What are you unhappy with? Generic settings are not likely to satisfy your specific needs.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Hello,
During the first 150 hours, I would not exceed 80 for Contrast. In addition, I refrained from watching 3D and only watching 1:78 source material as well during break in.

Here are Cnet's settings:
"
Calibration notes: As with last year's ST30 we performed a full calibration in Custom mode to discover that the colors were too inaccurate to continue. As a result we reverted to default Cinema mode with only small adjustments to Contrast and Brightness. While we found this mode sacrifices fidelity on high whites for light levels with lots of crushing though we weren't able to detect any detrimental effect on program material. The output level didn't quite meet 40foot-Lamberts and we expect the larger models to be even dimmer.

--Picture menu
Picture mode: Cinema
Contrast: +100
Brightness: +50
Color: +50
Tint:0
Sharpness: 0
Color temp: Warm 2
Color mgmt: Off [grayed out]
C.A.T.S.: Off
Video NR: Off



-- Aspect adjustments submenu
Screen format: Full
HD size: Size 2
H size: [grayed out]
Zoom adjustments: [grayed out]

-- HDMI settings: [no change from default]

--Advanced picture submenu
3D Y/C filter: Off [grayed out]
Color matrix: HD [grayed out]
Block NR: Off [grayed out]
Mosquito NR: Off
Motion smoother: Off
Black level: Light
3:2 pulldown: On
24p Direct in: 60Hz"

I am quite surprised their Contrast is so high as on their review of my GT50, I believe Contrast as specified around 85. I would decidedly recommend a Calibration Disc as well.
Cheers,
JJ
