Gamut coverage and accuracy are not the same thing

The reason why I was so enthusiastic about the ViewSonic VX2270Smh-LED 22" Frameless LED Display - is mainly because it had 100% sRGB on a factory calibrated preset -
so that setting virtually makes initial calibration redundant.

Covering 100% of the sRGB gamut does not mean that the monitor is accurate. It could be way off and still have a range that is 100% (or more). Accuracy is how close each individual gradation is to what it should be.
