Impressive though the i1 Display Pro is, many of its advanced options aren’t necessary for home studio use. The ColorMunki Display, on the other hand, gives you all the control you could want, plus a simplified basic mode that’s a doddle to navigate. What’s more, it produced an almost identical colour profile to the pricier i1 Display Pro, albeit at a more leisurely pace.
Like its bigger brother you get X-Rite’s Ambient Light Smart Control feature to adjust your monitor’s brightness to match the lighting conditions you’ll be working in when inspecting prints. There’s also a dedicated flare correction feature to help compensate for any direct glare hitting your screen. Calibration time: 5 minutes 5 seconds Colour accuracy after calibration (Delta-E, lower scores better): 0.69
It’s a dead-ringer for the rangetopping i1 Display Pro, and in our tests it was also just as accurate
