    I've just got a Dell 2405PFW monitor and it's lovely. I fired up WoW and was blown away -- like playing in a cinema! :)

    The things is that I know it could be calibrated a lot better (it's too bloomin' bright for a start! :) ). I've reduced my brightness right the way down to 0 but wondered if anyone had taken the time to fiddle with the rgb settings to make it look perfect?

    I'm also after a good icc profile for the monitor but just can't find one (there doesn't appear to be anything on the CD that came with it, except for manuals).

    here's mine if you still need them:

    VGA:

    contrast = 60
    brightness = 5
    pixel clock = 50
    phase = 14

    red = 36
    green = 33
    blue = 32

    DVI:

    contrast = not available
    brightness = 35
    gamma in GFX settings = 0.91 gamma level
