Thanks, joeracerx. My apologies to your wife.

Ive seen the sharp elite and spent lots of time with it in best buy and my calibrated 8500 I feel has a better picture. Have great holiday matt

I'll give some thought to getting a pro calibration done. Thanks, mattg3. You have happy holidays as well.

OK guys. I purchased a the last 8500 series in Connecticut, a 51". I wanted the 60". All gone. This is replacement for my Panasonic Z1 that was damaged. I set it up with settings found at plasma TV buyers gide. I fired it up after letting it sit in the house for one day. Updates done as of 1/6/15. The first thing I noticed over Panasonic is the LCD effect when getting close to the screen. I didn't know plasma could ever do this. Does Samsung have a thicker glass? It is very strange. After recalibration the picture is brighter and better. The picture looks soft though, good color but un clean lines. One thing that I couldn't figure out is getting into the ten point with calibration. I could only do one line...if that makes sense. I may need to use another pro calibration set up. I need help please.

Hello guys, if you were as lucky as me to get a Samsung F8500 Series before they are all gone, great for you!
I started a Facebook page devoted to this great and last PLASMA TV from Samsung. Feel free to post. There is a Settings page that I have taken from a pro calibration site that I feel looks super.

Using another's settings does not calibrate your tv. At best it is only an adjustment. Every tv is different due to component tolerances and what looks good on one, even the exact same model, could look like crap on yours. Your options for improving pq are:

1. Use a calibration disk to adjust your particular tv for your particular viewing environment. You won't be calibrating it, and will only be able to adjust the basics, but that may be all you need.

2. Learn how to calibrate it yourself using a light meter and specialized software. There's a definite learning curve here.

3. Pay for a professional calibration.

4. Use someone else's settings (not really recommended).

5. Tweak to taste.
