I think it's worth it , i have used it on about 10 different monitors in the past 12 months, i was sending myself insane trying to be satisfied with manual adjustments and always tweaking picture settings, it might take me a while but once i get set with a profile with the spyder i don't even think about it anymore. I got ripped off on mine as well though, cost like $320 au. When this one gives out i might change it up a bit and go for the x rite i1 display pro or the colormunki but the spyder has served my purpose well... My purpose is insanity btw lol.

I think 1.3 or 1.35 gamma and a contrast of 110 bring my 120Hz color levels pretty close to 60Hz levels. This is just from my perspective though, I don't have any calibration equipment.
Yeah, i'm still noticing a fair gamma shift at 96hz, i prefer to err on the side of caution and don't really want my pixel clock that high, plus the possibility of image retention and the hassle of a re calibration, i think i'm done yo. I will definitely keep those settings handy for the next time i play around with it tho, so thanks.
