Not what we were hoping for

Excerpt: After using this product our monitor colors and brightness were horrible and were a much worse match for our printer than what we started with. We had planned to calibrate three monitors but stopped after the first. We did this during the week between Christmas and New Years when there was no support whatsoever by the company - they were simply closed.
Excerpt: I have a triple monitor setup and tried every possible way to setup calibration. I tried the multi monitor sync and configuring them independently. The 3 monitors are so different that I might as well have done it by myself. I ran it 6 times for each monitor and every single time it came out with a different result. Monitors were always either too blue or too green, and never looked correct for all 3.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Not Accurate, Poor Mult Screen Support
Excerpt: I purchased this product to try to get my monitors to match my photos. I calibrated my three monitors - and yes I use three monitors all the time. When I was done they all looked different. So I Tried the Studio Match. The first two ended up similar but my main screen was darker. But when I tried to match the third monitor the program froze with an error message. I tried to Studio Match from the beginning and the same thing happened.
Excerpt: I bought it to do a professional calibration in all of my monitors and it didn't work in any of them. Try it on my iMac and it was complicated to use and after I finish using it, it got worse than the standard Mac calibration. I tried to do some tutorial and watch some videos online to learn more and even then couldn't make it work.
Cons: Lacks Adjustability, Large Footprint, Unreliable performance
