I would like for the group to gage the range of recommended calibration of a plasma, and specifically, the 50XR5. What is the bare minimum calibration effort, below which no one would be happy. What is the maximum calibration effort that most would agree is too costly overkill. I have no idea of the cost of hiring a professional, but once my money is on the line, I'd be sick to think he did a lousy job. On the other hand, if I were to buy 1-3 do-it-yourself DVD's and guides, spending an equivalent amount of money, and still mucking up the job, I'd be the fool. Some of you feel you are personally "good" at calibrating. Some of you pray that the screen makes you happy out of the box, so you don't need to have an answer. I believe something is necessary, because otherwise why are we buying the display? Yeah, I'm freeing up floor space, but it's still about the picture!
