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.
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.
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!
