Hope this helps.
Yes! VERY helpful and informative. Thank you for your reply Rick.
Didn't know about the rebates. That makes things a little more tempting!
Your current i1Pro with UV filter could be filtering out some of the dynamic range. I seem to recall that Epson Premium Glossy Photo has low UV content, so you really shouldn't need a UV filtered measurement with this media.
I'm a little surprised with your comment about the Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper having low UV content.
(By using the term UV content does that mean the same as having OBA's?)
The reason for the surprise is because I actually bought the original i1Extreme package from Chromix, with you as the sales rep helping me, back in 2010.
(excellent service and advice by the way!)
I was using the same paper back then as well and together we actually based our decision on the i1Pro with UV cut.
Am I using the correct combo of paper and spectro?
So far my results have been better than the Epson supplied profiles.
(at least from what I could see in the darkest blacks as an example)
