Even if I don't notice much of a difference I'd still like to try using a calibration device just for kicks, never tried before.
I bought the i1 display pro which is same hardware as colormunki display just with better software. The funny thing is dispcalgui is better than included software of either and is free open source. The results on fixing gamma and colors on all my displays were excellent. I used it to calibrate Xb271, and it certainly made a noticeable difference (too bad I had to return when hdmi port died). Whether it's enough to justify the expense varies from person to person, but if not having correct results on lagoom test bothers you, having a tool to help you tweak and provide numeric values to what your eyes see certainly wouldn't hurt.
It's also interesting how panels vary. I know a lot of people just go with TFT settings or what they can find on the internet, but it amazed me how much those were off on some of my other displays.And also how different some were with just factory settings. I will say for me, after getting used to calibrated display, playing games on one that can't be calibrated really sucks. (My overlord has no RGB controls so all corrections are on icc profile- which don't get pulled in on games). It sucks bad enough I'm considering trying the Acer lottery again.
If you need any help with settings in dispcalgui, feel free to ask.
