Currently using settings from F8000 review

While the settings from the F8000 did improve image quality I'm hopeful this set gets reviewed soon.

I'm getting this TV delivered Saturday. Can you share with me your settings or refer a link?

My calibration preferences so far

In reply to: Samsung UN65F7100

I have tried three published calibration settings in the week I've had my UN46F7100. So far, the one I'm liking best is from Robert Wiley, senior editor, LCDTV Buying Guide. He posts calibrations with his reviews.

So does c|net, but for my taste I'm liking Robert's better.

The link for my 46" is at http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/samsung-lcd-tv/samsung-un46f7100.html

There should be one for 65" on its page.

Two more tidbits

In reply to: Thanks!

This morning I violated one of Robert Wiley's guidelines by raising sharpening to about 10. Everything else looked great, but, overall, I thought the picture was slightly hazy.

He also recommended disabling the auto ambient light feature, which I just enabled so I could compare the two settings.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
