This is an excellent mid-range colorimeter for calibrating and profiling your displays, essential for serious photo work. Note it is far superior to the cheaper, entry-level Smile model--the latter is an old model that uses gelatin rather than glass filters, which will decay and go out of spec faster.

The hardware inside it the same to the ipro version. The different is the software. I use with dispcalgui software every 2 to 3 month to recalibrate the monitor.

Is the worth paying extra to get the i1Display over this even if it has the same hardware?

Same stuff except that s5x100 has software use limited to one hardware. U can always use open source alternatives but I have heard they cud be cumbersome.

I'm not sure how it would work for a projector or big-screen TV. You need to have it attached to a computer. Maybe with a big screen you could just generate some graphs, but you would have to do the calibration by hand. With the projector... idk man.

Only if you need the software (a few extra features) and the extra speed of the i1Display (doing multiple monitors). Apparently the Colormunki Display is artificially limited in firmware to be slower. Not a big deal if you only have one or two monitors to do.

"The ColorMunki Display device should not be thought of as just the cheaper solution. Used with care it should easily provide profiles that match the quality of the more expensive i1Profiler based i1Display Pro." From this review [northlight-images.co.uk] that also compares features vs. i1Display.

Another good review [color-management-guide.com] with a walkthrough of the process.

X-Rite software supports projectors out of the box. Apparently it works for TVs as well, but you might need to use open source DisplayCalGUI [hoech.net] and calibrate manually (but would still need the ability to hook your computer up to the TV).

A colorimeter won't fix a mediocre monitor, though. In fact, a mediocre monitor that's calibrated will probably have more banding and such.

The nice thing about them (with even average panels) is that they help to get rid of the ugly bluish color cast that's the standard. I use my monitors at 5800K.

The list price for this is bogus. It is never sold for anything that high.

very nice. is looking for one of those to calibrate my monitor.
64 is such a bargain consider it can calibrate multiple. which is much better licensing than Spyder

I am leery of X-Rite after they orphaned my current color checker (i1Display2) first on Mac when Rosetta support was ended by whatever version Apple did that in and now my Windows machines with Win10. They reluctantly offered a limited version of their higher-end Mac software, but took nearly a year to release it. They ended Windows support with Win7, but I had been able to get it working on Win8; Win10 was total no go, so I'm shopping for a replacement meter. The price is nice, but I'd probably buying needless hardware when the OSes change again.
