If I do decide to get one of these, what is the steps I should take to ensure I got a good one? I know I want to run RGB slides to look for bad pixels, what is the easiest way to do this and what slides do I use? How do I properly check for banding? What is acceptable for banding? I have never seen banding, I am coming from a Sony HD CRT TV.
Also, If I get it ISF calibrated do I need to wait a certain number of hours before getting it calibrated? I assume it is best to wait a certain period in case the things dies.
