Some examples that show why a wide gamut monitor matters:

Re: basically

""The Dell U2410 without a calibration device is useless...
It is also a very trick monitor to calibrate.
Anyway you can try my latest profile for the U2410.

*Access the monitor hidden factory menu and change the 6500K RGB to:
Before change anything in the Factory Menu take a photo and/or
write the default values.
R=204
G=209
B=215 "

So it's 2017 & I'm trying to calibrate my u2410 for print. I come from the video world & all I used to care about was Rec709 or srgb & graphics adobeRGB.

Now I find it difficult to get 6500k white point on this monitor before calibrating on spyder5pro. Your post seem informative & specific. The Dropbox link is down for the profile. Also the rgb values are changed/adjusted in factory mode, keep original copy for going back right?

How did you come up with your numbers for 6500k?

Want to reliably print to service bureaus & my own Epson.  I get too bright & color casts...

thx
