It is only $119 because it is out of print and few/none to be had- there is a new one Verison 2 due out in march 2013. The MSRP on these is $24.99 regularly and should be that on the next one released as well.

The 1st edition Benchmark disc is now out of print! We anticipate the 2nd edition Blu-ray disc to be available March, 2013.

The Spears & Munsil High Definition Benchmark Blu-ray Edition is no longer available.

Can someone please send me the link or name for a calibration disk? My Samsung 7000 series looks great, but professional calibration would be nice. Thank You, in advance!!!

I don't grasp the RUSH to buy this disc immediately those prices are for a discontinued disc. Munsel&Spears will soon be releasing their newest disc which can only get better ? No?

But often dvd-movie colors can vary in tone and vibrancy with respect to tv program colors (for example, dvd movie colors tend to be a little more subdued than tv programs), so would the calibration disk settings apply to other input sources?
. Feel free to use your BD player on each input to perform a basic calibration.

Unfortunately, it is the tv programming that can vary, since they don't always adhere closely to the SEMPTE standard, which the calibration disc surely does. But you cannot recalibrate your system for each tv broadcast, so you calibrate your system to the industry standard, and leave it at that.
