SiGGy says his 65" AUO has good contrast ratio 5000:1. I have a meter and can measure mine, and would be happy if it get 5000:1.
If you feel the image is lacking contrast, try a lower gamma setting. Because gamma decreases when you sit off axis, you might need to use a lower number, like, -3 or -2. Or just use the swivel stand to point it wherever you're sitting. And don't view in a pitch black room. Even plasmas don't look black in pitch black room. You could even try bias lighting behind the TV for extra oomph.
Check out AVSHD709 test patterns
, in particular the pattern for setting black level to make sure black level is set as low as possible without losing the bottom few shades.
For a quick n dirty white balance calibration, set colour to 0, then flick through the white balance presets (Cool, Normal, Warm1, Warm2) and choose the one that looks the most neutral coloured.
If you want to calibrate it further, adjust only the Gains using additive rules. eg. if picture is tinted yellow (yellow=red+green) then reduce red+green in equal amounts, or alternatively raise the other one (blue). Try to avoid reducing green as much as possible because green makes up 72% of the brightness of white and you will lose more peak brightness that way.
Also I like Dynamic Contrast set to Low. I think SiGGy likes that too.
Also on the models over here, Normal/Standard picture mode has global backlight dimming, whereas Movie mode does not. So you may prefer the Normal/Standard picture mode for deeper blacks on dark scenes.
