Hi,


I just received my Samsung PN58B860 today. Can I calibrate it immediately or should I wait after a couple hundred hours of use?


Much thanks.

If you own calibration software and equipment, you can do it immediately. Just know you will be doing a recal after 100-200 hours of use.

Unless the Pro offers a service to re-cal after 100-200 hours as part of the initial calibration, many do.

If you have the disc ... do it now ... do it next week ... do it next month. Do it as often as you like. No sense watching bad images when you have the power to fix it now.



regards

I only have experience with DVE and the Spears & Munsil disc. Both are very useful, but I'll put it this way: I rarely find myself using DVE on BD, I always reach for the spears/munsil disc...


That being said, it doesn't have greyscale patterns for that, etc, though actually now that I think of it, I don't think DVE BD does either, but I always use a generator for that purpose anyway, so I dunno. The DVD version of DVE does though, as well as Avia. Don't know if you need greyscale windows anyway, you didn't say if you had colorimetry equipment for that.

Easy to follow ... but it does not come with a blue filter. (At least the two I ordered didn't have filters.)


The DVE does.

He doesn't need a blue filter. Most recent Samsung displays, including this one have a blue-only mode. It's arguably more accurate than a blue filter anyway, as it doesn't depend on the quality/accuracy of an external lense.

I believe they are already, or shortly will be shipping a blue filter to all purchasers. At least that's my understanding given what Stacey said in their thread:

another good point as well. Still, filters are useful on most consumer displays that don't have this mode.

You understate the point. I can't think of an argument at all for a filter over a blue only mode. The blue only mode is clearly the method to use if it is available.
