Why not just use this much better program?

Aida64 monitor test has better test images but it's not free.

The setup is primarily for work productivity and PRON watching....usually lots of PRON watching while working, filling screens with PRON....so much PRON, thankfully 2560x1440 is good for watching lots of pron simultaneously.

I have an X34 for sale, and have found that its not as immersive as three of these in triple wide and certainly cannot display as much simultaneous pron which is greatly needed.

Wait... are you saying that people use computers for things other than PRON?

Colors shift over time and brightness levels eventually dim as well over time. I use mine on a monthly basis and have it set to remind me every 4 weeks.

Takes all but 5 minutes. I went years with out buying such a tool. I am guilty as well and thought people are NUTS for buying them. Way to expensive for something like that. But, you change your mind real quick seeing before and after results. Its always a dramatic difference.

Is it possible to use a colorimeter to perform the calibration without involving ICC profiles? Reason I ask is I've seen it mentioned a number of times on different forums that there can be issues getting games (my sole use of my PC) to play nice with ICC profiles. I would definitely be interested in more accurate color representation but investing 1-200 dollars for a device that outputs something that isn't 100% guaranteed to work with my games doesn't seem like a wise investment.

Never feel guilty. You have the right to do these things.

Here are the drivers for the panel. Mine was showing up as generic monitor, but the driver fixed it.

I also discovered this app ( http://windows10_dpi_blurry_fix.xpexplorer.com ) (url breaks hyperlinking), which improves the DPI scaling within Windows. If you look at certain windows within the operating system, some stuff is very blurry. For instance, Device Manager looks pretty terrible. With this app, everything looks super sharp. Just download it and then select, use windows 8.1 scaling and then reboot. Use 125% (default for this monitor), unless you have a custom level set.
