To truly enjoy digital photography, invest in good cameras and lenses is not enough, you need a good monitor to display your nice photos.

The normal home use LCD monitors can only display 70% of the NTSC color. Some better / upper models can display up to 90% of the NTSC color; but 90% of the NTSC color is still far below the number of color that your camera can capture. So, most home users may never see the “true color” of their photo before.

Meanwhile, Adobe RGB color standard is more comprehensive, if your monitor can display 100% Adobe RGB color, than would means you are seeing quite close to the “true color” that human eye can ever see.
