When I Color Correct a video and export it to another computer. Somehow the contrast and saturation went up. So I'm wondering what should I do to calibrate my monitor. I have been hearing about the huey and also spyder 3. I have a laptop btw

You can calibrate your laptop screen, but for accurate color correction work you need an external reference monitor (they don't come cheap). If you don't have the funds for it, try connecting a LCD/LED tv to have a second reference besides the laptop screen.

The XRite EyeOne Display 2 is a good calibration device, I like to use BasICColor Display software with it. I don't like the spyder and never used the huey.

Your Laptop *will never* be calibrated correctly, and the laptop screen should not be used for color correcting. -- you really need a good quality external monitor, calibrated with an XRite i1 for color critical work.

That's the one - it comes with simple bundled software, but IMO "BasICColor Display" is a much better application for accurate calibration and profiling.
