You'll probably find that the software licence prevents the software being installed on more than the owner's computers; meaning that companies may not be able to legally hire them out.

In addition as it needs redoing every month or so (or even daily for critical work) and they are not that expensive anyway for the entry level models you may as well 'bite the bullet' and buy one (IMHO).

You would be better buying your own as acurate monitor calibration isn't just a one off thing. A monitor is best re-calibrated on a regular basis, whether that's on a weekly or monthly basis depends on your screen and how demanding your requiremnts.
I find once a month to be fine.

EyeOne Display 2 Although you could probably find it cheaper by doing a Google search.

Might be worth putting a wanted ad in the classifieds. Only costs 1 or you get 10 free adverts if you're an E2 member.

Spyder2express isn't very expensive, and works well.

I've had one of the first versions of the Pantone Huey from it's original release and it's been excellent and is aimed at people on a budget.

Just checking on ebay, there are two available on a bidding basis, with quite a few being sold as 'buy it now' items.

It's simple to use and gives good results.

Ive got a Huey Pro and works a treat, any of the cheaper ones will do a very good job and will be much better than an uncalibrated screen - money well spent
