5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it! 19 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase
I've been using a dual-monitor setup for quite a while, using a Philips and a Sony LCD. I've never been able to match the colours of the two monitors, and believe me I've tried! The situation got worse when I upgraded to Vista. For some reason ATI's Vista graphics driver made everything look washed out. Out of desperation I decided to get a screen calibrator. I found lots of reviews online for Pantone's Huey and ColorVision's Spyder range. The basic packages don't support dual-monitors so I either needed the Huey Pro or the Spyder 2 Suite. After reading reviews I settled on the Huey Pro, partly because of one glowing review in particular, and also because the device itself is a lot more compact than the Spyder. I have to say, it really worked miracles. Flicking between the corrected and uncorrected modes really shows how unnatural the default colours are. And more importantly, my two LCDs now look ALMOST identical. A lot of people didn't like the automatic room lighting compensation, but I find it quite useful. I'm an avid gamer and none of my games had any problems with it. It can be switched off anyway.

UPDATE: I recently made a move to reclaim my desk-space by selling the 2 19" LCDs and buying a 22" Samsung instead. The default settings on the Samsung gave a horrible blue tint to everything. Whilst it is of course possible to adjust this manually it will never be as accurate as when corrected by proper callibrator. The Huey Pro did an amazing job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well for Me.... 28 Feb 2009
By DF
Verified Purchase
I recently did a photography course where the instructor asked us all to stand at the back of the room. First he asked us if the greys on each of our monitors looked the same (we all had the same Nikon software open) - they didn't. Then he asked us how much we'd spent on camera equipment over the last few years (most of us has spent in excess of £1,000 on DSLR kit). He told us if we were that interested digital photography then we should all at a minimum invest in a monitor calibration device. This was one of the two products he recommended.

I've been using mine for a week now - and am very happy with it. Thankfully my dual monitors weren't that out of sync - but you can also set the software and the sensor to adjust your monitors each minute according to the lighting in the room. Which is very useful if you edit photos at different times of day in different lighting conditions.

Overall, I'm very happy with this item and would recommend it to anyone who is a DSLR photography fan. In particular, if you've ever got digital prints and thought "the colours looked different on my PC" - you should buy this device!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, easy and works. 11 Feb 2009
Worked for me, nice and quick to use with easy installation and well thought out process for calibration. Prints now look the same as on screen and images in Photoshop look the same as the Windows image viewer.

Only reservation is that I have to turn off all lights in the room to prevent an orange colour cast (seems to be an issue with energy saving light bulbs), not a huge problem but worth looking out for.

I don't have any experience with other calibration products but am happy to recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huey Pro - Does exactly what its meant to! 19 May 2008
Before buying this item I did a lot of research on the internet as to which colour correction product would be the best - particularly as I have an aluminium iMac with a glossy screen. I appreciate that these displays are not the best but was keen to get both this and my additional monitor calibrated as best I could for illustration work.

When the product arrived, I gave it a go straight away (make sure your screen has been on for at least 1/2 an hour). I did this in a completely dark room so as to reduce any reflections on the glossy screen. It all seemed to go smoothly and the results were dramatic to say the least! I did end up, however, with the dreaded green cast (as widely reported on other websites).

The program then detected that I had an additional monitor attached. Great news as some websites had sugested that the Huey would not support dual screens on some iMacs (the current iMacs have graphics cards that have two seperate graphics controllers on them). I went through the process again on my second monitor. Once again this resulted in a similar green cast. In fact I was amazed at how similar the colour reproduction on both monitors now are, especially as they are different brands.

Colours are noticably better - not as pale or, conversly, as acidic as was previously.

After a few minutes the green-ish apperance was not at all noticable and I really believe it is simply because before my monitor was too red and takes a while for you to get used to the calibrated image. The colours really are now great!

From reading various websites one would be given the impression that the glossy screens on iMacs can't be calibrated using one of these gadgets. I definitely feel both screens are much better as a result of using this product.

I was persuaded of the need for this, ordered & installed my copy, & would give it top marks for ease of use.

I wondered if I was being dim, though, & had done something wrong when the monitor looked far worse after calibration than before, with a pink colouration very noticeable at the top left hand side of the monitor.

I ran through all the help files, re-installed it 4 or 5 times, with the same results, then Googled hueypro problems. There's a known issue, with 'isolated units' faulty. I've submitted my request for a replacement, but for the moment I don't have a working version of this software so can't yet comment on how it makes my colours sing.

I hope to update this with a more positive later, as I really want this to work brilliantly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monitor Calibration done right
The most bang for the buck in monitor calibration. If you're going to use it on a single monitor, you can buy the non-Pro version. Small and beautiful hardware.
