My favourite settings have been the below.
However, it does not seem to work best for all XL2411T monitors.

Zero crimson tint with BENQ LightBoost!
On the subject of BENQ color calibration, I cancel out the crimson tint via nVidia Control Panel, by doing the following:Via Monitor Menus
Monitor's Contrast Setting = 65 .... (If using nVidia Gamma 1.10)(Note: ASUS VG248QE's seem to like Contrast of 90 instead)Via nVidia Control Panel - "Adjust Desktop Color Settings"
Adjust them individually, R, G, B.
R Contrast = 30%
G Contrast = 45%
B Contrast = 30%
R Brightness = 10%
G Brightness = 40%
B Brightness = 10%
R,G,B Gamma = 1.10(Click the adjuster, then use cursor arrow keys to get exactly 1.10)
Make sure to readjust Monitor OSD contrast everytime you change Gamma. nVidia Gamma 1.10 worked best with a monitor OSD Contrast of 65.
With these settings, I can see the difference between RGB(0,0,0) and RGB(1,1,1), without a wrongly tinted color in backgrounds or in dim colors.Test Patterns Used
-- Lagom Contrast Pattern
-- Lagom Black Level
Here is also a different set of settings to try; just in case the above settings do not work well.

R Contrast = 30%
G Contrast = 35%
B Contrast = 32%
R Brightness = 17%
G Brightness = 20%
B Brightness = 15%
R,G,B Gamma = 1.09 (only able to choose this or 1.11, not 1.10). Lightboost on and Contrast on 65 in OSD. Where you have to boost your green, the colours on my monitor are more balanced as it seems.
You could also purchase a Spyder sensor
to help you do the calibration much more perfectly in a more automatic manner. Make sure the sensor is also compatible with all displays (e.g. plasma/CRT) rather than just LCD, since LightBoost makes LCD behave very differently. One warning, many video games tend to override the calibration (not all, though).Edited by mdrejhon - 3/13/13 at 6:13pm
