5 reasons you’d be mad NOT to calibrate your flat screen TV

When it comes to your top rated flat screen TV better picture is always. . . well, better. The benefits are obvious when you’re watching a Blu-ray movie, or streaming your photos, or catching an episode of your favorite TV show.

But what about when you’re in the grips of some strange madness that only occurs in March? Some people won’t even change their shorts for fear that it will cause their bracket to collapse. What could possibly make you want to take the time to mess with calibration settings in the lead-up to the final 15 games of the season?

We’ve got five reasons for you right here.

1. You’ve got to do something between games

What else are you going to do while you wait for the next round? Since you’ve already spent so much time in front of the TV, it’s the perfect chance to spend a little more.

2. No, they haven’t introduced a new gimmick

While your top rated flat screen TV might make it seem like they’ve added a microchip to today’s basketball, a good calibration will make you realize that broadcasters have not started blurring the basketball so you can follow it.

3. Basketball is not played in perpetual twilight

That was just your brightness settings.

4. Be able to tell the difference between team colors

You’ll find that your green levels are off, and that Syracuse isn’t playing against itself in the sweet sixteen. There is actually crimson on the court.

5. Prove just how productive March has been

The most common complaint about the insanity that is March is that nothing seems to get done. Well, now you can prove those naysayers wrong by showing off how clear your picture is.

Now that you’ve got the reasons, it’s time to actually do it! Check out this post for helpful tips to get you started. If you’re not quite the DIY type (and you happen to live near a Vann’s store in Montana), Vann’s has trained technicians who can help you get it done right.

Bonus reason! If nothing else, once you’ve gotten through the final games on your top rated flat screen TV, Opening Day is only a few days away.
