    A pro calibration is relative to how badly set up your plasma and tv are in the first place.
    If you are desperatly unhappy with the picture quality then a calibration will make a significant difference. If how ever you have a plasma that has been well set up at source then a calibration will only make a small difference. In both cases though you should be able to see a difference, even if it is a small one.
    I had mine done by gordon, and trust me If I could not see a diffrenec I would have let him know :D

    Phil,

    Many thanks for the nice words ( and I didn't pay you a penny for them!).

    David,

    You only have to look at your past postings to know that you have done the research and know how to set up a plasma yourself - yet Gordon improved it - Q.E.D.,

    ISF calibration works.

    Yes
    I confess.
    I got jealous.:blush:
    If there were an isf technician in my country i would spend the money coz i believe it deserves it.
    But you see, Cyprus is 10 years behind, in terms of technology. :mad:

    and with quite a bit of interest from the Cardiff area there may be scope for some "travel sharing" if calibrations can be done immediately after the Bristol show ;)

    Having spent my honeymoon in Cyprus 22 years ago I would love to go back - But Ayia Napa ain't what it was then - a relatively undeveloped jewel - not a nightclub in sight, just some great hotels and an idyllic beach. :D :D :D

    I think you re right Pier.
    Ayia Napa is now full of night clubs and thousands of tourists visit it in the summer just for night fun.
    I don t like this kind of holiday neither.
    There is another place near ayia Napa, called Protaras which is just like agia napa 10-15 years before.
    Much more beautiful and quiet place than ayia napa.
    And I m not saying this just to convince you to come and calibrate my tv.
    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
    It s the truth.

    Well?
    Will you come? :D

    Leerock, Piers is calibrating my 434 this coming Sun or Mon. I will try to convince him... ha! However, should I "fail".. I would recommend you also contact the two ISF trained people in Greece. Most likely they could do the trip to Cyprus. See www.imagingscience.com.

    Thanks Costas
    I ve emailed the greek ISF dealer but they most likely can t offer this service in Cyprus unless I pay for the trip
    which makes us
    100 p + 250 p = 350 p. :D
    I think thats a lot money for ISF.
    I m happy with the PQ though. :)
