Of course not. But I would make that determination before I spent 25% of the cost of the TV on a calibration.


No one is picking on you, but some have been surprised by your stated plan. I've been reading about calibrations for several years, and your idea is a new one to me.


I hope you're satisfied with your TV. The calibrator (Gregg Loewen) suggested to you is outstanding. If you want to check out the reports that owner's have written about his work use the link at the bottom of my post. For flat panel displays check out post # 2.

But he has a good point, HT. We all know how good Gregg Loewen is, there's nobody better out there. But if the owner doesn't think the results are good enough to keep his set after the calibration, his decision to take it back and get his money back is a good one.


Expensive, but if he really is not impressed enough with the results, it's the only game in town. I applaud his willingness to risk 1/4 of the value of his set just to find out!

I picked up a Samsung PN58B650 the other day and i'm looking to get it calibrated in a couple weeks. I have been working on getting it broken in the meantime.

I am located in Burlington CT, is there anyone on here that is reputable calibrator for this area. I have heard good things about Peter Nelsen but i would like to have options.

Thanks.

Craig

TweakTV has a coverage map here http://www.tweaktv.com/who-we-are/tw...-coverage.html . All of these guys are at the top of their game. Some, if not all of them you probably know. They require a $50 deposit for all in home calibration reservations, but will refund up until a week before the scheduled calibration meeting. Testimonials can be found here as well http://www.tweaktv.com/forum/home-ca...s/showcat.html .

It's great to have this info, but it's inconvenient to search the thread for someone in our area.


Is there such a thing as a post editable by more than just the OP or a moderator?


Then a post could be started where all of the calibrators put there info in, say, by order of zip code.

Here is an AVS List of active Calibrators (2nd Post by State) and the ISF Master Database Here

how much do you charge on average to calibrate a crt hd widescreen tv?

My basic cal package on your primary scanrate for HD widescreen CRT RPTV tech is $485, but often both scanrates get done for an additional $285, total 770. No additional work needs to be done on the structural parts of the cal for those sets that convert the 480 to 540p before it ever hits the screen, so in those cases only part of the additional 285 would need to come into play.


There are extras, which I highly recommend and would be glad to discuss directly.


No pms please, for that further info. Please contact me directly -

I have had the great honor of working with Pat Bradley at Runco CES & CEDIA exhibits and dealer events many times over the years and can attest that there's no one within our ISF calibrator ranks who is more well-respected, qualified or dedicated to making great pictures than Pat. Very, very highly recommended (please, just stay out of the lower Hudson Valley, the rest of the video world is yours!
