Optimal settings For Samsung UN50RU710D

Just purchased this tv and i love it so far but have heard some differing opinions on best picture settings. Only problem ive really noticed is the backlight turning off on really dark scenes. Any help would be appreciated!

Here's the deal.

One person's optimal is not accepted by all. What you learn is to try them and go with what you feel is optimal.

Agreed buttttt...

Generally with most newer tvs people find a few changes in the default settings that really make a big difference. The main issue ive had is that when its a dark scene the backlight goes out and its really hard to see. Im still toying around w the settings though.

The settings I find to work for me.

And this is not model specific.

1. Most sets. Defaults are fine.
2. and the model in question.

The model looks to be a little rare. Might be some Black Friday special that will take time for someone to do a calibration run and post about it.

Dark scenes are

Often pushing the limits of LCD TVs. If you want to see dark scene performance I like to demo that on Plasma sets but you don't see those for sale today so the next best thing are OLED sets.
