Datacolor ColorReader Reviews

Neat Tool, Limited Ability

By Mike
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2020-03-27

Tool is touted as having a QA function (the reason I purchased it), but the tolerance for that function is locked... so unless you want to use their default tolerance value, everything above it will fail, even if it meets our criteria for color matching. Tech support people unhelpful in addressing this or trying to find a solution - just said no, you can't change it. Neat toy, but unfortunately a $250 neat toy paperweight now.
