Pros BEAUTIFUL picture, now that I have the settings I like for the picture. Your mileage may vary, but I like: energy saving: off, contrast: 67, brightness: 55, sharpness: 30, color: 62, tint: green 7, color temperature: cool 5.
Cons The factory defaults for contrast, etc. were really bizarre, at least for my room. Who uses a contrast setting of 100% So, I spent way too much time finding good settings. But it was worth the effort.
SummaryMaybe something more like brightness: 58, color: 58, is better, keep other settings mentioned above.

Updated on May 22, 2012Being a tweak-aholic, these are my final settings:
contrast: 75, brightness: 70, sharpness: 30, color: 54, tint: green 10, color temperature: cool 30. Gives BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL results.
(Exceptions: ESPN studio footage seems to be color heavy, but still quite nice with these settings, but live sporting events on ESPN come in great with these settings. With olde tv series on Netflix, all bets are off, but the settings I listed are a darn good starting point.)
Updated on Jul 11, 2012OK, final tweaks. Last settings were dealing with yellow lawn on putting greens. Better general settings: contrast: 75, brightness: 68, sharpness: 33, tint: green 4, color temperature: 0.
For my Roku Netflix, same except tint is about 22 green; weird, I know. Also, color: 52.
