I'll add to the previous...

The things you look for when checking with other monitors are the potential problem spots. Does it get muddy or overly bright in a disturbing way? Is there anything distorting at higher levels? Do you hear everything that's supposed to be heard? Is something sticking out from the mix differently when compared to your mains? Does the bass work on high & low levels?

You should familiarize yourself well with any speakers you intend using as reference monitors. Listen to a lot of music through them so you learn to know how things should sound with them. After you feel you know the speakers and the sound they produce well you can check your own work on them and get information that actually benefits your mixes.
