Pros: This tool comes in a neat fold away package. It is durable. Allows for calibrating your camera on the spot with a gray scale pattern and calibrate your Photos after a shoot at home or in the office with Lightroom.
Cons: the product has an expiration period onces it is opened. Im guessing the calibration screen must faded after time which will cause in accurate color calibration.
Other Thoughts: Buy it its worth it.

Pros: My reason for purchasing this product was to have a couple of my favorite songs on my phone as ring tones and the price seemed right. Finally took my time to install this product. After the install a registration pop up window appeared and I entered all information required however when using the product I receive the error message "On line service communication error" and the software is not usable. NO PROS on this software.
Cons: Software is unusable and I will refrain purchasing any other software that bears the name Broderbund, Encore and Hoyle.

Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements 13 Bundle for Windows & Mac - Full Version
Pros: This does most of what my Adobe CS3 did before Adobe took it away and told me I had to now subscribe for a license. I wil not ever subscribe to such a thing. That is why I purchased this software, no subscribtion.
Cons: It need a uaer manual. Updated software needs this to help the user transfer knowledge easier and seemless. Instead one has to buy a book from another source to get the full potential and use of the update.

Pros: The hardware works, and can profile a narrow set of display technologies. (8 bit per channel IPS panels with either white or RGB LED backlights whose brightnesses are adjusted through constant current drivers (and not PWM)
Cons: The company no longer supports this device, or any of their other ones. This means that no support for additional display technologies will be added. The problem with this is most display technologies used today, will not work with it (hence, the many negative reviews).
They advertise LCD support but do not mention the type (due to them not adding colorimeter correction data for more display types). For example, it has almost no support for TN LCD panels, No support for PWM controlled LED backlights (constant current control backlights only), no support for LED's that are not exactly 6500K (software will try to compensate for the backlight and leave you with a washed out image with horrible contrast ratio, color depth, and very little dynamic range).
These issues can be fixed relatively easily if the company would continue to support their product with new correction data, but it seems that they only release new hardware every few years, but drop support for released products in less than a year (in terms of bug fixes)
Overall, the only displays where this device will work well on, are $400-800+ IPS displays which will use top quality LED's which are constant current controlled, and panel tech along the lines of P-IPS (displays which have likely been precalibrated individually at the factory.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy this unless you can somehow borrow one first to see if it will even work on your displays. And do not hold your breath on waiting for this company to add support for whatever display technology your laptop, or desktop LCD display may be using.
Sadly this is an issue with many companies like this with products focused on the consumer level. Spyder is a little better, but still suffers from some compatibility issues that the company has no interest in fixing. The only products which still get proper support, are the top of the line spectrometers in the $2000+ range.
For the rest of us who do not make a living, calibrating displays, we are stuck with finding a display known to work well with the consumer level display calibrators, or be disappointed when a $170 purchase gets you horrible results.

Pros: 64 bit support seems to be improving. HDR support is nice - different, sometimes welcoming results compared to photomatix. Selection criteria is a bit kludgy though, would just like to drag my auto brackets in, rather than several clicks and navigations.
Cons: With this upgrade, I went from X5 to X7 purely for the content aware fill, but it's little more than an automated clone brush, clumsily grabbing a swathe of nearby pixels, rather than using any kind of fuzzy logic to compute what the fill should look like. It seems pretty much, in function, like the old "scratch remover" function which I think has been around for years.
I played with it a little, but it couldn't take power lines out from a sky, or fill grassy areas without obviously cloning big chunks of surrounding grass (repeat anomalies make cloning obvious)
Do not like the way that the smart fix and other photo edit functions are now the main window, rather than an additional window popup where I could keep the original on another monitor - dual monitor menu setting now just forces the organize window, rather than editor functions.
Other Thoughts: I've been using PSP since the early nineties, pre WWW in-fact, from when I ran a bulletin board.
