a couple years ago there was a list of BR players tested to be accurate
enough for using to calibrate panels.
Is there a new list?
I can't swing a pattern machine but want that piece of mind.
so, is there a new list and where can I find it?

thank you

Generally Oppo's are usually top of the line including for color accuracy. Don't know if others are now producing equally good results. I was personally thinking of picking up one of the 2013 Sony S3100 or S5100. Oppo's are kind of expensive, think the cheapest is around $500

Sony 32" EX400 calibrated settings

Panasonic 50" S60 calibrated settings

HTPC/Sony S5100 to Sony HT-CT150 to Panasonic 55" VT60, Sony 32" EX400, Panasonic 50" S60

I have heard good things about Oppo.

The list I saw had all the brands and some where quite resonably priced.

I've tested the PS3, with good results. It loads faster than most players too.

There's really not much difference between players of respected brands, once the HDMI output is set up correctly, with the exception of LG. LGs have inaccurate black and white levels, and their picture adjustments are far too coarse to make good corrections.
Oppos, Sonys, Panasonics, etc, will all measure very similarly if not identically in most situations, once set up optimally.

Once I will have free time, i will compare 5-10 different Blu-Ray Players using Lumagen as a Pattern Source (as a reference) vs. my Disk as a Pattern Source, as my disk has exact the same pattern size of Lumagen Large Windows Patterns. wink.gif

I calibrated my Samsung D7000 using a Panasonic DMP-BDT220 as source. All dEs below 1, a nice looking picture etc. Then, just for the fun of it, I measured everything again using my old fat PS3 as source. I found exactly zero difference between the two players.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Hello, Check xy differencies next time, dE doesnt mean anything, becasue you can have for example 2 reds with 1dE that have different hues, but they will report the same dE number. wink.gif
