    Ok, so after the calibration, it shows the final window of before/after. There was no difference.

    hahaha really? made a difference on my screen, but it was already pretty close by using the squint method.

    There is software 1.4 on their website, mine was shipped with 1.0 (which I havent tried). Also the corny picture at the end of the software isnt a very good gauge.

    Yeah, I just updated mine to 1.4, as it too came with the 1.0 software.

    I think it was like $300. Works great, never tried the huey and it wasn't really available when I bought it.

    understatement. they do it all for you.


    huey is full auto. will do 2x connected monitors if you set them to the primary screen.

    spyder2express is pretty much the same, will only do one screen unless you tweak the profile names manually with colorsync.

    the spyder2 pros allow manual calibration, 2 monitors and a few extra features i believe.

    The Huey is extremely simple to use. The program tells you what to do.
