Nope. I did the entire test and calibrated as best as I can with my own eye. Obviously it is not 100% accurate, but there is no way I can justify spending 200 bucks on a colorimeter, since I will probably be using this monitor for watching movies and gaming (maybe photoshop once in awhile). Therefore I don't need 100% accuracy. I am happy with the way my monitor currently looks.

btw, I gave +rep to all that helped

Adjusted my gamma via that tool, was accurate if I assume 1 pt = .01 points gamma. I knew I was ~2.15 gamma beforehand, bump it up about +6 and improved the image with slightly more detail (see more accurate dynamic range). Not much but noticeable.
