In regards to BB teaching in HT...I work in HT, I am just a college student trying to pay for rent and I sure as hell dont plan on working there a day after I graduate. I can attest to the fact that I was told to tell people considering a calibration about how it can save you money. I never emphasize this in my sales, I focus more on gamma, greyscale, accurate overall colors and geometry. If someone asks about our calibration demo I say that calibrated sets will typically run a little cooler that defualt settings because the brightness and contrast are turned up too high out of the box.

Am I the only BB employee out there who doesn't sell stuff they dont believe in or say what they want us to say? I dont ever sell things to people if I dont think they need it...I dont work on commission so why would I? I do think you should get a warranty on your set, I would never pay BB prices (especially the new GSBTPT) but I have had a set fail and I had a warranty to fall back on. I never tell people to get HDMI cords they dont need, I just suggest our brands for less money than monster. much drama in the AVS
