I am about to purchase a 500M. I am unsure whether I should buy the tv, buy the patch from controlcal, and burnin myself and install the patch myself with D-nice settings, or purchase the set with burnin and professional calibration done. Can I install patch and D-nice settings w/out a meter? Some on here seem very satisfied with D-nice settings.
Is 8 bills extra a fair price for 150 hour burnin and calibration with patch by top calibrators? Thanks in advance for any advice.
