Like most of us, I calibrated my monitor (using the old Spyder3Express). The instructions on these things always say you should recalibrate your monitor every couple of weeks or so. I occasionally do this on my desktop an laptop, but I'll be darned if I can ever see any difference from the recalibration.

Do modern (non-CRT) monitors really need recalibration more than about once an year? Just wondering.

My take is that the manufacturer's of calibration equipment are saying to recalibrate that frequently to increase their sales.  If they said "once a year" the need to buy the equipment would be noticeably dwindled.
