Its one thing to get a close agreement between instruments of different makes/models on standard tiles/cards, but another thing to get close agreement on real world substrates. I did a bit on in house testing on our spectros (938s, 939s, DTP-41, multiple i1s, Spectroscan, etc) and close agreement on one substrate did not necessarily mean close agreement on another, presumably due to a variety of factors (paper type, gloss, OB content, instrument configuration (Illuminant, sensor, etc). Now I simply assume that if the substrate changes, so to will the agreement of the instruments measuring them, and if close agreement on a particular substrate is critical, I recommend identical make/model/rev level, and a grain of salt.
