It especially carved its own place in the Korean digital device market with unprecedented benefits by removing the annual fee, which was quite a burden on many clinicians using foreign devices, and offering software update free of charge.
The main reasons why ‘i500’ has become a hot issue is because of its excellent product performance and reasonable price of approximately 60% of existing products in the market.

Therefore, it can improve the fit of a prosthesis and show soft tissues, scale and teeth with precise color scan images. According to a thesis published in ADA Professional Product Review 2015, it is proved that it has an excellent degree of precision based on a single crown, 4.2㎛(±0.49㎛).
The scan software provided with ‘i500’ is convenient as it is user-friendly and intuitive. Users can save time in scanning through intuitive UI and concentrate more on treating the patients. Furthermore, it provides the function of automatically aligning the occlusion with a simple bite scan and calculate an upper and lower occlusal relation quickly and draws its result as a color map.
