Blu-ray calibration disc reviews:


Here’s what the critics say:

“Introduced at the CEDIA show in September, the WOW discs are by far the most extensively comprehensive calibration discs yet offered, in terms of their ability to effectively coach consumers through the process of understanding various video and audio adjustments, as well as providing a wealth of pristine source material that could only come from a media giant such as Disney.” – The AVGuide
“I begrudgingly admit this disc is fantastic.” – The HD Guru (dude, cheer up!)
“WOW: World of Wonder … sets the bar for calibration suites ” – blu-ray.com

Blu-ray calibration disc tips for optimal results:


  • Make the tweaks in the same viewing environment in which you would use your projector
  • The labels for controls used in the instructions may be different from the names used in the menus on your projector. Please refer to your owner’s manual if you have any questions (or call a Projector Expert!)

CE Pro rates the worst DIY Installs

Our friends at CE Pro recently posted a fun slideshow of bad DIY installs. Check it out here»

The setups range from ugly to humorous to downright dangerous. But I have to disagree with CE Pro on the “bad DIY” below. A Lego iPad stand is straight genius.
