Recommended Picture Quality and Color Settings based on Fact not Personal Preferences
Apply's to almost all new Samsung LCD's(LED Backlit ones too).

These settings won't make your picture 'Pop' more.
What they will do is make things more accurate and have more depth when compared to the factory defaults.

Picture Settings:

Movie Mode gives you access to the most amount of picture settings and is the only one that lets you choose the Warm2 color tone.

Color Tone should be Warm2 as this is usually the closet to 6500k and that's what you want.

Color Space, Should be set to Auto. Native is a expanded color space that will change the way colors are suppose to look.

Edge Enhancement should be set to On. Don't be confused by its name. It's actually a chroma smoother and will correct some color artifacts.

Sharpness should be set to 0 on all current Samsung sets. Anything higher will start to "Enhance" the picture by adding white lines around edges.

Auto Motion Plus(AMP) settings are a personal preference, but if you want to see things the way the director intended, it should be Off. If you want the Max Settings without artifacts, set it to 'Custom, Blur Reduction 10, Judder Reduction 3'

Digital NR(DNR) should be Off, because it will soften the picture.

Backlight can be set to anything you want. Set it to a comfortable viewing level.

Contrast should be 88-92. Any higher than 92 and your whites will have more blue in them. Adjust the backlight if you want a darker picture, not the contrast.

Brightness should be 44-47.

HDMI Black Level should usually be set to Low. If things look way too dark then you should switch it to Normal. Keep in mind that this setting is dependent on the program/input type(it might not always be correct on low or normal).

Dynamic Contrast should be set to Off. What it does is crush the whites and blacks to make the picture have more 'Pop'

Black Level should be set to Off, otherwise your going to crush your blacks and won't be able to see everything in dark scenes.

White Balance should be left at the default settings, unless you have a colorimeter to adjust it.

Picture Size should be set to Screen Fit(if your seeing moving white lines on the top of the picture, try 16:9 or 4:3 depending on your program type)

Gamma should be -1 or -2 (in my experience that's usually the correct gamma level for most new Samsung's)

Flesh Tone should be -1(there is usually a slight red push on skin tones when on 0)

xvYCC should be Off unless your Program, TV and Player supports it.

Film Mode should be set to Auto1 unless your seeing strange artifacts, in that case set it to Auto2 for the current movie(but switch it back to Auto1 when your done)

Color should be set from 48-50

Tint should either be G49/R51 or G50/R50

Speaker Settings:

Mode should be Custom

Equalizer should have 100Hz all the way up, and 10Khz in 4 clicks up. (The rest should be centered)

SRS TruSurround should be Off

Auto Volume should usually be Off, because it dynamically alters the volume. And that messes with the way the director setup the sound track.

Setup Menu:

Game Mode should be Off unless your playing a game. Unfortunately when you turn it On, you loose all your Picture/Audio settings and are stuck in Standard mode with Standard as the Color Temp. The settings needed to adjust game mode's picture quality are more then I care to explain right now(It involves compensating using the White Balance controls).

BD Wise should be Off as its a bit buggy and might change your resolution on video content incorrectly.

Energy Saving is the same as adjusting the backlight. I recommend adjusting the backlight instead. The only useful setting is Auto which dynamically adjusts the backlight based on program brightness. It sounds like a good idea, but can crush blacks. Again I suggest adjusting the backlight directly.

Your going to have to set these settings separately for every input.

gbfarley, thanks for these recommended settings. I just want to confirm, for the speaker settings you suggest '4 clicks up' for 10Khz; is that 4 clicks up from the LEFT or from the CENTER?

Many thanks!
