Pantone hueyPRO Review
The diminutive Pantone hueyPRO has grown in stature significantly since its first release, benefiting from a software overhaul. Placed in its desktop cradle with LED display facing you, the pen-like device attempts to read ambient light to prepare for calibration. Following an onscreen prompt to adjust contrast and brightness settings, the Pantone hueyPRO is held in place on your monitor by suction cups to continue the process.
After a brief calibration process measuring 29 different colour patches, you can view the before and after by simply switching between ‘Show corrected’ and ‘Show uncorrected’. Results are very much in the eye of the beholder here and some inconsistencies occasionally creep in due to false or muddled ambient light readings.
That said, you only need to run the calibration process again to ensure a better reading and save the results accordingly. Support for multiple monitors is a bonus, while you can set reminders to recalibrate your display regularly.
