    Has anyone had the chance to use either/both of these? If so, what did you think of it/them? Just trying to see if one has a bit of an edge over the other. Thanks.

    I have the Spyder2, it works well, but Colorvision's customer service annoyed me quite a bit. Did you look at the EyeOne? Based on my experience with Colorvisions employees, I'd go for the EyeOne if I had it to do again.

    Anyone have anything to add? I used a Huey & I really like it but I know nothing about alternatives. I want to buy one but I would like some reviews. Can anyone share their experience? Easy of use, price, color correctness? Thanks in advance.

    I have the spyder2 from colorvision as well. I'm pretty happy with it. Very easy to use, just plug it in, slap it on the monitor, and let it do it's thing. Go have a smoke and come back to a spankin freshly calibrated monitor. Works well for me.

    I have no experience with any of these, but I read that the with the Huey you can leave it hooked up to your computer sitting in its dock after you have calibrated the monitor and it will make adjustments based on the ambient light in the room.

    Hope this helps.

    I have Huey. Simple, quick and effective. Not much to it.
