Yes it is. Same thing happened to one of my buddy's sets. He no longer uses the non working port for obvious reasons.

For those wondering, the auction for the 151 in Florida ended with one bid at 447. Because this was local pickup only, this is a more accurate barometer for the current market value and the kind of...

No it isnt. Only the isf day and isf night are calibrated. Isf auto is impossible to calibrate due to the dynamic adjustments that the sensor makes. The adjustments give inconsistent meter reading...

Also if you look at the bidding activity on the California one, the bidding jumped from 150 to 800 with no bids in between. Clearly someone is desperate for a Kuro and scared everyone off with such...

Anyone see the 151 in Florida on eBay? No reserve, starting bid at 447 with a buy it now of 900. 1 day left, zero bids. If you factor in ebay and paypal fees, I bet the guy would gladly take 700...

No one is debating whether it works or not. Rather, that its pointless (and harmful) to use it since it dynamically adjusts settings that have already been calibrated to a specific light output. ...

I think the market fluctuates, with tax time being the worst time to buy a Kuro (but best time to sell) for obvious reasons. End of the year is a good time to buy because the holiday season...

Its actually a light/color sensor. I avoid it like the plague because it adjusts color saturation and contrast dynamically. Makes no sense to do that when the TV's ISF Day and Night modes are...

Are you sure the colormunki can read down to .0005? Doesn't seem right to me since the lowest the i1 display pro3, which is a better and more expensive meter, can read is .001.
