    the only thing that looks pure white to me now is my mouse pointer.
    When I first changed the color temperature of my monitor to warm (6500'K), I had quite a hard time getting used to the yellowish cast. However, after a week or two, my brain began to get used to it.

    My advice is to just trust the calibrator and let your brain adjust itself. Don't worry too much.

    yup, i have to agree we'll all have to get our brains adjusted also heh =p esp if our original settings were quite off. i'm using the warm setting for now also and i have the same yellowish cast.

    Just an update for you guys who are interested in the calibrator. I wrote an email to the people at Gretag Macbeth asking about the product. In their reply, they stated that the
    Cirrus calibrator is newly developed product for a specific dealer and exclusive to our region only. However, it's not designed for high end professional uses and is targeted towards the general consumer.

    In future, they can be found bundled with other 3rd party products too. It is not yet available for sale through the Gretag Macbeth website or any of their website.

    Hopefully, they will start providing support for the calibrator soon.

    Prismatic is right about the reply from GMB. This is a new product which we have been working with GMB and made it exclusively available through Canon Singapore first. This calibrator is targeted at the consumer to prosumer audiance where the cost of it is more comfortable to the pocket.

    MO = Mass Order

    Just checked on Adorama's website. Huey costs USD74.75 (with shipping cost of USD35.50 if only buying one unit of Huey. Shipping costs slightly increases to USD39 if buying ten units of Huey). Thus, assuming the current exchange rate of around 1.6326 and a 2% bank charge, without a MO, the unit can be bought from USA at around $185. (No GST if less than $500?)

    Only worry is that the exchange rate seems to be going up at the moment.

    Sorry to post a totally noob question but...

    to calibrate my monitor / LCD screen, do I need to adjust the screen's brightness &/or contrast level... cos my notebook strangely comes with a contrast control but not a brightness control.

    I've tried the Cirrus on my notebook but it doesn't work at all (eg. no change in colours, contrast).

    For those interested in a calibrator, I am running a MO here at http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=176295 for the Colorvision Spyder2PRO which is a higher end model.

    You can also see the Macworld comparison review between the ColorVision's Spyder2PRO Studio with Gretag Macbeth's Eye-One Display 2 & Monaco's OptixXR Pro here http://www.macworld.com/2005/03/revi...ator/index.php

    If you really want the Huey, PM me and I will check. It should be less than S$185

    If it's a new notebook acquired recently and of a reputable brand, the manufacturer may have already put in an accurate profile.
