For those who use calibrated monitors, is this pretty much something to do once and then you're good, or do they drift and you need to re-do it every once in awhile?
I'm currently using an Asus PB278 and I did a calibration with the Spyder5 Express (the low end one) and DisplayCal — seems better, I'd say.

Most manufacturers of calibration gear suggest doing it once a month or so. I suppose back in the day of CRT technology that might have been advice I would follow. CRT phosphors burn and the different coloured phosphors burn at different rates. That isn’t an issue with today’s LED back lighting etc. LCD panels are effectively a grid of RGB switches that are either working or not but they don’t shift in their effectiveness.
With the possible exception of a pro studio when once a week or day might be prudent(even if excessive) I personally think once a year is more than enough insurance.
FYI my own schedule is to run a calibration yearly and that rarely shows much change if any.

I work with two monitors and calibrate about every 3 months, Chris. Am interested in what Rob above has said.
