I was thinking that any money was a bad deal for the buyer but $250? OUTRAGEOUS!
Google it or, you know, play around with your settings until you like it.
For a #10 from Jimmy Johns's with extra tomatoes and 2 Doritos Locos Tascos Supremes I'll go through that auto tuning where the TV asks you which picture you like better. Any spare young ladies around because that #10 & tacos can be negotiable.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
The art of business right there.
Television calibration is one of those things that most would never pay for but for some it's a must. It also depends on the tv.
For most, the settings you can adjust are perfectly fine, and often you can find good settings on forums like AVS. You can also buy calibration dvd's where you can change the settings on your own.
For calibration, they can go in and change things that a normal user cannot or should not attempt to change. This can really clear up some tv's that may have some issues or can improve the image much more than user controlled settings. Up to you if you are willing to pay a couple hundred dollars for it.
As for going with Best Buy, I can't answer how good they are. Some reviews online are awful. They just showed up and changed some user controlled settings. Others are what you would expect from an ISF certified calibration.
If you really think your tv's picture could use improving or something about the picture is bothering you that you can't fix, might be worth it. Yet if you can dial it in where you think it looks good, I wouldn't spend the money (maybe get a cheap self calibration DVD). As for BB, up to you. I would at least shop around and talk to calibration experts in your area. Ask what their service includes (some will include audio setup), what they use, how many settings they will do (day/night, each input, etc), how much money, etc.
Best Buy and "professional" do not go together in the same sentence, thought, or definition, PERIOD!
What's up George Mikan?
