I reviewed for myself how LCD monitors work. Is there anything, such as the brightness of the light soure, which one adjusts at the hardware level. Or it it just all done by the internal LUT.
Typically the brightness (backlight intensity) is a hardware adjustment that doesn't compromise the image quality. More advanced displays that use RGB LED backlight will allow white point setting as well. If the display has greater than 8 bit precision internally, but the graphics card LUT or interconnect (ie. DVI etc.) is only 8 bit and the calibration package can't set the internal LUTs (ie. Argyll currently), then there may be advantage in setting transfer curve (gamma etc.) on the display as well.
