It works. Its easy. And yes most pictures look better after calibration. Why I say most is that if you are say watching football games having the exact colors is not of primary importance especially if you don't know what the exact colors would be. For movies, if the colors don't look right to you, say the color of a red stop sign, then some of the fooling you into you are there will be lost. Just like using a screen with gain will always remind you that you are watching a screen and not looking through a window which a good 1.0 gain screen will do.
Now I have the full monty with the 125 point calibration capability. But I don't use it with my Sony 1000ES. I do use it to set the primaries and secondaries, gray scale, and gamma but the Sony is so accurate at calulating the right colors, that after spot checking points within the triangle I find no errors to be corrected. But some projectors can benefit from 125 points and you will notice the improvement in such things as flesh tones. Most oy your cost is for the Lumagen and there is a big Lumsage sale going on this weekend. Also the Lumsagen does a lot more than just proving calibration adjustments and automation of the calibration process.
