This review takes you through the practical use of the device for monitor and projector profiling and is filled with all the technical data that you might want to consider.  And in the end he considers whether this solution is right for you. This review is a great place to start for in depth understanding of the monitor and projector features of the i1Pro 2 solutions as well as a look at the accessories and new design.

Keith points out that there is a removable filter in the Limiting Aperture that allows for user cleaning.  I removed the Limiting Aperture from my own device this morning just to see how it comes apart and goes back together. Note that it’s going to be very stiff both taking off the aperture and removing the filter for cleaning on the first go. But it will loosen up once you’re removed and reinstalled it once.  I did note that the leading edge tab on the removable filter must seat properly back into the Limiting Aperture to allow it to be reinstalled on the device. See the red notations on the instruction image below.
