User Comments

It is completely safe, and if you use a ColorEdge monitor, you should keep it running. It is a colour adjustment software specifically for the ColorEdge monitors. While it is not necessary to keep, it is worth having installed. Seeing as you bought an extremely expensive monitor, it is recommended that you make it worth it's money by calibrating it properly.
