    Is it the $89 small one? That one is pretty inaccurate most of the time I think.

    are you using the gretagmacbeth software or the one from Pantone for Huey... they should be the same but i found that the Pantone one seems to work better

    Did you remove the adobe gamma from startup? dat caused me problems last time. Now its ok, only thing is that its slightly warmer. Maybe not too used to it, but i guess its more accurate like dat.

    wa!


    27" LCD!!!

    fierce leh!!!

    u should print out ur works and see if the color cast is still there. at least u'll know whether it is the 27" LCD monitor's problem that suffers from the problem or that there's no problem at all.

    juz go to ur startup and see whether you have adobe gamma there. If its there, juz right click and delete/remove it. Reboot and try again. Oh yeah...tink the latest version is 1.05. Use that instead.

    Are you using the Huey ? I wouldn't recommend it for calibration at all as it is not very good - take a look here - http://www.behardware.com/articles/6...-0-to-100.html

    Neither would I recommend the Spyder products.

    A pretty decent one is the eyeOne2 (or the older eyeOne) from gretagmacbeth or the xrite product.
