Movie Reviews

An Excellent Product At A Reasonable Price
L. Wong | 01/07/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this DVD once for myself and a second time as a gift to a friend. I used it mainly to adjust the video parameters of my sets. The instructions are simple yet effective with easy-to-understand demonstrations. Once you understand the demonstrations and instructions you will not need to refer to them again, unless you forget them. The menu is also conveniently structured so that you can refer to the instructions and demos then make your adjustments by choosing the corresponding menu options once the instructions are finished.

There are a few topics that are missing (minor). One is coverage on scan velocity modulation. On some sets this is a switchable feature that should be turned off to defeat a set's artificial edge sharpening circuitry. If it is possible to switch this feature off it may actually make the Sharpness/Detail adjustment easier to make by reducing any chance of ghost images on the contours of objects.

Other users may also notice that there is no coverage on the advantages of component or HDMI video connections nor any coverage on upscaling or de-interlacing signals for modern flat panel TVs. This is due to the age of the DVD. To obtain this information, you'd have to obtain a newer calibration DVD. But this is just a minor inconvenience.

All in all, a great buy. I can't complain."
