Reasons to not buy the 'SV' bundle.

other than cost (which is a big one....but)

The puck that is bundled with the SV package only works with NEC monitors. I recently bought a PA241W-BK, SpectraView II by itself, and an i1 Display Pro retail, so that I can use the i1DP (and the software that came with it) to calibrate other monitors. Such as the Samsung monitor that I use as a secondary monitor.

Also, some SV packages have the obsolete i1D2 puck. If you do get a SV package, make sure that it comes with the new MDSVSENSOR3

puck (which is a locked down i1DP) It is about $50 more to buy everything separately so you can get a retail i1DP.

SpectraView II software by itself:
