I read somewhere that a monitor that is older than 3 years cannot be successfully calibrated with a color management hardware device. Is this really true??

We use a Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 7 CRT that is about 7 years old. It displays photos very nicely, but I have no way of telling if it is displaying the colors accurately or not. In the past we have just given it the "ole eyeball method" with adobe gamma. The printed photos (Epson R1800) seem to match with what we see on the screen.

Would buying a color management device be a waste of money?
