    Great solution marred by few software issues, August 24, 2011

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    List of relevant hardware:
    Apple 15.4-inch MacBook Pro MC723LL/A (hi-res antiglare)
    Dell 24-inch UltraSharp U2410
    Apple LED Cinema Display 27-Inch MC007LL/A
    – 2007 Apple MacBook

    I am a software engineer by trade, a photography enthusiast (Canon DSLR with Aperture) and a home video editor (Canon AVCHD with Final Cut Pro) at nights and weekends. I have been using a borrowed Spyder3Pro (S3P for short), which is a reference for this review.

    X-Rite is perhaps the largest name in color matching products. It owns PANTONE and makes some of the most respected products. i1 Display Pro (i1D Pro for short) is its latest offering. The hardware is about the size of a memory card reader and smaller than S3P. Unlike S3P, i1D Pro has only the counterweight, lacking suction cups. The counterweight can be moved along the entire cable run. Counterweight is fine for most computer displays, but unusable when calibrating very large HDTV that some people use as a monitor or for HTPC (you will need to hold i1D Pro with your hand over 2 minute calibration run).

    All in all, i1D Pro feels substantial and more high-end than S3P. It has a built-in diffuser to measure ambient light and it is capable of calibrating CRT, LCD (CCFL, variations of LED), and even projectors. It has a flare correction feature to compensate for glossy flat screen displays, such as 27″ LED Cinema Display.

    iD Pro includes i1Profiler software that runs on both Windows (untested) and Mac (tested on 10.7 Lion). Installation was mostly uneventful (and no reboot required), although it did prompt to me update to 1.1.1 (from 1.1.0) and register and activate the product (it otherwise becomes a 30-day trial demo app). The app resembles Apple’s Aperture. Coming from S3P and television calibration experiences, I am pretty familiar with the art of display calibration and profiling. So I found the app to be fairly straightforward. Unlike S3P software, i1Profiler can calibrate luminance level as well.

    I used advanced mode to calibrate all 4 displays. First, using the app’s white patch measurement feature, I set luminance on my displays to as close to 100 cd/m2 as possible (by tinkering with brightness and/or contrast). 100 cd/m2 is below industry’s recommended 120-140 range, but I find 120 to be just too darn bright.

    The manual and online help are on the inadequate side, so if you are not familiar with profiling, you may want to visit the support section on X-Rite’s website to get additional clarification. On the positive side, aside from selecting backlighting type (CCFL and white LED in my case) and luminance level, default recommended values are all good and should be ideal for all but advanced users with discriminating needs.

    2 minutes later, I got ICC profiles with better color saturation, more accurate color, more natural whites, and/or deeper black level than S3P (when looking at before and after for various RAW files). The differences are sometimes subtle, but never worse and generally better. Comparing results to Mac OS X’s default ICC profiles is much more dramatic, which tends to be very blue with limited color saturation and contrast level. Mac OS X’s calibration mode can yield better results than the default, but still dramatically worse than i1D Pro’s profiles.

    On multi-monitor setup, dragging i1Profiler app from one display to another will let you calibrate other displays. The app can also measure your monitor for uniformity and color accuracy.

    That said, the application did crash few times and UI is a bit unrefined here and there. For instance, all important measure button is often hidden, requiring a scroll down. Help icon next to some controls do not reveal any hints of any kind.

    A companion piece is i1Profiler Tray, which can run continuously to remind you to recalibrate and uses i1D Pro to adjust for change in ambient light as needed. I am not a fan of ambience compensation, but it does work much better than Apple’s built-in feature.

    Also included is PANTONE Color Manager software.

    Excellent monitor calibrator, buggy software through!, December 7, 2011

    This review is from: X-Rite EODIS3 i1Display Pro (Electronics)

    I have owned this product for about 2 weeks now and here are my experiences with it. This monitor calibrator is truly fantastic when it comes to its manin purpose – calibrating colors on your monitor – it is extremely accurate and the process is much faster than any other calibrator I’ve seen out there. I really enjoy the automatic profile adjustment feature based on the current ambient light conditions, kudos to that.

    However, my review is 3 star only because the software is really, really buggy on OS X Lion. In order for the ambient light adjustment to work, there is a small utility called iProfiler that runs in the background. This utility (I’ve downloaded the latest version from X-Rite web site which is v1.2.0) has a memory leak problem – the memory consumption grows from 20 Mb to 800 Mb in less than 24 hrs (monitoring utilizing iStats). I have contacted X-Rite technical support and they are aware of this issue and have recommended turning off this feature. As such I cannot utilize this unit to its full capacity, and I am somewhat disappointed – for the premium price I’ve paid for this product, I would expect a premium quality software.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I’ve been using an olde i1 color calibrator for years, and even though the original maker was swallowed by XRite, they have been supporting the no-longer-sold device until now. No joke, XRite sent me an email about upcoming OSX Lion compatibility of that specific software just last week – six years after my purchase! So when I had the opportunity to review the current flagship model of a company that takes care of its customers, I jumped on the opportunity.

    The device is thoughtfully made: Its big lens is protected by a diffuser which swivels off for measuring and also acts as a stand, and there is protective felt so not to scratch your monitor. Definitely an upgrade from the plasticky feel and clip- on protector on my old device! It’s a bit odd that the i1Pro goes on the monitor with its narrower edge rather than flat like the others I know of, so you have to make extra sure that it sits flushly. But it’s no big deal.

    As for documentation: there isn’t any, unless you count the little leaflet which tells you to install the software before plugging in the meter. Speaking of the installer, it puts on Pantone software as well by default, without a word about what it does or whether you need it. It’s some sort of color management which retails for $40, but not pertinent to monitor calibration. I suppose this is one aspect of a “Pro” package, but at the risk of appearing amateurish, I think a manual – if not a tutorial – would have been in order at this price point.

    There were some additional hurdles to get the software to work on my system: on an WinXP machine (I know, not the newest) it would crash upon PC boot, and I had to consult the FAQ and download two updates from XRite’s web site. Also, the generated profiles didn’t “take” initially, which caused various uninstalls of drivers, etc. It took me a few hours to sort out that the Intel custom control panel had to go but “XRGamma” had to remain in the Win Startup folder.

    The software has an Easy Mode which requires only two things: your monitor’s backlight technology (CFL, LED, Wide-Gamut), and your preferred illuminant… yeah, not much help about the latter either, and the default is D65 (“sun at noon”) which seemed too blue to me. I eventually went with D55 (“Viewing booth”). The Advanced Mode lets you do more things like ambient light readings, a monitor uniformity test, and flare compensation (for those glossy displays) – those may be a little over the top for a hobbyist, but I can see how this would be beneficial in a small graphic outfit, weeding out lemon monitors and calibrate imaging work stations to a tee. The license is quite open to such a use by the way: all it states is that you have to own the monitors.

    The process is FAST. My old colorimeter mucked around for at least 15 minutes, but this one is done after two. And I believe it made a much better profile than the old (cheaper) one: pictures look better from the start now, and the color space is larger when viewed at in Microsoft’s color applet.

    In short, the i1Display Pro works well. The lack of documentation is shameful and the software isn’t perfect yet, BUT I think the i1 pro has a serious edge over cheaper colorimeters in speed and accuracy.

    Good product, does what it claims – to organize your receipts, November 1, 2008

    I upgraded from the Neat Receipts 3.0 scanner to the Neat Works 4.0 scanner package recently. I like the Neat Receipts 3.0 scanner, but the upgrade is really worth it.

    For starters the quick scan center with the new version takes less system resources and it allows the user to enter receipts in batches, which is efficient. I was able to scan a pile of 277+ receipts in one night, while watching television. Pretty painless and easy to do without requiring a lot of attention, so you can make good use of downtime while you’re watching TV / relaxing, etc.

    The best part of this is not the physical scanner, it’s the software. It allows me to look up previous receipts in a jiffy, and lets me shred / toss old receipts. The physical scanner is nice too though. It’s definitely not photo quality, but that’s not why I bought this package. The scanner works fairly well / quickly for most receipts, a bit better than the silver version even though they’re supposedly the same hardware. I find with the older version the USB would fail to be recognized by Windows XP, but no such problems with the new version.

    If you want to organize your receipts and keep good records, I highly recommend this package! It’s the one of the few products that actually does what it claims to do. Excellent product.

    Future improvement wishes would be speedier scans, but that is limited by the scanning technology and hardware specifications.

    FYI – yes it will sometimes have difficulty scanning very light receipts, but that is to be expected with a scanner like this. If one expects photo quality scanner this is not the one to buy. A photo quality scanner will take too long to scan receipts. This scanner captures receipts information pretty well but it does not produce a photo replica of the receipt.

    Also, the other reviewer mentioned problems with USB. Quite often that is a problem with Windows, especially on a Windows system that’s been run for quite sometime and with a lot of other accessories installed. I installed this on 3 of my windows XP systems and they all worked fine. If I ever have a problem I would reinstall Windows as Windows tends to get cluttered with hardware profiles and have problems with USB devices.

    Loving it during my first 8 hrs of ownership, March 16, 2009
    By

    (REAL NAME)
      

    The ratio of bad reviews to good reviews here on this NeatWorks scanner was dubious so though I desperately needed a receipt-scanning solution, I really hadn’t taken the plunge until I visited Costco and must’ve been riding a wave of positive-ness because I walked in, wasn’t looking to buy anything, but when I saw only 2 left of this product on the shelf, I took one.

    Got home, inserted the set-up CD as instructed and nothing. I’m running a new (1yr old) Dell with very sufficient hardware/memory running WinXP. But I figure sometimes the CD set-up is wonky, so I ejected then reinserted and it worked; brought up the set-up initialization screen. It asked me to check online for a version newer than what was shipped; I did, and there was. So after 10 minutes of downloading a 200mb file, I was done. Clicked the file, set-up was a snap (took 10-12 minutes) and off I went. Connected the scanner by USB cable and everything worked; no crashing.

    Tested a batch of 15 receipts to see if it could handle the crinkled, faded, potentially illegible imprints on what seemingly is the standard thermal paper being used by all merchants. Alas, this product worked fine; and it worked as promised. Scanned all receipts, and was able to make not only the correct (99% of the time) OCR function for amounts, dates, retailer, and sales tax, it also was able to be relatively correct in judging which sector of retail (general receipt, food, etc.) it should categorize my purchases.

    So the initial test was done; I was pleased. So now I wanted to dig deep and scan roughly 6 weeks of receipts that I’d amassed — roughly 200 receipts. This would’ve really been a test, since half of these receipts were nearly 4-6 weeks old, they were crinkled from being shoved into my pocket or folio while on the road, and some were teeny-tiny receipts like taxi receipts from Manhattan.

    Result? Got through it all, and except for roughly 5 receipts out of my total 197, the scanner and software were both able to recognize most receipt fields and categorize them correctly. Oddly, and I think this is because of the clarity of the receipt vs. software, some receipts were ported into the “Documents” category vs. “Receipts” area. That was remedied easily by dragging each image from “Documents” to “Receipts.”

    “Areas,” you ask? The software gives you 3 distinct areas that it will move your raw scans into; those are RECEIPTS, DOCUMENTS, and BUSINESS CARDS. I’m guessing the software takes ques from the content plus the size of the scan to determine where images should go. Like I said, the software was mostly correct except for a few faded receipts, but when I moved those stray images from “Documents” to “Receipts,” the software kicked-in and was able to read the proper field information (amount, etc.) correctly.

    From these areas, you can then file your raw scans into varying folders that you can create, or into document types if you’d like to export as PDF, etc. It’s pretty simple, and I have never used a product from NeatWorks, so I have no way to compare previous versions with this 4.5.2 version that I’m using.

    I looked at negative reviews and can say that I have neither had the software or hardware cause crashes, reboots, stalls, freezes, or any other degradation of my laptop from working as it normally does.

    Also, I had no real OCR problems with the scanner or software recognizing figures or names. In fact, the only constant problem I had was with drugstore chain “Longs Drugs” which uses only a logo and not typewritten version of its name on receipts, so the software took to recognizing the first item in my receipt as the name, so I had numerous prescription receipts filed as “Hallmark” since I had bought cards with those purchases. What amazes me is the software is able to decipher through all the cr*p that’s listed on receipts; these days, surveys, serial numbers, and other gobbledy-gook are all listed and yet the software was able to filter through that and report the correct field information.

    A couple cautions: 1) Handwritten numbers have never been recognized in any of my scans, 2) Export data to Quicken in groups based on the accounts you use in Quicken.

    As to #1 above, those who have a lot of written-in totals at restaurants for tip, etc., will find this problematic. Every receipt I’d gotten for a meal (which were a lot) I had to correct with the tip included vs. the software recognizing only the subtotal before tip.

    And as to #2 above, I found that importing into Quicken was a snap (as QIF file), but since Quicken will only dump all data in a QIF file into a single account, you need to filter this BEFORE the export. For example, if you use multiple cards like I do for various clients and you keep track of each account separately in Quicken, then you’d better categorize those purchases in NeatWorks accordingly, and…

    Beware – Not Backward Compatible, January 6, 2009
    By 
    stevecat “stevecat” (Seattle, WA USA) –

    (NOTE: see my update on NeatWorks ver 5 below)

    I have been using NeatReceipts for a couple of years now. I generally like the product, but I am now using BOTH the ‘Classic ver 1.5.9″ and the new Ver 4.0 software because NeatWorks broke a covenant with its’ early adopters. They broke two of the cardinal rules of product development (1) never, ever, under any circumstances forget your early customers and their data and (2) never remove vital features from the product.

    First, they “forgot” their “Classic ver 1.5.9” users. Versions of the software from 2.0 up thru the current ver 4.1 cannot recognize or import any of the receipts or documents scanned into the earlier version. I have personally talked to them about this for almost 2 years. At first, in early 2007, they repeatedly stated that they were hard at work on a migration solution. We depended on that statement, telling them how important it was for us to be able to access our archived data – for inventories, insurance and tax records.

    But they finally just abandoned this effort and offered everyone a discount to upgrade to a later version. How is that going to help with restoring archived data? The data and file formats for their .elrec and .eldoc seem fairly simple – a scanned image and some recognized text fields. Why can’t they import those formats like they allow for jpeg and tiff images?

    They offered no acceptable reasons beyond that we are no longer working on that feature and “would you like to upgrade?”. They seem oblivious to the frustrations they have caused a large number of their early customers. We even communicated with Rafi Spero, one of the companies owners. If he couldn’t make it happen, you know they don’t care about you as a customer. BEWARE THIS COMPANY.

    Secondly: The “Classic” version allowed users to create folders and subfolders, etc. This was a fantastic way to organize receipts for cash, various credit cards, checks and debits, by year and then by month. Or to organize a copy of receipts for an inventory by broad categories and then further by store, year or vendor. So the initial features of both subfolders and the ability to copy receipts from yearly tax records to inventory folders was extremely useful and helpful in elimnating paperwork clutter.

    The new ver 4 software does not support nested folders or copying receipts to other folders. Every time you scan a receipt, it goes into a folder. But all folders are on the same level. You can show and hide folders, but this is an extremely clumsy process and causes users a lot of extra work in trying to organize their invoices and receipts. If you want to copy a receipt, you have to scan it AGAIN. How brain-dead is that?

    Bottom Line: This company has proven that, at their convenience, they will ignore or abandon prior versions of the software and remove vital features.

    To fix some of their current short-coming, as mentioned above, it would not surprise me to see them create a new version of their software that is incompatible with what they are selling today.

    DO NOT TRUST them with any vital data that you may need in the future.

    UPDATE: 2-11-2010 – I have been given a preview of the new NeatWorks ver5 software. I don’t know when it will be released but it seems to have (finally) added back in some of the features that went missing with ver 2 and onward. Now they also have a chance to allow for importing old receipts (“.elrec” files) from their “Classic” users. If they do Import “.elrec” files many Classic users will be happy that their data is no longer “orphaned”. I will then change my opinion and rating of NeatWorks and their products because they did admit to these past mistakes, listen and respond to their customers and “the true test of your character is how you respond to those mistakes.”
