pro and use the Display elsewhere or pass it on.
