Sony KDL-55W900A

Calibration report using these settings:

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Sony KDL-55W900A 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: The W900 misses out on the W800's advanced setup options and so the only real decisions were whether to institute Advanced Contrast Enhancer or not. Given that the effect on Gamma was minimal and theblack level improved I decided to keep it.
