    To get the best use out of this TV, you absolutly need to google the optimal picture settings and use those. The standard settings do not do this TV justice. Here is what I used on my set and the picture quality is perfect for all uses (movies, sports, shows, video games, etc.)

    Settings used:
    Aspect Ratio: 16:9
    Energy Saving: Off
    Picture Mode: Expert 1 (Expert 2 is fine as well, these are just 2 slots to store an advanced profile and access the advanced settings)
    Contrast: 77 (will likely change after Picture Wizard but this is a good starting point)
    Brightness: 53 (will likely change after Picture Wizard but this is a good starting point)
    H. Sharp: 39 (will likely change after Picture Wizard but this is a good starting point)
    V. Sharp: 50
    Color: 50
    Tint: 0
    Color Temp: W30 (This setting is hidden to find it, click on tint-->you will get the gray bar at the bottom of the screen to adjust tint-->press the down arrow and there it appears

    Now select Expert control
    Dynamic Contrast: Off
    Noise Reduction: Off
    Gamma: Medium
    Black Level: Low
    Film Mode: On
    Color Gamut: Standard
    Edge Enhancement: Off
    White Balance: Warm
    Method: 20 Point IRE
    Pattern: Outer

    Now comes the IRE part. This part is a bit confusing in how it is implemented. Basically, each time you select an IRE value treat the values below it as a new set of values. Why they did it this way I have no clue. Anyways here are the values (as you will see some are REALLY far off):
    Also incase you can't figure it out r=red g=green b=blue.
    5 ire r=0 g=0 b=0
    10 ire r=-16 g=0 b=-36
    15 ire r=0 g=0 b=0
    20 ire r=-17 g=-13 b=-34
    25 ire r=-9 g=0 b=-37
    30 ire r=-6 g=9 b=-29
    35 ire r=0 g=0 b=-13
    40 ire r=9 g=17 b=-25
    45 ire r=0 g=0 b=0
    50 ire r=-10 g=0 b=-42
    55 ire r=-18 g=0 b=-10
    60 ire r=15 g=20 b=-37
    65 ire r=-18 g=0 b=0
    70 ire r=5 g=30 b=-31
    75 ire r=-9 g=9 b=-29
    80 ire r=-6 g=19 b=50
    85 ire r=0 g=0 b=0
    90 ire r=-8 g=16 b=-9
    95 ire r=0 g=0 b=0
    100ire r=-5 g=0 b=-24

    Red color 0
    Red tint -1
    Green color -6
    Green tint 0
    Blue color -8
    Blue tint 0
    Yellow color -5
    Yellow tint 11
    Cyan color -2
    Cyan tint -2
    Magenta color -3
    Magenta tint -10

    There we go. As you can see it will take some work to enter these in. Don't forget after entering these to run the picture wizard to tweak the brightness and contrast and stuff. After all of this you will have an AMAZING lifelike set.

    PS: All TVs should have this done because even the best TV makers design their presets to sell the TVs not to have the most natural look (vivid sells in the store but looks like garbage at home).

    After a lot of reasearch, this was my pick. Since day one, (8 months old now), I still have "doughy" faces on people. I have calibrated, read review magazines self help articles, and cannot get nice clean faces. Looks like the faces were modeled with silly putty. However, blueray is excellent! Games are great also. I was very concearned with glare, with 2 large windows, but this has turned out to be a non issue. Just bugs me.

                                            The only problem That I have had with this T.V. is the image burn. Other than that the picture and functions are great!
