Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Sharp LC-60LE757U in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: Having had poor results from using the Quattron's extra colors in the past I disabled them for this review. This lead to some challenges particularly after completing the calibration. While the calibrated chart looks dead-on the results were less than optimal. We calibrate our TVs to 70IRE as this is out standard and most behave very well as a result. The LE757 behaved unusually in regards to Cyan after calibration, and while you can choose not to use our calibration it's likely that you might find issues with color response elsewhere in the default Movie mode.
