How Much Does It Costs
It depends on the person you hire to calibrate your plasma TV. There is not a standard price for this kind of services. As a rough educated guess, I would say it costs about $300 – $400. Best thing is to find a certified installer and find out directly from him exactly how much it will cost you.
Does It Worth the Money?
Depends how much you like your plasma TV or how much you like it after you calibrate it yourself. They are people who don’t even calibrate it and are very happy with it, while others really want to know they are getting the best from it. There are many people who used the services of professional technicians and ware very satisfied by the results – they are visible results. One phrase from ISF site sums it up pretty well. They have the photo of a calibration DVD and near it is written:
This simple $29.95 DVD will definitely improve your HDTV.
