I tried the pic settings for LW5600..
by Boboflion / October 12, 2011 2:42 PM PDT

After I bought a 47LW6500, I tried the Cnet pic settings for LW5600 because Cnet said the systems were almost identical and to do so. However, the setting was 95% complete because the screen options were not the same. The picture was worse than the vivid setting. I went to tweak my tv.com but they did not have my model or anything in the same family. Does anyone have any suggestions for pic settings for the LG LW6500 series?
