Hello guys ,
I bought the 42 inch Dynex ($499.99) and a PS3 ($299.99) for my 18th Birthday in October of 2009 and let me just say this it probably was the best gift i bought for for myself ever. My SW VER IS :SLC42KT46-30A1000R I think it's the last 42 inch model before it got discontinued and im looking for the BEST calibration settings i could find for a dark room. My bedroom is in the basement so it's very dark which i enjoy. The TV has been my darling for these past couple of years for the price i paid compared to another Vizio that's in my household is laughable the picture is just better , period.
Im basically a gamer and I watch A lot of sports not A lot of movies though but I do from time to time. Since i bought the TV i have just been using the "Sports" preset never really thought about calibrating it until I found this thread and im looking for the best dark room calibration for it and it'll be great if you guys can help me out with that. My PS3, 360, and FIOS HD looks impressive (especially the PS3) but i get alot of motion blur while watching sports on certain channels and i know that its due to the reason this is only a 60hz TV, but like i previously said playing the PS3 and watching blu-rays on it is where the TV really shines.
I planned on by the end of the summer purchasing my dream TV the Samsung PN50C8000 but it's very expensive and in my opinion wouldn't be smart to purchase especially if you need to buy a car first. The main reason I wanted that TV is because of the impressive plasma black levels, motion interpolation on a plasma, 600hz, the 50" screen, and most importantly for me the 3D. Doing some more research on this great forum i discovered a product called the 3D displayer which basically turns any 60hz/120hz LCD or Projecter into a 3D display. This news basically made me dismiss getting the Samsung at all and most importantly made me love my Dynex even more. I'm gonna stick with her for a while now especially since i know i can do 3D gaming and watch 3D blu-rays. I love the soap effect of motion interpolation and the 120hz/240hz for sports but for right now I will stick with my Dynex and its newly found 3D capabilities until i can afford one of those sets. Some dark room calibrations would be great for me to check out to see the best i can bring out in this set.
sorry for the long rant lol
Thanks in advance.
