I use QPCard in addition to Color Checker and recommend it as well.  I didn't mention QPCard in my first response since I'm not sure if it works with Lightroom.  If it does then great.  I suppose it should since it works with ACR.  I've just never tried it.

QP Card is a bit faster to create a profile.  One thing I dislike about QPCard is that they limit you to 15 characters in the name of the profile you create.  This is just silly.

They have also been teasing us for quite a long time now that there will be QP Calibration support for Color Checker targets (CC24).  I would rate the QPCard construction itself as flimsy compared with the X-Rite Color Checker Passport.  Not bad, but nowhere near Color Checker.  The Color Checker is easier to take a photo of in more situations if you are shooting alone than the QPCard due to the built in adjustable kickstand of the Color Checker.

But, profiles from the QPCard are really good.  And at the end of the day that's the bottom line, right?
