    I just got a quote for my Pioneer HD720 ..

    $500 bucks from an ISF Person - seems reasonable to me...

    Any Opinions?

    Hello Ed,

    At the very least, one should expect the following adjustments to be performed for a $500.00 calibration.

    1. White balance for one scan rate (480p, 1080i, etc.)

    2. User menu control adjustments

    3. Overscan

    4. Convergence

    5. Electrostatic focus

    6. Mechanical focus

    7. Glare-screen removal

    8. Optics cleaning

    9. SVM disablement

    10. Lenstriping

    Good luck!

    Eliab

    If you're interested in having your Pioneer calibrated, you might also contact Gregg Loewen who is a video calibrator as well as a forum Administrator here. He is in your area and does offer full service calibrations. I am positive he will be price-competitive for any or all of the services listed below. He has gotten excellent reviews from some other forum members.

    I too had my Toshiba 40H80 calibrated by Gregg Loewen and he did a fantastic job, click on the link Steve Dinn made in the above message.

    Wow!! A fan club [​IMG]
    Ed, I sent you an email.
    Eliab, is right on the money, you can pay $500 and get nothing beside grey scale via an optical comparitor, or pay $500 and get a "full meal deal" by somebody using a color analyzer, HD signal generator, etc and performing the "extra" services as Eliab has listed.
    BTW, a ISF calibration only includes grey scale adjustment and front panel controls.
    Regards
    Gregg Loewen
