"It was a pleasure to deal with Vincent at HDTVTest. He really knows what he is doing, explaining the process to me efficiently and clearly and setting my Sony Bravia KD65XE9305 to the perfect industry-standard for HDMI, UHD, Dolby Digital, Apps (streaming) in day and night viewing modes. Original and calibrated settings were then provided by email for future reference and of course in case of TV software reset.
The changes Vincent made have made a huge difference to my viewing: video is now so natural/lifelike and without the slightly blue cast that the Klein K-10A & Calman5 measurement illuminated clearly and that seems so obvious now! I'm so much more drawn in to what I am watching because of this.
Worth every penny, would deal with again!
"Had a great afternoon spent with the guru himself, Vincent calibrated my 2018 Sony AF8 and Oppo 205 and I now have a perfect reference picture , the cinema pro setting on the Sony AF8 is near perfect but a calibration makes it perfect, Vincent spent the time going through what he was doing and it was nice to see the end result.
Top job Vincent keep up the great work 👍👍"
"Vincent calibrated my newly purchased LG B7 OLED TV. I was initially somewhat on the fence about whether or not it would be worth it but after seeing the results I am in awe of how much of a difference it makes.
A good portion of time was spent explaining the variety of settings and the process that was undertaken to help calibrate the TV. I was then able to see how the calibrated settings compared to the previous settings and the difference was night and day.
Cannot recommend Vincent enough as he does such a thorough job whilst explaining in step in detail."
"Vincent was professional and explained the process in great detail. The result is really pleasing and we know we are now getting the best out of our OLED panel.
Well worth the investment.
Thank you Vincent for an excellent job!"
"Vincent took the time to explain everything. Showed you what he was changing and why. Then at the end showed the before and after results. I was just blown away. Such a wonderful guy and fantastic service. He really does get the best picture out of your screen. Thankyou"
"Whole process was quick and very well explained. Vincent showed me all the changes he made (LG C7) and talk me through it.
It's worth to add that some shows are bit too dark but I believe is from the show itself.
In general, worth the money.
"Vincent is so passionate about his work, he talks you through everything he is doing in an easy to understand way, and ensures you are happy with the results. My LG OLED looks fantastic since he calibrated it - and he demos very satisfying before/after tests to show what he's done."
"Vincent is such a polite and knowledge person. Having him calibrate our TV truly was an experience and especially satisfying for a mild perfectionist like myself.
I would recommend Vincents services to anyone who cares about getting the best from the probably quite expensive TV you just bought."
"My tv had a pretty good picture out of the box but not great, so I decided to contact Vincent from hdtvtest, glad I did, this guy knows his stuff. He turned up at the arranged time with all his gear and began to calibrate my tv explaining what the new settings would do for the picture. After an hour or so you could see how balanced the colours were, more depth and clarity even with sharpness at 0, no on screen artifacts and motion is great. I have watched all sorts of content, sports and movies and after the calibration in a nutshell superb.
I would not hesitate getting Vincent round again to calibrate another tv for me, if you own a premium tv and want to get best out of it contact Vincent and he will do his stuff."
"Vincent arrived on time to calibrate my lg oledc7 and e6, first thing I would say he is a perfectionist, he spent as long as it took to get the settings perfect and took time to explain everything he was doing and for what reason. After the calibration was complete we viewed some videos with both the new settings and the old settings I had been using, the difference was night and day, he let me make up my own mind before he pointed out the improvements that had been made between the new and old settings. The calibrated settings added more depth and natural colour to the picture, I've had no need to use anything but the dark room settings in SDR content. The near black performance has improved greatly with massive improvements in shadow detail. I would recommend Vincent without any hesitation what so ever, if you want the best out of your TV Vincent is the man to see."
"Vincent calibrated my Sony XE93 back in April this year, so i’ve now had a little while to live with the changes, and I have to say i’m extremely impressed with the results. Colours now pop more, and the image has more depth, whilst still retaining a natural look.
Vincent is not only very knowledgeable, but is also very personable, and talks you through every stage of calibration (showing before and after for each of the tweaks and changes he makes)
Whilst having your TV professionally calibrated may not be cheap, for anyone who is a home cinema enthusiast or cares about the accuracy of the content they watch, I would highly recommend having it done, and more specifically using Vincent.
I would not hesitate to recommend Vincent, and I would definitely use him for any future TV purchases."
"I initially setup my Sony A1 OLED out of the box and tinkered with the picture settings myself but couldn’t get it quite right; skin tones looked too red and whilst PS4 Pro games looked a lot sharper due to being displayed on an OLED, they looked washed out and lacked depth and pop.
I contacted Vincent after watching some of his YouTube videos. He was very professional and arrived on time and began to setup his equipment. He talked through the entire process and explained the reasoning for all of the adjustments he was making as he made them. I didn’t realise just how skewed the colours were out of the box (far too much blue) until Vincent talked me through the process and showed me what my TV was pumping out via the graphs on his software.
He calibrated Day, Night, Game, HDR and Dolby Vision modes and every one is a massive improvement. I wanted to wait a few days to get used to the settings and view more content. Now playing God of War on PS4 Pro looks amazing, the graphics have so much depth now that just simply wasn’t there prior to this calibration. Netflix in general looks brilliant and in particular Altered Carbon looks unreal in Dolby Vision! Likewise 4K Blu-rays like Mad Max and Terminator 2 look incredible.
If you have spent a significant sum of money on a new TV then I advise employing Vincent’s services; he is a true professional and perfectionist who loves what he does and you will not regret it."
"This was well worth it, Vincent calibrated our 75" Samsung Q9FN, a very expensive purchase which I now feel we are getting our complete money's worth from. I had no idea how washed-out and unnatural the pre-calibration image had been, now content of every kind has been given a new lease of life.
Vincent is exceedingly polite and was able to simultaneously calibrate the tv and answer my many questions about tech, his Youtube channel and other topics. Couldn't recommend this service highly enough!"
"Vincent is a really nice guy. He really knows his stuff and explains what he’s doing and why it improves the picture. After Vincent had changed all settings the picture looked amazing and I’m really enjoying going through my back catalogue of blu-rays Netflix 4K shows. Get it done, well worth it."
"Many thanks to Vincent from HDTVTest. He was very friendly and described every step of calibration. I am very happy with the results. Blu Rays & games look incredible. I would highly recommend HDTVTest if you are interested in accurate picture. I will happily use their services again for future TVs."
"Great service from Vincent, and significantly improved picture in many subtle but important ways. TV now a pleasure to watch"
"The Panasonic 58DX902 is a fantastic TV but I felt I was just lacking something in the picture quality with my SkyQ and UHD BluRay player. Vincent came over and we had a great morning chatting over all things AV whilst he calibrated the TV.
When comparing my own settings and the calibrated ones, there was a noticeable difference and improvement.
Extremely happy with the services that I received."
"Vincent was very professional, courteous and friendly during his time with me. He spent around two hours calibrating my Panasonic 58dx902b for SD, HD and 4K. He also set night and day viewing.
The difference in image is, for me, most noticeable in contrast and an enhanced sense of depth coming from the screen. Blacks are more balanced and the image sharper but never artificially so.
Even when you are purchasing a higher end TV, it will come with some level of compromise - the manufacturers don't fine tune each individual set, and they don't know the home environment it'll be used in. The benefits of the calibration counter these points, and the true potential is released.
It has been many weeks since Vincent worked his magic, and yet I still find myself marvelling at the improvements.
Absolutely worth the outlay if you want your TV to shine as it should."
"Vincent did a great job with my calibration, I thought I had a very good picture before but since calibration the picture seems much more accurate & colours especially seem to pop more, so much so that I’m in the process of re-watching all my movie collection.
Vincent is a really nice & friendly guy who takes the time to take you through the whole process so you know what he is doing.
Well worth doing if you own a quality TV."
"It's the second time Vincent has calibrated one of my TVs.
This time it was the Panasonic 55EZ952 OLED.
Although this TV is quite accurate out of the box, the results after calibration were very impressive.
The colour accuracy is perfect. Shadow detail has also improved. There was also a big improvement on motion blur.
As usual, Vincent was amicable and explained every step of the calibration.
If you have a decent TV, let Vincent do it justice and have it calibrated."
