AVS forum has better settings IMO

Personally I didn't care for rtings settings. I have this tv and have found these settings to be much better for my viewing. They are:
TV Brightness: Brighter
Picture Mode: Normal
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Backlight: 100
Brightness: 42
Contrast: 100
Sharpness: 66
Color: 55
Tint: 0
Color Temperature: For daytime or bright room use: Normal or Cool. The colors really pop, and the whites are shimmering.
For night-time or dark room: Warm. if watching in a dark room, or say the late shows, the cool or normal settings make the tv almost blinding to watch. Warm tames them a bit. More plasma like whites.
