I'd been frustrated at all efforts to get my two monitors (LCD panels) calibrated anywhere near each OTHER, let alone to any true color correction. A peer recommended the Huey Pro, I was somewhat skeptical having worked with much more expensive and elaborate calibrators before. The Huey Pro installed very quickly, and with the USB connection and wizard-based basic setup I was done in less than ten minutes. My displays match, and the color matches my prints now. Well worth the money!

Out of the box the Pantone Huey is a great product. In just a couple of minutes you can get your monitor looking more like it should. The interface is very easy to use, simple with good supporting instructions. While it supports multiple monitors, I found it a little tricky to get consistency between my Dell laptop and a couple of Dell LCD's. What's strange is that the newer lcd seems to take a long time to 'warm up' and after its been on awhile there is a noticeable color shift. The instructions tell you to leave your monitor on for 30 minutes prior to calibration, but apparently mine needs even longer. An additional note: When you start using the monitor immediately after you've calibrated it, you may sense that the colors are wrong. Whats really happening is that your eyes have adjust to the bad colors, and need to readjust for the correct ones. This went away after just a couple of hours use. Overall it works exactly like it should, and you can use the included Pantone process color cards to confirm. At under $100 I think this is an excellent tool for developers, photographers, and anyone working with color.

Good, Inexpensive Calibration (While It Worked)

on 7/1/2008

Our Huey Pro worked great for over a year. Then, all of a sudden, calibrations started leaving the screen a vivid pink color. I searched Pantone's support site (search for color cast) and found that they are aware that some units have this problem and are replacing them. You just open a ticket, include your serial number, some system info and your address, and they will send you a new unit. The bad news is that they are out of stock right now and don't expect to have them in stock until the end of July 2008. So we'll have to wait. I know this because I called their support number and after pressing only one number to get to support, an actual person answered the phone (with no hold - I know - shocking, isn't it?) and told me the status in a very frank and honest manner. So even though ours is currently broken, I still give the product 4 stars because it's much more affordable than any other color calibration system I've seen and (when it was working) it did the job (at least all I needed). And now that we're having a problem, they are going to replace the unit with no hassles regarding warranty periods, etc. Read More

Features

Multiple monitor calibration increases color fidelity from monitor-to-monitor-to-print.
New color patches added to the calibration process for precision accuracy.
Advanced Help built-in provides step-by-step instructions through calibration and beyond.
User-defined Whitepoint and Gamma combinations provide substantial control over the calibration and output matching.
