Well got my set all calibrated this morning and what is surprising to me is that the settings that were dialed in were practically the same as the ones Tom Norton used to calibrate the W9 reviewed at Sound And Vision.Com. My set looks fabulous I will say that. The guy who calibrated my set dialed in everything via CalMan SpectraCal plus some other tools and it took a little over 3 1/2 hours to do. Settings on the W9 out of box look excellent but after calibration they are out of this world and I will go on record to say that the PQ and black levels are the best I have ever seen on an HDTV and that includes Plasma's as well, yes I just said that and is only my opinion mind you. There are a few adjustments I asked to be left on such as the Eco Sensor, Black Corrector set to low (Even though it don't need it!), and Reality Creation and Motionflow (My Preferences) because I just like the look of the picture when those are on. Otherwise that's it and I can FINALLY say I have the tv I have wanted and have been looking for. Size, PQ, Black Levels, perfection in every area you name it. Sony's W9 is all I could have asked for in a tv. My advise to anyone out there is get your tv Calibrated if possible because it does indeed make one hell of a big difference.
