Settings Needed: UN50ES6900FXZA

by sjsamsungLED / November 30, 2012 1:19 AM PST

Based on my understanding the SAMSUNG LED UN50ES6900FXZA is a best buy exclusive. That may be why its been so hard for me to find calibration settings. I was hoping that somebody could post their settings if they have the same TV or point me in the direction of settings for a similar model. I'm not thrilled with the picture so far, especially relative to the purchase price

I used the picture settings from CNET for the un55 samsung and tweaked them a little. Works perfect!
