It's not too bad. Obviously not as good as proper 3rd party calibration.

The outcome is largely dependant on how well your eyes 'match' what is being put on screen.

You really need a colorimeter (i.e., additional hardware) to get good matching. What MS provides is mainly better than nothing.

If it's something that matters to you for photos, etc., I'd look into something like a Spyder2 at the least.
