    Does anyone have this tv, and have it calibrated? What are your settings? I ask because mine seem a bit high using the Sound and Vision calibration disc.

    I am looking to get this very television soon (once I complete my stand). Anyway, here is something I saved to a text file on my desktop a while ago. I am still going to calibrate with an Avia disc, but I figured this could be a reference:
    Avia result setting for samsung TV Page
    Mine are
    Contrast 36
    Brightness 38
    Sharpness 10
    Color 26
    Tint 55/45
    The result is quite dark but I really like it, but maybe I'll brigten it a little, but the image is so clean it's really amazing.

    Thanks! Mine were actually pretty close to that. Will give it a try. Also, what are the advantages of turning off VSM? And where did you find those test results?

    I've never done it myself, but I've read time and time again that VSM makes edges of the picture look bad. Lowering or turning VSM off makes for sharper edges. I'm going to try it once I get my Samsung as I heard the results are amazing.
