My TV has developed some fairly strong clouding, that wasn't apparent over the last year I've had the TV, so it must have started to get worse recently. So, in my attempts to set things on the TV to disguise this, I spent a lot of time playing with the menu. During this time, I think I've come accross what I think is a really nice list that may interest anyone with this TV. The colors, contrast and inky blacks simply pop more now than with settings I've used in the past, and with a minimal loss of detail from black crush. So, give these a try and let me know what you think. You may be suprised how well this looks:
Mode: movie, warm2.
Backlight: 6 (5 is good if you prefer it softer)
Dark Tone: Darkest
Smart LED on.
Dynamic contrast: Low
The gamma offsets the dark tone, allowing for what seems to be a wider range of inky blacks, without huge amounts of black crush.
