I have read several threads that go back and forth on which is better. I want to be able to calibrate the tv for the most accurate color representation possible however I can't justify spending $600 on a c6 colorimeter. Are there any new brands out there that are better than the ones mentioned above? Also of the two which one is considered a higher standard. Keep in mind I am a beginner however I will play with it until it is near perfect so one being slightly less user friendly is not a deal breaker.
Where are you located?
Some of our pro calibrators, Chad B is a good one, do travel throughout the country. Might drop him a line.
