I'm not totally happy with the linearization done by i1pro spectrophotometer. It's perfect in lights and midtones, but it shows some banding and color shifts in shadows. Of course, I also prefer the idea of having something that can calibrate and profile anything I want.

Maybe it's not the spectro, just the software/monitor combo you are using ?
I recommend you drive the i1 with Basiccolor or ColorEyes software.

I use Nec 2190UXi with Spectraview II profiler. It calibrates TRC using 12bit internal monitor LUT, with 256 steps, average low light measurements, and best grayscale color tracking. It gives good results in light parts, or when the panel's set to high luminosity levels, but the darker the sample is, the worse effect it gives, so I suspect it is a matter of device.

BasICColor doesn't work with non-Spectraview Nec, and the trick that turns SV mode doesn't work in my panel, but I'll take a look at ColorEyes.

ColorEyes will bring nothing to the table since you now lose the communication with the SpectraView and turn a smart monitor into a dumb one.

IF you have both a Coloriemeter (better for dark measurements) and a Spectrophotometer, there is a way, at least with the US SpectraView software to use both; Spectrophotometer for making a custom white and colorimeter for the rest of the calibration. Email me an I'll provide the instructions. No idea if this would work with BasICColor version but it might.
