I live close to Abt here in Illinois and have purchased many items from them, including TVs, several appliances, a BBQ grill and other small electronics. I have always had a great experience and their staff is very good. Their prices are very competitive and they also offer a price match. Delivery and setup has never been an issue, but since I live local I can't speak to their delivery service throughout the country. For local shopping, I go check out Abt before I even think about going to Best Buy. They have been very reliable for me.

Thanks for sharing...that made me laugh. $420 for the touch pen! I'd love to ask them how many people have actually purchased the pen at that price. tongue.gif

I know why they did it & I'll definitely measure with it on high & medium, but I feel the extra few fl squeezed out, isn't going to be worth jacking up the gamma & wb.

Also wanted to thank you for the updated settings. Enjoying them while watching House of Cards and Arrested Development smile.gif

I bought my p60st60 from Abt because they had the lowest price I could find (see the deals thread).

It arrived a few days after ordering and their delivery company, Air Group was top notch. They sent two people to deliver the TV and the TV and box were in pristine shape.

Just give Air Group a call a couple days after you order and they'll provide an ETA on the delivery.

Are there specific modes you have to set the TV to in order to use the touch pen?

For example, could I watch a game on ESPN, pause it, and then telestrate the play?

I bought a 50" Panny plasma from them 5 years ago, no problems. TV was delivered the day they said it would be.

Hello all! I currently have a G10 series plasma and the time has come to move on to something new... My G10 has never amazed me and i have DSE (dirty screen effect), but I'm thinking of a VT60..

But recently, part of a game image on the G10 became burned in.. it took 4 years of mixed play, lots of TV watching, movies, etc... but my son plays the lego games (not all the time mind you) but i guess it added up..we now have slight burn in from the games... I did a proper burn-in with the G10 when i got it in '09. To this day, IR lasts for days, up until yesterday (and only after I ran a movie) did the IR of the Boston Bruins/New York Rangers score board from May 23 go away!

Concerned that the ST60 would suffer the same fate...burn in scares me.. thoughts?

Going to post this in the VT60 thread too and get their takes on it...

After keeping up with about 10 different threads for a year or so, I completely believe that IR varies from panel to panel. Its the only thing that could make sense. When ChadB calibrated mine he noted that it had worse ir than is common. He has calibrated dozens of STs and probably looked at around 100 (just a guess).

Depends on the ambient lighting behind it. It would be best to do it when its off regardless.

I thought when calibrating it should be done in a normal viewing conditions. Is that correct?
Heywould's Avatar Heywould 10:54 AM 05-30-2013
What difference does the lighting make to the calibration. the calibration is done with a mechanical/optical device so anything that does not affect that device is irrelevant. (Rhetorical) This device does not see the lighting people are adding to their TV's, as I understand it, it is ether touching or very very close to the tv so no light can get in and affect the outcome.

The only difference this lighting will make is to your eye, it will make the picture appear to be different.(darker or lighter depending)

Judging just by eye, I find that the high setting gives the worst results.

Well if he can make my graph look anything like one he posted way back in this thread I'm sure I am.

Was actually just going to get myself a CalMan setup and tinker which I may still do, I have other tv's, friends etc but I had made an appt with him way back in December. Got an email the other day he was going to be up here, forgot all about it and my deposit LOL

DIY is fun I went that route also but in the end wasnt satisfied, read the review in my sig and then scroll up in that thread and check out the cal charts from my calibration in short absolute perfection smile.gif

These tv backlight kits...do they make the 3D glasses flicker?
Heywould's Avatar Heywould 02:20 PM 05-30-2013
Not the glasses, but the backlight may flicker(through the glasses) depending on your refresh settings. if the setting is not a multiple of 60hz then you may notice it.

I would agree with this. My only experience with calibration was when ChadB did mine. I have a pretty bright environment. And while he did ask me to close the blinds I believe that it was more so that he could see the tv better than anything else. Its difficult to judge sharpness and what not when you have bright sunlight reflecting off of the screen. Some parts of calibration are done by eye.

Is it normal to see some of the pixels sizzling and jumping around? I can't really explain it well and don't notice it unless the screen is on a static blue or gray screen (like my Sony BD player home screen), and I have to be right up 6 inches from the screen. Is that normal?

Sounds like dot crawl ? The screen is not very attractive at 6 inches and it takes couple hundred hours for the phosphors to settle in I wouldn't worry about it
