I know RSP is very popular among folks on these forums. Some of the reviews I've read have been critical of RSP's color accuracy. Are you using the Color Engine plug (which costs an additional $59), and does this help?

I think they are.

You shouldnt have to buy upgrades for something to work right IMO.

I agree. RSP is $59.95, and Color Engine takes the price to $109.95. I suppose I'm wondering if there is any point at all to RSP without Color Engine. It seems odd to me that they don't just combine the products.

RSP by itself comes with 1 set of profiles for each camera supported (each camera has a distinct profile for each standard ISO).

Color Engine is additional profiles that basically extend the automatic capabilities RSP with regard to color (if I understand it correctly).

Eric _ honestly I bought it for my XT and hope they offer it as an upgrade for the 30D but if they don't I can't say if I'd spend the money on it or not. You can see difference in the profile but nothing outstanding.

Looking at their website I'm not too sure the Color Engine support for the 30D is available yet.

Personally, I haven't seen any problems with color with RSP.
DPReview is now posting the same shot postprocessed with several different RAW converters, looking at their real world shots, I'm not sure I see that much color difference between it and the other processors.

I installed the Color Engine trial and preferred the RSP internal profile for the 20D. I guess it's all a matter of taste. Looking at the sample in vjack's link, I think the one of the left is more natural. As for the price, Pixmantec is being a bit cheeky wanting so much for this add-on. In the many duplicate emails they've sent me (despite my having upgraded to the premium edition soon as it was released), they've used the phrase "breaks pricing tradition for full featured RAW converters". It is touted as being a price-leader. However Bibble Pro sells for $US129.95 and in my book is overall a superior product. Clearly Pixmantec needs to make money to survive, so it will be interesting to see what the next version offers.
