Hi all. Yesterday I purchased a samsung PN51E8000 plasma tv. I am extremely satisfied with it in every respect.When I purchased it the salesman gave me a deal on a guy to come calibrate the set, so I went for it, which will occur in a couple of weeks. My question is this, is it wise to have it calibrated when the intended use will largely be gaming?

Yes, calibration is not Content Specific, it is to get the set to display whatever content is being input using the Rec 709b HD standard that all HD content should be masted to.
