If you're buying a calibrator you'd have to think long and hard before you consider any other brand...
We've been selling and supporting X-Rite equipment for over a decade now and they're an excellent brand. Their key strength is hardware, and their options are routinely the best choices for most people with a deep interest in and need for colour accuracy.
In their i1 range, they have the industry standard monitor calibrator, and the industry standard general purpose calibration system. Almost every after-market RIP and calibration software made in the world today supports X-Rite measurement equipment, and quite frankly if you're buying a calibrator you'd have to think long and hard before you consider any other brand.
Calibration is a fine art, and can be tricky - make sure you buy your equipment from people who've been using the hardware and software in a production environment and have real world experience to build on. We use X-Rite equipment to calibrate our screens and printers for our fine art printing service, and it would be fair to say we've literally built a very successful fine art business on the results of X-Rite calibrations.
As with all products purchased from Image Science, we are able to offer lifetime support - so if you have any issues or technical enquires please feel free to contact us.

Image Science have been very easy to deal with, more than happy to help someone who previously knew nothing about how any of this worked! I knew what I wanted to achieve but no idea how to make it happen but had literally a million questions that were answered for me and was guided through how to make my plan a reality. I’m very happy with the result!
