    Bryan there are some great threads on this topic. I started one not to long ago and was pointed to this post...

    From what I understand, on a new set, it would be a waste of money. The set is going to burn in and drop in contrast / brightness by a large factor in the first 6 months to a year. That will in turn cause the isf calibration to faulter rather quickly. Considering the cost of the calibration $300-$500 I would think you want to wait. Supposedly if you do it at the 6 month or 1 year mark the calibration will last longer and be more correct. At least thats my take, I could be wrong.

    Bryan,
    Although it doesn't entirely answer your question, you should read this archived thread before deciding on ISF calibration or calibration technician:
