I understand Beanagee1, but I would do the calibration myself--already did on my last set. No waste of money; only time.beanagee1 said:This opinion has now been confirmed. I have read it here as well as on AVS. It must be right.
But seriously, I did wait for 3 months before getting the set calibrated. If you are going to have problems with your set then problems should show up early on. So why waste money on a set that maybe shipped back. This is good enough logic for me to wait for a while.
Agent 57! How are you?!57 said:If you're talking about a professional calibration, a month or two wait is probably a good idea, also in case you have any "infant mortality" with the TV, so that you don't calibrate a TV that's going to "go back".
If you're talking about using a setup DVD, there's nothing stopping you from doing a setup right away and doing a "touch up" in a month or two.
Thanks for the suggested chronology, DVST8. However, I'm forced to ask whether there is a "burn in" period for LCD's in particular. I know this is the case with CRT's. But I believe there's debate as to whether this is the case with LCD's. I guess that's been my question all along. Can someone confirm?DVST8 said:I'd calibrate it myself right off the bat with a calibration DVD; the contrast, brightness, and colours are going to be way off. Then come back to it a few months later after if's been 'burned' in and fine tweak it.
