The HQV HDTV Benchmark Disc

A true hi-def aficionado knows that just buying an HDTV and then getting drunk with your pals while you watch a Mets game is not the way to go when it comes to buying a new TV. Luckily, HQV shares the same distinctive taste with these HDTV fans and has created a disc in both Blu-Ray and HD DVD format for calibrating a new HDTV.

Each disc contains various tests and assessment tools to make sure the TV you’re about to purchase is optimal. If a store like Best Buy doesn’t let you bring in a disc like this and test it, then they’re out of their mind and you should simply take your business elsewhere. Each DVD costs $20 and could end up saving you a lot more than that if it keeps you from buying a crappy HDTV.
