Thank You Johnny G.

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".

I'm glad you're enjoying an accurate picture now, Joe!

The funny part to this is that on my out of Joe's house, one of his young kids said to me "before you came, my Dad was saying that he didn't believe you could make the TV any better"!!

Hi JSF13,

I presume John did it for a fee? What would be the rate?

Many thanks.

Also wanted to recommend JohnnyG's service. He calibrated by Toshiba 50H82 last week and I can't believe how vibrant the colours are now, how crips the lines are and how real the skin tones are.

My wife was questioning whether it was worth the money, but after seeing the result, she definitely felt it was worth it.

I would recommend that anyone who wants to get the best of their sets schedule a calibration so that you can really see what you a missing.

Depends on how much work you want done, but the correct answer is "more". PM JG if you want a more accurate estimate.

If you don't want to spend "more", check out the FAQ "What you need to do to your new HDTV". It can help you get a better picture, but you can't get it as accurate as a full calibration.

Let me put it to you this way, if it's under $200 someone is only adjusting your contrast and brightness controls for you...PM JohnnyG, he will let you know.
