Hi, all:
Is it worth downloading an ICC color profile? My monitor delivers nice graphics and color, but I've read that they can be enhanced. Does it use one from its CD now? Thank you.
 
If you aren't doing graphics, photo, or video work, and you don't see a color problem with your monitor, I would avoid using an ICC profile.

Most mass-market monitors are adjusted so the colors "pop" and look more saturated than they should be. The #1 reaction I get when I calibrate people's monitors is that they complain the colors now seem faded and muted. Those weak colors are accurate, it's just that people have grown used to oversaturated colors.
