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
