Calibration setting Samsung UE55KS9000

Hello to all, congratulations for the forum. I am new to the forum, my name is Tony and I am writing from Italy. A few days ago I bought an amazing (for me) TV Samsung 55 "- KS9000 curved model. Can you help me to do the right settings? Thanks a lot

There are four ways to adjust or calibrate your panel.

1. Get a calibration disk such as the free AVS HD709 disk or purchase a commercial one and adjust the basic settings yourself. It won't be a calibration but it may be all you need.
2. Purchase a light meter and software and teach yourself how to calibrate. It can definitely be a steep learning curve but very satisfying.
3. Pay for a professional calibration.
4. Tweak to taste.

Borrowing settings from someone else can be an exercise in futility. It may be an ok way to start but you will quickly learn that what looks like "killer" on one panel, may look like crap on yours. The reason being is component tolerances that are set at time of mfr and final QC/QA. They can be very different for each panel, even within the same build. The tolerances can be well within mfr spec but it is very unlikely to find two panels with exactly the same component tolerance settings.

An easy approach would be to pay a professional calibrator to adjust the TV for you.

Here is a list of ISF-certified calibrators located in Italy from the Imaging Science Foundation website:

I wouldn't let that put you off contacting some of them.

Most calibrators travel significant distances for appointments.

In your opinion, what is the reward for a calibration?

Where is your home town? A number of the pro calibrators travel, and if we know where you are at, someone may recommend a pro that visits your location.

If you want easy, just select Movie mode and Warm 2. All the online reviews I can find say that that'll give the most accurate picture out of the box (as is usually the case with Samsungs). Also, it'll give you an idea whether or not you even like a calibrated picture. Not everybody does.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Epson 5030UB, 100" Carada Criterion with Classic Cinema White, Onkyo TX-NR818, NHT Classic 3s, Classic ThreeC, SuperZero 2.1s, Mirage Omni S10, Oppo 103D. Currently boxed up: Denon 1713, Klipsch SW-450,
NHT Absolute Center, Energy Veritas 5.1s, 5.2C, V-Mini-C.
