I don't own i1D so I can't compare, but I've asked here and there and
it looks like Spyder3 and i1D are totally comparable. I bought my
Spyder for half the price of i1D so it was no brainer. 
When it goes to spectro vs colorimeters - after calibration
colorimeter should not be worse than spectro for a particular
display/colorimeter combination. Of course accuracy of cheap
colorimeters may suffer with filter aging, but for my needs it will be
enough to check it once a year against reference instrument.
best regards,
