spyder 2 pro
It's on the Santa list for me
things look really blue.
well, after about 5 minutes, my eyes have adjusted, it still looks just a hair on the cool side, but its probably just because I was used to it being too warm.
i'm going to trust this thing and leave it.
i tried twice, and it looks the same both times i guess thats a good sign.
input from people who use these alot?
i have like 4 huey basics. I keep complaining and they just send me new ones I think I want to get a better one. I always get a blue tint after calibration and not a slight tint, but a dominant tint
1) sell all 4 on ebay
2) buy a better one
Which number are you calling btw? I need to call and complain about this, too.
You can go to www.pantone.com and submit a support question which is what I did the first two times. Or you can just call this guy below. I talked to him on the phone, pretty nice and it feels better talked to a person than going through the support system on their website

Thats probably what Im going to do. I gave 2 away and going to sell the other two.
Thanks man. I'm gonna call after class.
I wants :/
can you calibrate 2 monitors with that model?
I get the express, but downloaded the pro software. I still don't trust it. The results were way warm with the express, and the results vary fairly widely depending on what "target" I select
Me too. I just set mine to control everything because I'm lazy
Results have been good.
So what is the verdict on these? You get what you pay for? Are there any that have little to no complaints?
sucks if you post photos to the net. you're computer will see them right, but everyother monitor on the planet which isn't calibrated it'll look different.
if you're doing prints, i'd say go for it.
my huey seems to work pretty darn well.
Send me one?
trade for your 24-70
how much was that thing?
it's the newspaper photo staff's whore. we pass it around
dude said it was $75 with student discount, originally like 250 or so I think, thats what he said, I'm not sure tho.
I dont know if you are talking to me, but I paid around $70 shipped for the huey basic. Im going to sell 2 of them and buy the spyder 3 or one of the xrites
well, whore it on down this way... I'll send it back.
