      In many cases of fitting analytical user-defined functions it does a better job than Origin. Very good support from developer.

      Even when a large set of data is loaded (Laser flash action absorbance), the program can handle pretty well.

      Looks pretty similar to Origin, but has less options for analyses comparing to modern Origin versions. Sometimes fails to open .opj files, usually those containing big number of tables and graphs.

      It is a well serviced, continously improved tool. It allows to import a bunch of file types, (e.g. HDF5 support is very good) and is great for easy construction of templates for automatic analysis and visualization of given datasets
