4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job for me May 22 2006
By JLP - Published on Amazon.com
I use my computer for a lot of photography. I have an analog View Sonic 17" LCD screen. Since I was receiving print results from an online print service where the contrast and colors were different than what I had expected I purchased this affordable product. I found it very easy to set up on my PC taking up a USB port. After installing the software, you are prompted to calibrate the device with the monitor which takes about 5 minutes. There after the device sits in its cradle near your monitor measuring the ambient light every minute or an interval you can select to readjust the screen. After two weeks the software will prompt you to recalibrate. I've owned the product for nearly three months and I've been satisfied. It didn't screw up my monitor as I've heard about with other products. I have it set for Webbrowsing-Photo editing but you can set it for games. Quite honestly I have only tried it with one game and that it Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 and sometimes the contrast and colors are off (hence the 4 stars only.) Overall for my photo editing, it is a great little product at an affordable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huey -- Easy to Use and Affordable March 15 2006
By Liz F. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had been planning on purchasing a color correction system for my computer for some time, but until Pantone Huey was released, I had not been able to find an affordable yet accurate colorimeter. For under $100, you can't beat this simple & sophisticated device.

I was a little apprehensive of ordering a product so newly released, but I put my worries aside and purchased Huey, since it was less than half the price of the other models I was considering. Huey has lived up to my expectations, and was worth the investment. It has been easy to use: setup took less than five minutes, the directions are clear and concise, and the program walks you through each step onscreen.

Huey sits next to my monitor, unobtrusively monitoring ambient (room) light and taking any changes into account (this feature can be disabled easily). The ambient light adjustment was a huge selling point for me -- other models offering this option were upwards of $200.

While I can't make detailed adjustments of the color temperature, Huey's program allows you to select varying color settings based on whether you plan to edit photos, play computer games, or browse the web. Huey also allows you to compare your "before" and "after" monitor calibrations. I think you will be suprised at how much better it makes your screen look -- I know I was.

I am more than satisfied with my investment, as Huey's simplicity and automation has saved me time and effort while providing me with a color corrected monitor that I can trust to be accurate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works Fine - I Think! July 25 2006
By W. Frank Davis - Published on Amazon.com
First of all I have to compliment Amazon as the Huey I ordered arrived really fast despite my cheap Standard Shipping!

The Huey was very easy to setup and I had created my first profile within about 15 minutes.The reason for my ambivalent review title is that I think it works as advertisied but I have not tested it with my printer yet on any high-quality photos or graphics. The little suction cups on it which are how you adhere it to the LCD screen, are a liitle weak so you have to be very careful with how much pressure you put on your screen. It doesn't appear as if it has damaged either of my monitors but you want to be very careful. I don't think you get as good a calibration if it is just hanging by its cable in front of the screen.

I can say that the color of my monitor was changed significantly over the manual methods I had used before. The colors were less vibrant on-screen as I evidently was using too much brightness and contrast. I have two 19" monitors and the first one (my main graphics screen) didn't look as good as my secondary screen until I had adjusted for the second time a week later. Now it appears very solid and I believe the colors are much closer to being true than my manual calibrations.

The Huey runs constantly on my desktop and adjusts the screen for the ambient light every minute which is a good feature as I get much brighter light in the afternoon (lots of glass on my office's south wall).

You can use it for two monitors but you will have to switch your primary monitor in your computers display setup in order to calibrate the second monitor and then switch it back when you are through. The automatic adjustment feature will only work on one monitor at a time which is why I use my highest quality monitor as my primary and use the secondary primarliy for web surfing and overflow space for PhotoShop and Illustrator palletes. If you want to be able to calibrate two monitors at once you will need to upgrade and spend more bucks but as this is my first foray into color calibration, I can say I am satsified thus far with the Huey.

As I use it for commercial printing jobs and high-color local output I will be more able to say definitively that it is the real deal but for the money I don't think you can go wrong with the Huey.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a difference! May 6 2007
By Kevin D. Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I spent years being frustrated with the difference between the colors I was seeing on my screen, and the colors that were output by my printer. I tried manual calibration products that depended on my eyes to make the adjustments, but as I found out when I first used the Huey my vision is not nearly as accurate as I would like to believe.

I purchased the Huey about 3 months ago. Setup was extremely simple. You just install the software, plug the Huey in to a USB port and follow the onscreen instructions. After calibrating my monitor with Huey, the colors looked very strange to me. This wasn't a problem with the calibration, it was a problem with my perception. After color correcting a few photos in Photoshop CS2 and then printing them on my Canon Pixma Pro 9000, I was amazed! The colors that were printed matched those onscreen perfectly!

I highly recommend this product. It is unbeatable at the price. As a side note, you will still need to make sure that your computer and printer are speaking the same language (i.e. correct color space and ICC profile) to get accurate results, but the Huey takes the guess work out of the process. Finally, what I see is what I get!

5.0 out of 5 stars It DOES work Feb. 21 2007
By Learn Richly - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was initially disappointed by the yellowness of the whites produced by the Huey, but then I realized my EYES were in need of calibration. I figured out that after a while, you can go back to "uncorrected" and the pre-calibration view then looks too blue. To really test this, I got some test pattern prints from the web and printed them at a good lab and compared them to my monitor. Yup, the thing works: the colors matched. I don't know why so many folks are giving it 1 star--do they have a defective unit or are they possibly doing something wrong? At any rate, you have to get over the initial shock because you've been using an uncalibrated display for so long. With the extremely small size, quick calibration (much faster than a spyder) and nifty ambient light measurement capabilities, there is no better product under a hundred bucks. I've had mine for about six months and take it back and forth between work and home--it barely takes up any room in my bag. The calibration routine is so quick that I can edit images on my lunch hour and the setup doesn't take a big chunk of the time. If I had to go through a lengthy calibration routine, this would be a deal breaker.
