Depends who is watching it !
Me - PQ freak.
Wife - it has color and makes noise. It's good. Leave it alone.
6 TVs in the house. 5 for the wife, 1 for me.
The 1 gets constant attention.
The rest, whenever I'm in the mood, and wife not home. (Unfortunately, now she's home all the time, so just mine. Few more years, she'll be on pension, and home all the time.)
Manufacturers will probably do some kind of calibration - same settings for all, or an actual kind of calibration ?
Due to jostling during shipping, and handling at the wholesaler and retailer, settings may get knocked out of adjustment
Calibrated right out of the box ? Most prefer after 100 to 1000 hours of use. (Or both)
Weather affects, electronic changes as parts heat up and cool, room conditions, humidity, and other factors can affect the final results.
Why I took up DIYing. Software and meters have improved over the years, and I like what I like to watch. Seems off - bring back to spec. (This is habit like an addiction!)
You're always learning something new when DIYing. ie I use to calibrate all my HDMI Inputs using software, meter and pattern generator. Recently, I calibrated using AVCHD patterns burned on a Blu-ray for my BD player. Result, a different set of settings. Pattern Generator settings were different than the pattern on Blu-ray settings. I'm going to assume, for my BD player, the Blu-ray patterns are the better way to go because I'm now calibrating the player output versus the pattern generator.
PS. Re room changes: recently purchased a new TV for the wife, and moved her old TV into the guest bedroom. The old TV had to be completely re-calibrated due to the room being a different color, and lighting was also a factor. So manufacturer calibrates where and when, and you're going to setup where?
