My System
I own the Sony 55" KDL-55HX800 and had a ISF certified tech come in and calibrate it. To be honest I prefer the standard setting that is already preset in the display. Vivid or torch mode as some call it was just too much and the calibrated version was just a tad too dull for me.

Re: Sony KDL picture settings help

As anyone tried this for a tune up?

For $1.99 app on your smart phone or iPad, this might help
