The help is not qualified, and the color match machines are not the good (expensive) ones like at an actual paint store

Depending on what you are using for a sample, an actual paint store can get really, really, close
They use the (better) machines, then eyeball it and use some judgment to get as close as possible

PS, the paint at Home Depot is pretty crappy anyway, your project will go much faster, smoother, and look better if you buy your paint at a real paint store

You will find the Behr Ultra brand hard to beat for the price and outstanding quality, (coverage and adhesion). Recently HD spent 100 mil.
on updating dispensers and color match machines. Most times the match is very close and is close enough for me. Depending on which HD you go to you will find expeirenced mixers who can tweek the match to get it right. HD sells 8oz paint samplers now in any color. I do allot of painting and found that the HD tier pricing program they have for painters and contractors is hard to beat. Also if I need to paint a apartment the same color HD has various glidden brands that do the job at a much cheaper price. I will never pay for the over priced big named brands again.

An exact match can be achieved......but we always tell our walk in customers if this is for touch ups it won't work. As someone has already stated you could actual find the can you originally used and it may not even work then. Depending on brand and or line of paint, they will fade and the color will change over time. Get the match and paint the whole wall the other walls will be fine.
