Why Calibrate Your Monitor?
Most monitors come out of the box with the brightness set too high and with oversaturated colors – plus they degrade over time. Your display is the window into your digital image, you need to be able to trust it. Spyder5 calibrates your display to an industry color reference standard to ensure your colors are accurate for better print matching. Your image editing will be easier and faster, you’ll spend less time in the “print-edit-print” cycle, and you’ll waste less ink and paper.
I’ve been working with monitors for post processing for 12 years now, and I have never calibrated any of my monitors, but recently I decided it was time to do some calibrating. 
I am working with the Datacolor Spyder5Elite Monitor Calibration. 
I’m very low tech so I was worried I would have problems setting it up and running it, but even with my limited tech skills, I was easily able to calibrate my monitors.
I was really interested in seeing if it would really make much difference, and in my case, it did make a difference, colors were much richer after calibration. 
So I think it was worth it and only wish I would have done it years ago when these products became available.
If you think you would like to calibrate your monitors check out this great product by Datacolor. Here is a link at Hunt’s Photo to purchase the one I have. https://goo.gl/hg3Dso
