I'm mostly happy with my new IPS U2414H, but comparing it side-by-side with my beloved old CRT, I can see that the colours are not quite as good on the U2414H. It has less life-like skin tones, carefully chosen colour schemes are a touch less pleasing to the eye, etc.
I know calibration can make the colours of my monitor more closely match the standard colours used for viewing and printing, but this particular monitor comes factory calibrated by Dell (TFTCentral review has details).
Is this as good as I'll get without buying expensive calibration equipment? If not, what can I do to improve the colours?
I actually only care about making my movies and games more beautiful and immersive, I'm not doing any really serious photography work.
