    Hi, I was set to get a Display Pro Plus when I read 2 very interesting things.

    1. X-Rite never implemented their advertised negative black offset or whatever they call it. They said, apparently, that in the end it didn’t work out as they had expected so they didn’t include it, but the marketing team didn’t find out until later. Um… oops? lol
    2. The i1Display Plus Pro is almost exactly the same as the i1Display Pro OEM verB. The only difference is the unlock code, and (I don’t know this one) possibly it doesn’t come with X-Rite’s software. This part I don’t know, and I also don’t know if you can just download the software yourself, or if it will read an OEM serial number and refuse to work. Not that that is such a big deal when we’re here because of DisplayCal. 🙂

    So, my questions are, can I buy an OEM in Canada, that ships from Canada to avoid customs fees/possible warranty problems, and is there any difference in the OEM warranty?

    Thanks!

    The OEM instruments are not bundled with software from X-Rite (other than driver and support files) because they are meant for bundling with 3rd party software. The main and only difference (apart from unlock code)  for the OEM Rev.B and retail versions of the i1 Display Pro is that the OEM version is rated for up to 2000 cd/m², while the retail version is rated up to 1000 cd/m² (the i1 Display Pro Plus matches the OEM version and supports up to 2000cd/m² as well).

    I have no idea about warranty regulations in Canada. I’d advise checking with the place you’re going to buy from, as there is usually a difference between manufacturer guarantee and seller warranty (at least in Germany, warranty is mandated by law, covers 24 months, with the burden of proof on the seller during the first six months, and on the customer after that. A manufacturer guarantee on the other hand is not mandatory here, and cannot replace the warranty).

    Thanks Florian, although I have no idea where I would find an OEM revB for sale in Canada atm, from what I’ve heard, the software for it is pretty “meh.” lol
