I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

I wonder if woot will put me on probation for this signature...

I guess we'll find out.

If you're in the biz or have lots of toys, this is a great grab. It's one of those things that's not for everyone, but those who use it use it everywhere.

Does anyone know if this will work on projectors?

I have a nice HD Projector, and I want to ensure I am getting the right colors. The difference with an LCD and the projector well the screen is 120" and its on a wall.

I own one of these. Unfortunately, mine is/was one of the models affected by a serious red-shift. Everything calibrated would appear substantially more red-tinted than if performed by another device. Apparently, this was also a very large-scale issue, as the Amazon reviews are packed with reports while pantone even issued a Serial Number-based replacement option.

Otherwise, it worked rather well. I started off by running with ambient light sensing enabled, but switched it off after the software started messing up during odd lighting conditions.

At this price, it's a decent calibrator. Anything more is overpaying.

Will this work for HDTV's if you use it as a monitor? I mean is it comparable to the HDTV calibrating kits?

One use would be for people who are color adjusting photos. This helps you see the most accurate colors based on ambient lighting, etc.

This is a decent alternative to the Spyder series of calibration tools.

This model on Woot is pretty good for the price. What this stuff does is set the color, tint, brightness, etc to be as exact as it should be.

I have a Pantone Huey and love it. I've not used any other color correction devices so I can't really compare it, but it works great, though unfortunately only for one of my 2 monitors from what I can figure out.

Will it do the calibrating for me? I find this kind of useless if it would not.
Does it support 64 bit versions of windows? That is all I run.

Unlikely. All monitor calibrators I've used are designed for transmitted light (ie. directly from the monitor), not reflected. There are calibrators for reflected light (ie. off of paper) like the X-Rite series, but I've never heard of using them on wall.

Won't work on projectors, unfortunately.

Froglegz wrote:will it do plasma?



If you use a plasma screen as a monitor, it'll probably work just fine. As far as standalone functionality, no.


Addressing a concern some people seem to be bringing up: What is this?

It's a display calibrator. The idea is that one would use this device to calibrate/configure a monitor to display accurate color, so that you can be sure what you are seeing on one screen is accurately representing what its creator saw. Devices like this are critical for an accurate design workflow.

If it only works half the time, that's really not so "great", is it??

I've been using the Huey Pro for about a year on MacBook & iMac. It's easy to use & has saved me a pile of expensive printer paper & ink by calibrating the screen so it is more likely to resemble my final prints. This is the low-end device - it can't build printer profiles (get the pricier ColorMunki if you need that.) But Huey does a surprisingly good job and this is a very good price. I'd go for it if I didn't have one already.

This would also be used for people in the printing business... if you're using pantone colours (ink on press) it will help you see what you're actually going to get when you print your job. I'm sitll thinking of getting one but at $39 I doubt this will be too pro.

if you work with photoshop this device, or another of its type, is absolutely necessary.

google "color management" to get an idea of why you need calibration.

If you are a graphic artist or photographer this is nothing short of a necessity. I use one at least weekly.
