Currently, the easiest way to get much better colors is to install the .icc profile file for the XL2420Z. It makes colors much better.

Yes, a colorimeter helps.

You can also install the .icc file that's available for the XL2420Z to give its colors a good jumpstart.

Calibrate your monitor here http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test, at least the result would be as good as the icc profile included (better actually).

It's usually a gamma correction to be done, most of gaming preset are unrealisticly vivid or washed out.
