Anyone used the Gretagmacbeth monitor Display Calibrator before? or AKA Huey.
In short, it's not a good value for $.

Is the latest software improve the Huey calibration quality? Anyone tried it and can confirm?Originally Posted by Simon
1st, i use it on lcd, yellow cast.
update the software.
calibrate again with still yellow cast.
than i use it on crt (after the software update), still got yellow cast.
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
But I would say it's slightly improved after the software upgrade.
Still not woth it though.

I've seen lots of users complaining about the yellow cast but none have actually commented on the accuracy of the print out which is one of the main aims of monitor calibration (other than standardisation across platforms)
i just got a gretag huey and tried to calibrate my mac ibook. no prob installing the s/w but i kept getting a error msg that says the huey can't get gd reading. it lists possible prob eg wrong monitor type (either LCD or CRT), hardware not plugged in etc.
i tried it on 2 macs but still got the same error msg. then i tried on windows and it worked. tried updating the s/w too but prob still persists.
anyone encountered this prob b4? or any advice? i bought the huey bec it can calibrate both my mac and windows machines....sigh.
ps: i also have a colorplus but it is only for windows. tried installing another s/w and also emailed the support but was informed colorplus only supports windows. that's why i got the huey.
thxs in advance.
