just some input from my side on the IO...

we have one (11106/REVB) which was  DOA and has been in service at GMB/XRITE twice afterwards. to be honest i'm quite disappointed by the craftsmanship of the device (we had a non levelled arm and a non working static mat due to the flex cable to be broken). plus a ac-adaptor thet failed (received an onsite exchange part).

in the past devices like the spectroscan or the iccolor were designed more robust.

we also ha a iSis in use which is quite nice but make quite some very high pitch noise (guess this will be solved once i get beyong 50 years of age *g*) - otherwise it's fast, fast, fast - simply lacking thick stock materials plus transparent media.

our solution to all issues mentioned above - the Spectro LFP RT from Barbieri. wonderfully crafted, quite fast and capable of pretty much everything you might imagine to measure.

PLUS tech support never seen before - we had some minor issues with the transparency lamp - within an hour or so mr barbieri himself called and dispatched of a spare. we needed a very special chart - next day we had the reference files plus the target.

they were also very cooperative in arranging a try & buy offer thru their german distributor...

just take a look at http://www.barbierielectronic.com/

bye,

I am at a client's site today where the owner would love to buy a perfectly functioning iO off of any of you guys that wish you had gotten an iSis instead. Contact me at scott@on-sight.com if you would like to unload an iO table without the EyeOne.

Perfectly functioning and EyeOne i0 are rarely used in the same sentence.

Look guys, I have the first production unit of the i0 and its been working great for me when there isn't a target/software issue (I've had no mechanical issues). And I suspect I've built a few thousand profiles with it.

Stupid question, but are you confident that the patches are large enough to be read consistently? As a side question, what is the minimum size that the i1 / iO will support?
[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=152691\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Currently using the charts produced by Bill atkinson for the EyeOne i0, and I don't resize.  He has an explanation of how he determined the DPI and size of the charts.   I have been creating several profiles a week for the past couple of months, first for a new 3800 I purchased, then for the ipf6100 Canon sent as a trade trial, and now for the Epson 11880.  For about the past two months with the Canon I haven't had any problem reading any chart whatsoever.  Flawless, occasionally a page would error out, and a 180 degree flip resolved it.  Then the problems started, and have gotten continually worse, to the point that the Rev. B will no longer read in a target that it read quite easily just last week.

I am working on enabling my software to produce charts based on Andrews suggestion they read better if the colors are random.  I like how Bill's charts are produced because you can compare them to the targets printed by other printers, but that's not really important.  Bill's targets utilize a black/white line between each patch to supply a contrast change for the device.  I'm not sure if measure tool targets have that or just never but two similar densities next to each other.

I'll keep working on it.
