I'm sure you could still find a "BRICK" phone around if you really want that great call quality and a sturdy handset.

Or better yet, do not updated any device firmware until 2-3 weeks after it has been out so you can read all the complaints about what it broke. Then decide if you want it or not

You should have your calibrator come out a MINIMUM of once every 18 months as things drift over time and the panel ages.

I'm sorry, I don't buy the "I won't do an update because it 'MIGHT' change a setting".
Everything ok ?? You seem upset. I was referring to a change that could happen and not having a clue what exactly changed, BY EYEBALLING IT. Read the entire comment first before you go into a rage filled rant, lol. Are you serious ?? This last update (which I did) harmed absolutely nothing, which is the norm. But I have seen updates from car nav systems to tv's, to blu ray players to computers and guys (and gals) lost all settings and had to start from scratch. That isn't a fun situation. Calm down bro. Go put a chicken in the "rotisserie", pour yourself a drink, turn your tv on and enjoy your evening.

Everything is fine, I was merely making the point that instead of thinking your calibration will last for multiple years, that you should have your set looked at every 18 months by a professional (yearly is better).

I am refuting your assertion that as long as you don't change anything on your set, nothing will change.....Time will change things for you and should be addressed regularly for the optimal results you desire

I agree with settings changing over time. Having a calibrator out once a year is staying on top of things to say the least. I think every 18-24 months would be fine as well. My VT has been wall mounted and watched since April 2013, I'm having my first calibration done in Jan 2015 so I'm pretty damn excited !

Not Everyone can afford a calibration every year or 2.I'm still happy with my 65VT50 Calibrated 2 years ago by Kevin Miller.
