Sony 950G Calibration

I will be getting a Sony 950G 85" display installed on Wednesday. How many hours of use should I wait before getting a professional calibration?

Are the calibrators from Best Buy to be trusted to do a quality job? I am in the San Diego,CA area
Thanks for your time.

I wouldn't go with Best Buy on a bet. Do a search of this area for Best Buy calibrations and you'll find a number of reports, none really good. There are a number of experienced professional calibrators in the SoCal area. Look here for info:

Recommendations for run time before calibration generally range from 100 to 200 hours. You want the electronics to settle as the set gains runtime, plus give any early failures a chance to pop up before the cal is done.
