2002 Sony Trinitron KV-29FX30, also calibrated.
Thank James. I had a quick look and while that Dell was a nice display when it hit the market 10 years ago, it does not feature a hardware LUT and as soon as you attach your MiSTer (or anything else than the OS you calibrated it with) your calibration is gone. Same for the Sony.
I assume you use the i1Profiler included with the i1Display Pro (I use that colorimeter, too)? If not, take a look at DisplayCAL (OpenSource), you can get even better results with that.

I understand you advocate for this because for some reason it looks good on your display to your eyes (very subjective), but we don't want something like this permanent in a core especially if it is a purely cosmetic feature and done wrong (imo).
I guess with "we" you mean "I" and your impression is purely subjective, too, when you use the MiSTer. Your displays are not calibrated outside of Windows/Mac OS and more likely to display wrong colors, due to the white point calibration that requires you to setup RGB individually and then are corrected by a LUT. Besides, since hardly any user will use a real calibrated display it is good to have a few options to choose from individually. That is the point: It is an optional feature that you can as well leave off if you don't like it.
