Well, for starters, no matter what the marketing dept tells you, you just bought a LCD TV. So you have all the same problems that LCD TVs have, just a bit thinner.

Shoulda bought a Plasma.

And plasmas still have their problems. imo, the problems of plasma are worse than LCD.

And dont start screaming motion blur either. the samsung that the TC bought can resolve 1080 lines of resolution with zero SOE, and even the top panasonic plasma has trouble doing that.

Oh but those plasma black levels! (Thats the only advantage plasma has anymore. #dealwithit)

Oh. Well that's disappointing. That's maybe a slight chuckle.

What can I say, Laylow? I've posted legitimate concerns, that the excellent moderation team here has seen fit not to moderate thus deeming my posts as within the boundaries of the ToS, and I'm called a troll for it, thrown insults, etc, by the posters here. Doesn't make sense.


And yet you still haven't helped TC


Of course he hasn't helped the TC, his goal was to derail the topic, mission accomplished, while his buddies DeadCell *cough* Astute *cough* and his foot rub specialist Laylow continue to cheer him on.

This is about 7 pages of bickering and about 1 of helpful info.... geez. Gets me thinking maybe I should fine tune my calibration.

A calibration disk and trial and error.

Samsung has the most calibration friendly tvs in the market. may as well make use of it.

Heck my new samsung tvs colors were so accurate out of the box, i barely had to change anything. colors were good to go. i basically only had to adjust the black level and contrast slightly.


Accurate to the eye, or accurate to a meter? Two different things.


Accurate to a meter. C-net (and other reviewers) has tested this TV and claims it to have the most accurate colors of any HDTV in its price range, even more accurate than the equivalent mid-ranged plasmas.

http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/samsung-un46f6300/4505-6482_7-35647675-2.html

When I went to (eyeball) calibrate my TV with my DVE-HD basics disc, I activated the RGB only mode and every color was dead on. I was shocked. My sammy LCD from 2008 required a lot of color tweaking. It took me weeks to get it as close as I could. And that tv only had a "Blue Only Mode" so I had to use the color filter to check the other colors.

The 6300 is a beast of an HDTV.


While it is true that no two displays will accept the same settings the same way, it is a good base. Searching through AVS or HiDefJunkies, or CNet, you're bound to find someone who has posted settings that work for you. From there, it's season to taste. The Disney WoW disc is probably the best disc out there right now. The Essentials disc and Spears & Munsill are good as well, but the Disney disc is perfect for PQ virgins.

Or course, nothing will beat a professional calibration, but if you don't want to or can't spend the money on that, pilfering others' settings and using a retail calibration disc should get you to a good place.


Yeah, professional calibration will yield the best results, but you can get close with a calibration disc if you don't mind spending some time to get to know how it all works. And with Samsung having just about full calibration controls in the user menu, they are some of the best TV's to get the experience with (i.e. you don't have to go into the service menu and risk jacking up your TV)

LCD pixels are hold based, rather than continual refresh, so they will always suffer motion blur, no matter what the resolution.

And I say this owning a LED for my living room and having sold my Plasma - I decided that the Plasma was too big and bulky, despite having the superior picture. I'm just glad I game on LCOS ;P

Nah man I'm legit XD. I got a 6300 series 120Hz


Try the following, let me know what you think:

Backlight: 8
Contrast: 90
Brightness: 45
Sharpness: 20
Color: 52
Tint: G48/R52
Black Tone: Dark
Dynamic Contrast: LOW
Color Space: Auto
White Balance: Leave at factory for now
Gamma: -1
Color Tone: Warm 1

If you search AVS forums, I am sure you can find better settings, especially for some of the advanced settings. I have no idea how the Xbone calibration software is - some say it's great, some say it sucks.


thanks

TC, AVSforum is a great place to get information about calibration settings for your TV.

X1 owners in this thread, just do yourselves a favor and ignore FadingLights and Laylow. These guys never provide a single piece of helpful/useful information and only provide snarky and uneducated responses. If you don't know how to do this, go to one of their replies, hit "message detail" under their name, scroll to the bottom and there is an ignore user option.


Imma check this out thanks
