Yah, that's what I'm hoping for but it doesn't say in the specification sheet on any monitor I've looked at. And asking the "nice" sales people isn't much of an option, I suspect they wouldn't even know what I'm talking about in most cases.
I usually just fiddle with the settings myself. My dad used to own a TV store a long time ago, and I've heard other sales people tell me that they purposefully mess up the color on some TV/monitors in order to make it look worse than another model they are trying to sell a lot of. It's always in your best interest to make sure all the settings are set to optimum, and you can check to see if they have that option while you are at it.
