Just got the Sony W805 - so far very satisfied, nice TV at nice price :)
But, I cant seem to find any "hardcore" calibrations..... Can anyone help?
Tried Googlin' - but can't seem to find any calibrations.
Thx in advance.
By the way - it's for movies and "general" use. I've found one here, but thats for gaming.
'Sharing display menu settings?'
Here are some other links you should find instructive:
"D-Nice lists his settings for some models, but not all. I don't. I have had VT60 and VT50 owners who used published settings and even followed the break in "rules" religiously, and surprise, surprise...their sets were no better or even worse than if they would have just put them in THX Cinema and not messed with anything.
I don't publish settings for many reasons:
Calibration varies from one sample to the next. If I have 2 VT60s side by side, calibrate the first one, and then put it's settings into the 2nd one, the 2nd one is most likely not going to be good enough to be called calibrated. I've done it before and tried it on an LG LED and several others; it just doesn't work.
Calibration takes into account your specific environment (lighting conditions,etc), system (source settings, etc) and even your wishes (do you like a darker picture or brighter, etc).
If I were to publish settings and you were to put them in, when your set and other variables don't match up, you may mistakenly think "Hey, I don't like this. I must not like a calibrated picture!" That gives calibration an undeserved bad reputation.
I do this for a living and work hard at calibrating each TV from scratch." Chad B
Now if you are really serious about getting to a better picture ... then this article covers your real options.
The summary is:
1. Get a test disc ... follow instructions
2. Get a test disc and hardware and software to do your own calibration. Spend the next year researching / practicing ... and you might get to a better picture eventually ...
3. Hire a professional that knows what they are doing. (Most hire the wrong ones.)
4. Get a test disc/hardware/software to do your own calibration. Get professional level training. (Anywhere from $100-$1600+ and spending more doesn't mean it's automatically better.)
If you are serious of course ...
