We are using the Color Vision Recorder as an extra safety assessment in an international randomized, controlled, clinical trial.  The software is very user-friendly and provides us with all the data we need.  Since we do no longer have to calculate the error scores manually, it saves us a lot of time compared to the use of traditional D15 discs and worksheets.
