Just had Johnny G. out to calibrate my 34HF81.What a difference!Movie mode,which was way too dark before is now perfect.The colours,and especially the skin tones,are exceptional.My wife freaked out because she could see Lara Croft's pimples,and her arm tatoo under the make-up,in "Tomb Raider".All the people aren't the same colour any more either.And that's just what I've noticed in the first couple of hours.Haven't even gotten around to any serious evening movie watching yet,LOL.I highly recommend Johnny G. to anybody considering a calibration.
Thanks a ton Johnny!
p.s. The wife didn't even laugh when I suggested that Birthday present thing.
Well its been a week now and after watching practically every video and DVD we own plus a few more we rented I can honestly say the difference pre and post calibration is simply wonderful.The colours,subtledy(sp?) in shading,real black,and infinite skin tones make watching a whole new experience.The ultimate compliment came from my wife last night when she said,totally unsolicited,"I'm glad you had this done".
