Ming Thein lost me when he said he calibrated his monitor accurately by eye and said that calibration hardware was unneccessary. Then, in almost every review, he put how he's judging files on a calibrated system.
But I still read his stuff. I just don't give it any more credibility than anyone elses just because the pictures are nice and the font on his site is attractive. He certainly is a decent photographer and I like his post processing. But he's in it for the money like most of the others. And that reflects in his "opinions".
