    I was curious as to how much professional calibration may cost me for a Hitachi 53UDX10B.

    I am in Ottawa, which is in Ontario, Canada.

    Hope I can get some input from someone in a near region to my own and possibly some contacts that may be able to do the calibration for me.

    Thanks a lot

    Matt

    A few hundred dollars, at least--$350 or higher.

    Gregg Loewen can answer this the best.

    Thanks for the quick response. IS the $350+ you have quoted here in US dollars as well?

    Regards,

    Not sure about CDN pricing, a basic grey scale in the US is going to cost at least $250.

    My standard pricing is $400 for one input (480P), and $550 for 2 inputs (480p and 1080i).

    Pricing and value can vary greatly.

    Regards

    Gregg

    Matthew, a complete calibration on a set like that will generally run you between $400 and $700 Canadian, depending on the number of options you choose.

    Thanks a lot for all the responses, this now gives me a good idea at what I will be looking to spend on calibration.

    Regards,
