x-rite i1 Studio v. SpyderX Studio

My goal is to get a print that looks as close as possible to my screen.

I'm trying to sort out the best calibration solution for home printing. I'm using an Epson R3000 and a 2014 27" iMac with a Dell P2715Q second monitor. At some point, I hope to buy a BenQ SW271.

I have a Spyder4 which has never gotten me close to matching print to screen using soft proofing in PS and paper profiles from Epson. So, I gave up on it. Other than that, I am completely new to calibration although I did read the discussion on this forum on the topic of calibration from 4 months ago and have been looking at the documentation for DisplayCAL.

The Spyder X Studio looks like a good solution, but I have read poor reports about the previous generations and was never happy with the Spyder4.

The x-rite products get good reviews and it looks like the i1 Studio would work well. However, it is a spectrometer and I've seen some things that indicate that I should get a colorimeter instead.

Your thoughts will be appreciated.
