Hmmm... this link have better interface than what i've got. Can set setting for different usage, like gaming, web browsing, garphic and many more.... How come mine show lesser setting? Only neutral, warm and cool and low mid and high contrast... Anyone who uses huey have the same basic (lesser) setting than what you've seen on this link? Or am I the only one here.

me too.

and the gamma seem to be struck at 1.8 instead of the recommended 2.2

anyway the profile is quite close, except that the yellow is slightly "blown" on the screen than on my printout.

This is really frustrating... all of us tends to have the yellow/orange/warm colour cast; I'm assuming we all chose the default 'neutral' setting.

Unless of course, we were all blinded (so used to) by our previous (bright) 'white' settings!
Can some experts enlighten us please ?

I am also having only the settings that you encounter. Does this only happens to XP users? :confused:

Indeeed the yellow cast appears to be wrong for me. I though white should look white instead of yellow. Just like in Microword Word, we do expect to see white sheet instead of yellowish sheet.

Dun tell me our eyes are playing tricks on me? And that we cant differiate white? Very very strange.

There is no comprehensive manual included unfortunately. Any one can tell me which is supposed to the correct mode to achieve faithful hard copy printing (Warm, neutral or Cool??)

Hmmm. if you means the huey and spyder give different results, that means something is wrong then? I thought using any calibrators should give the same reference tone? Is that a reference?
