Any particular reason ? From the web sites, there's no indication
that interface information is available for these instruments.
The "ColorVision PrintFIX" is certainly not comparable to
a spectrometer (As I understand it, it's a modified RGB scanner.)
Experience in the past (as well as fundamental technical issues)
also don't paint LED based spectrometers in a good light either
(Of course they tend to be more affordable instruments.)
The Datacolor products appear to be spot reading only, not
suitable for reading thousands of patches in a chart.
It's hard to know where the Avantes AvaMouse (aka SpectroCam)
stands. It had a reputation of being a little temperamental
in the past, and the Xenon light source seems to be of mixed benefit.
There doesn't seem to be anything comparable to the i0 on offer
to work with it, and little sign of new product development.
A lot of these instruments can be very useful, but generally
seem to be "second tier" compared to Xrite and GMB.
