with a Colormunki I could profile more printers.
I don't have a Colormunki, so consider the source ...,
The posts I've seen from people who seem to know what they are doing ... is that the printer profiles from an entry-level Colormunki are generally as good as from the higher-end i1Pro's. The difference is that the i1Pro (1 and 2) devices take less time (one pass of patches) and will generally give more consistent results.http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/42041796
People have figured out how to get more patches on a page and use ArgyllCms to avoid the two-step approach used by the Colormunki.
