That is pretty much my experience as well. (PS - they only did 1 input)

I thought I would bring this back to LIFE, as nothing better to do.....

I'm totally color blind, and use the TV's calibrated presets. No complaints from wife on her TV, either.....lol What's the hub dub all about?

You have to see a properly calibrated set to appreciate it .....or not, some folks don't like it they say to dull or what they expected (although it is actually more accurate to reality. I personally like a little more punch, but not Vivid. Most new sets are usually more close to accurate to true color than sets of a few years ago and with several presets to achieve that.

If you are totally color blind and your wife doesn't complain about her TV (or yours)... it's probably not worth the expense for you.

It was a good thing for me back when I had a 38" CRT TV 20 years ago.

Agree. The new sets have reduced the value of calibration. Many I've checked are close enough out of the box. Of course if I made a living at it, that opinion may differ.

Ed Johnson (pro-calibrator) from the HD shootouts agreed when I expressed the outta the box cinema setting was almost spot on. And mine's 3 yrs old the more recent sets are even better.
