I've been waiting for my PT-AE8000U for a long time, but it has arrived. As someone that only had non-Full HD displays, the first impression was amazing.
But, as I know it needs calibration, I decided to search a bit before asking questions here.
As I have seen on the thread, ColorHCFR
is a great tool to use for calibration. But I couldn't find any solid instructions on how to use it, so I googled and found this
thread from CurtPlame forum (I've never visited it before). Since I'm a newcomer to the calibration thing, the instructions on it seemed quite good (I read it all) and easy to follow, but I can't judge if they are valid. So, is there any better guide or this one is fine?
When reading the thread though, it came clear that I need to purchase a meter. Otherwise I won't be able to measure anything. The thread suggests a couple meters, but it seems that they are connected to products they offer. When it comes to suggestions that may be based on products sites offer, I'm a little bit skeptic. Are their suggestions trustable? Which meter should I use?
Depending on the meter suggested, I'll wait to order one (I may not find or it'll be expensive, in my country). My family is traveling to NY, and I might ask them to bring me one. To end my post, could anyone recommend me sites or stores (in NY, of course ) that offer meters?
I did a quick search about it, but as I'm not familiar with the US market for this type of equipment, I might skip a good one.
