Break-In Time and Calibration?

10-10-2010, 01:34 PM
Ok....I purchased a 65inch VT25 from Best Buy and scheduled the professional calibration well after 100 hours. The Geek Squad tech arrived at my house and noticed that I have 176 hours on the TV and stated that it would be better to wait until it's at least 200 hours. He stated that he would suggest waiting so he can get more points to measure. Has anyone heard of this? From everything I've read, 100 hours is the magic amount of time.

I think 200 hours is the better time to wait myself but it seems many calibrators claim only 100 hours are needed. Maybe some to the calibrators here can chime in.

I always tell customers of a Plasma to wait until 150 hours is reached.

Better that the TV has more hours than less before calibration is performed.
