I like to try settings that have worked on a pro calibration, just to see if they might work on my setup. This is the third PJ that I have had success with using a reviewers settings! Of course I don't hesitate to make further adjustments to suit my taste. Maybe I've been lucky or maybe there is more consistency to PJs than people generally acknowledge.
The 'chromapure' settings are just slightly warmer, but richer and more accurate overall than out of box reference is on my DIY silver cloth screen. I could not dial it in that well using my eye and my old DVE setup DVD.
I sure am glad I seem to have a good unit; if I didn't I would expect Sony to send me another with no excuses!
Good luck to all with getting things dialed in!
