Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Why do photographs sometimes not appear onscreen with the vibrancy of how the scene was shot? Why does color vary from monitor to monitor? The fact is, all monitors (yes, both new and old) display color differently. But with Eye–One Display LT, you can achieve accurate onscreen color just like the pros – without having to become a pro. Eye–One Display LT calibrates your monitor and adjusts the color onscreen, so your images remain true. Now you don’t have to make excuses for poor color; your work can speak for itself.

Digital designs demand accurate on-screen colors. Even the most advanced monitors require adjustment for different lighting conditions and environments to maximize their performance. Calibrating your display lets you control what you see on your monitor and ensures colors are accurate and consistent day-to-day, image-to-image, or on multiple systems for print, Web or video output.

Compatible with all Windows and Macintosh operating systems except MAC OS10.7 Lion (Lion Compatibility coming 9/2011)

I am REALLY regretting getting this piece of junk!
T. Iverson
The software that comes with this product is very simple to use, and I think for beginners its a lot easier to start of with this LT version.

Another thing I noticed was that it was much easier to calibrate the CRT's than either the LCD or the laptop using either eyeball method.

Recently, I've read several books about Photoshop CS2 and digital photography and the general consensus of the authors relating to color management is that calibrating one's display device is essential. The overriding recommendation is to use hardware calibration (colorimeter) or, at the very least, an eyeball method (Adobe Gamma, QuickGamma).

Mindful of this information, I calibrated my home CRT, LCD and laptop and my work CRT with free a software program (QuickGamma) that was recommended by several digital camera and Photoshop sites. Previous to this I had used Adobe Gamma but I quickly found that QuickGamma produced superior results. Another thing I noticed was that it was much easier to calibrate the CRT's than either the LCD or the laptop using either eyeball method. When I printed photographs with my home inkjet there seemed to be a pretty good match between the CRT display and output but when I moved pictures from different computers there were noticeable shifts.

With my interest piqued, I decided to purchase a hardware calibrator the Eye-One Display LT (Light?) to see if I could match images between displays and to determine if I could achieve a closer color match between my printer and displayed image.

The Eye-One was easy to use and set up on all displays once I got the hang of the wizard that explains each step. As other reviewers have mentioned a software update is available from Pantone's site and this adds some functionality to the software and is a recommended update. Depending on your displays capabilities the Eye-One allows the user to optimize the, brightness, contrast, color temp, gamma, and RGB set points and then creates a custom profile for your display.

I own the Eye-One and owned its nominal predecessor, the SpyderPro. No question; the Eye-One if vastly superior. When I have it engaged and a am using an up-to-date profile, my prints match my screen essentially every time, first time. [yes, calibrating every few weeks is useful if not necessary] It is sometimes hard to see the actual change in colors just looking at the screen (and if your screen is far out of calibration, it is a painful adjustment to get used to the calibrated ones -- for half an hour or so). The latest version of the software is very good indeed; the first one was pretty rough around the edges.

It clearly shows just how bad "eyeball-based" calibration programs are.

A shortcoming: I wish they had used to photometer in the sensor head to monitor ambient light the same way the Huey ($69.95) does, but the Eye-One gives you a better profile. The next version up is better, but for anybody who doesn't have to prepare copy for commercial publication, the LT offers all the control you'll need!

Used this device to calibrate a Dell LCD monitor. The unit comes with a DVD instructional video which explains step by step how to calibrate your monitor. The DVD needs to be updated to reflect the newer model ,however as there is an unnecessary step in on the DVD that may lead to confusion (you do not have to place the Eye-One on a black surface to calibrate it). I emailed tech support on this and they promptly emailed back a satisfactory answer to my question. You can also use this on as many monitors as you like. The whole process takes about 15 minutes (but warm up your monitor for 30 minutes prior).

This unit and its brothers are the standard for calibration. Do a search on the internet and you can confirm this. I have also seen the Eye One used to calibrate an LCD HDTV, but have not tried this myself.

My photographs when printed professionally seem very consistent to what I see on my monitor. I could not be assured of this before calibration.

Good product.

The Eye-One LT can become an Eye-One Display 2 through a firmware update which then unlocks additional software features. The firmware update costs around double the price difference between the LT and the Display 2. If you are a casual user wanting to go cheap, the Eye-One LT is for you. If you're a tweaker, save yourself time and money and buy the Eye-One Display 2.

With that said, the tool worked quickly and easily on my HP LP2475W, MacBook Pro, and Dell D620. The picture quality was dramatically improved. The best picture on the MacBook Pro did come after upgrading to the Display 2 so that I could use the native color temperature of the MBP. It also allows calibration of brightness.

In my opinion, it was worth it. Some of my older pictures look better than ever and now I know that what I'm seeing on the screen is what it's supposed to look like.

This is a great meter. I use it with the free downloadable software HCFR. I fully calibrated my Epson Home Cinema 1080UB projector with this, and the picture is stunning, just stunning. There is a fantastic write-up on how to calibrate your TV or projector here:

[...]

It was also very plug and play to calibrate my LCD computer monitor. I used the supplied software to calibrate the computer monitor and it made a nice profile for the monitor that loads everytime the computer starts up. Very nice.
