I don't think anyone was saying that BBY delivered a "professional level" calibration service. We were merely stating that the individual the OP worked with in store was clearly overstating the "need" for a calibration. I even stated earlier in the thread that many people on here believe that the GS delivers far from a "professional" calibration. I would think it's safe to say that quite a few people on AVS know about the inadequacies of the GS calibration services. I however disagree with the notion that BBY "tried to establish themselves as a source of professional calibration." None of their employees(or a very, very few number) can even truly speak to the benefits of proper display calibration and what it truly involves. They may/might offer it as a service, but there's a reason why they now offer it as a "free service" for RZ Premier Silver members, because it's not popular enough as a stand alone option, or because they truly know the worth of that service performed by their installers. I'll go with the latter.
