You know your monitor isn't calibrated if you haven't calibrated it in last 6 months.. Here's how actual calibration looks like

And even that is only software calibration cause U2412m doesn't support HW calibration..

here take rather this color discrimination test for fun :D http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?pageid=77&lang=en

the aim is to score 0 that means your color discrimination is good.

On my older monitor I failed miserably :D:D lol... I tought i'm colorblind or something. Bought I new one, calibrated it and now it's 0 every time :D

(of course this still doesn't mean your monitor is calibrated correctly, it's just for fun)

I have my doubts how calibration could affect the score, as it would only offset the hues/tones, but not the hierarchy between but I guess maybe it can.

I don't remember my exact score, but it was low...like 50 (though I have 2 friends who were below 90). And yes, I am colorblind between red and green, just like 10perc. of guys :- ) Veronika was zero, that's why she chooses colors.

Because with bad calibration/bad monitor multiple colors could be displayed exactly the same

I only mentioned that test as a more fun way to waste time cause eyeballing some basic setup in windows is...
