I used your settings on the 40'' and they weren't very good, at all. I now firmly believe that this t.v. is incapable of displaying a nice picture. The typical viewing experience is very dark and blurry.

Color: 51
Tint: g50/r50

Advanced settings
Black Tone: Darkest
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Gamma: 0
Color Space: Auto
White Balance: unchanged
Flesh Tone: 0
Edge Enhancement: Off

Picture Options
Color Tone: Normal
Digital NR: Off

I have considered trying a little more fine tuning, but never got around to it since it really does look great to me as is. Hope this helps!

I forgot to mention that these settings are for the LN46B530.

I used your settings as a starting point and liked it very much. I changed the Contrast and Brightness settings to suit my taste. Here's what I came up with:

Mode: Standard
Backlight: 7
Contrast: 77
Brightness: 46
Sharpness: 0
Color: 51
Tint: g50/r50

Advanced settings
Black Tone: Darkest
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Gamma: 0
Color Space: Auto
White Balance: unchanged
Flesh Tone: 0
Edge Enhancement: Off

Picture Options
Color Tone: Normal
Size: 16:9
Digital NR: Off
HDMI Black Level: Normal
Film Mode: Auto

Note: These settings are used on a LN32B530 with a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250HD settop box.

Obviously, this TV is nowhere near my Pioneer Kuro in terms of picture quality but as my "home office" TV, it's quite acceptable.

Have a Samsung LN46B530, Nice set for the price and what you get out of it. One thing that I did was to spend a large amount of time reviewing all the settings posted all over the net. One thing that no one takes into consideration is that every ones TV viewing setting is not the same and all eyes are not the same, just like hearing. I am at work but I will post my setting When I get home. It is awesome. This setting is in my bedroom. very dark lighting. just like in a movie theater. One misconception is that if you are in a dark room the picture does not have to be as bright. . The brightest that you can get the picture without loosing any PQ is great. It captures a ton of detail. Thats why a theater is so dark, the dark back ground brings the set to life!. This is just my thoughts and findings. I try to match my set with the size of the room its being watch in which makes a big difference. The 46" in the bedroom is perfect for our viewing distance which can make you or break you. I found that that there are a lot of variables that play a big roll in the viewing pleasure you are to get from your TV. And distance plays a big part on the things that you see.

I've noticed a few people using the Standard picture mode. I thought the optimal setting was Movie?

According to this web site you are right about using Movie mode.

http://www.televisioninfo.com/conten...alibration.htm

I tried their settings and I really like them.

Mode: Movie
Backlight: 10
Contrast: 94
Brightness: 43
Sharpness: 0
Color: 50
Tint: g50/r50

These settings below are not covered on that web site, here's what I came up with:

Advanced settings
Black Tone: Off
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Gamma: 0
Color Space: Auto
White Balance: unchanged
Flesh Tone: 0
Edge Enhancement: Off

Picture Options
Color Tone: Normal
Size: 16:9
Digital NR: Off
HDMI Black Level: Low (Normal makes the picture look too "washed up" IMHO)
Film Mode: Auto

Hi all, could someone please comment on the LA32C530 / LN32C530 as a PC LCD? Used for working on as well as Starcraft 2 and Black Ops (multiplayer/competitive).

Or point me in the right direction. I'm desperate for info and have thoroughly searched the forum.

Would the LG 32LD460/550 be a better option?

Thanks very much.

*edit*

Found a LA32C550 SQ02 panel, seems the one to go for after lots of reading.
