or correction process takes about 3 minutes and the steps are easy to follow from the on screen display. It is best that the user works in a room with constant light source such as fluorescent or tungsten light source, whenever the color temperature changes so would how we perceive the colors on the monitor. Otherwise, "huey" provides the option to constantly monitor color temperature changes and adjust accordingly when the unit is placed next to the monitor.
After the software is installed, let's go through the process below;Click to enlarge
Huey measures the color temperature in the room first, it will prompt the location to place the "huey" onto the screen.
Place the "huey" as shown on the screen and slightly pushed the unit onto the screen so that the suction cups will do their job making sure to follow the orientation indicates on the screen. Click "next', the unit will measure YRed, Green, Grey, Blue and White lights emitting from the display. When the process is complete, your choice to allow "huey" to monitor and adjust continuously, otherwise the sensor shuts off.
Interesting choice of options here; at the end "huey" asks your preference of color. In this case, I picked "Graphic Design and Video Editing".Comparison:

For PC hardware enthusiasts, the following is for you; see the difference?
I found using "huey" on my Gateway laptop a bit tricky for two reasons. The suction cups were unable to keep it stay on the "shiny" display surface. I have to damp the suction cups a bit to make the unit stick. The outcome of the calibration returned a very "warm" color under tungsten light (the same condition I tested it on two standard 20" displays). I retested it in daylight, still with window shade down and the result was much better.
