FS: X-Rite i1Display Pro colorimeter $100 shipped
 
2 Attachment(s)
Typical retail price: $280 - https://www.xrite.com/categories/cal.../i1display-pro

My price: $100 shipped*

Shipping: Must be within 48 US states other than Alaska and Hawaii
*Hawaii, Alaska, and non-US, it's $100 + shipping

Package origin location zip code: 29803

Condition: Perfect, opened up and tested for 10 minutes

Overview:
I calibrate my monitors and displays with identical probe and can guide on how to create accurate 3DLUT profiles for games and playback with DisplayCAL (free software, no purchases needed). It's a much better alternative than using limited ICC profiles generated with X-Rite software. Besides, ICC profiles often require stuttery Borderless mode and can't be fully applied in games. "Pre-calibrated/factory-calibrated" are usually gimmicks because each display unit needs its own profile and settings can vary greatly.

People who would benefit are those who want the best accuracy and thus image quality their displays can pull, as well as, see their games and watch their films the way developers/makers intended:
1. Pro's who are into photography and related editing
2. Gamers with VA, TN, and IPS displays, although VA and TN owners would likely see more benefit due to VA and TN panels usually having less accurate colors compared to IPS
3. Home-Theater Enthusiasts with whichever displays or projectors

I'm bumping it down to $100 shipped, but that's as low as it goes.

Might want to fix the title, if possible. I agree about DisplayCAL. It seems most colorimeter manufactures segment their products based on the software features while selling you the same hardware no matter what you pay... Meanwhile DisplayCAL is free and can do almost everything the expensive packages do.

OOPS! I was editing and had it at $110 originally, then wanted at $100. $10 was a typo, not a deliberate marketing thingy...

At $10, I would have bought it even if it was broken...

Yes, it's great for DIY, but not if you want to be in the business of calibration. DisplayCAL is a GUI, the real engine is ArgyllCMS and it really is generous for its developer to provide it for free. Nothing comes close to it and the guy is real smart, attends all kinds of color & display-related conferences. I even met some people who met him.
