I am pretty amazed at the range of tastes in terms of TV appearance. I'm surprised that anyone who wants to set dynamic contrast on, backlight 8 and contrast 100 could like the same TV I do. I was using backlight 2, energy saving medium, and black level adjust low. Gamma to +2 or +3 to compensate.
I don't think I could possibly live with that level of lightness of my blacks.
I was one that posted those settings, and it is pretty bright...but I get use to it easily, even in a dark room. I just like my screen bright. The thing is, I only like that when I'm playing games, because if you set it darker you can't see some of the objects when it's a darker/night-time setting.
In movies I have been using similar settings to cnets or evil's.
Also, the blacks look pretty good to me with those dynamic settings for games. I swapped back and forth between standard/movie and the dynamic settings I had, and the blacks look pretty similar.*shrug*
