The integrity of the AVS Forums is at question when users start recommending artificial edge enhancement. What's next? Pan and scan is better because it gets rid of those pesky black bars?
The point of calibrating your display is for the accurate presentation of your source components. Once you have the set alter the signal, it becomes worthless.
Are you actually telling us that Video Processors from Anchor Bay Tech, Lumagen and others are inferior to what you suggest and that they have no place in tweaking edge's, picture noise, compression artifacts or refining PQ and that all those Videophiles/Professionals that pay in the thousands for these products are wasting their money and your settings to ZERO are the target?
Go tell it to the real AV Mensa Pro's in the Video Processor threads and see what they have to say back - setting these to zero is hardly a calibration and insulting people for setting towards their OWN preference leads most to think your arrogant as all hell - personal preference has earned and paid for by that owner and I say screw everyone else that interferes with personal preference and how they spend their money or set their damn TV.
Now as to this D6000. I own last years C6400 55" and it's a secondary TV for the wife and she loves it and I have repeatedly viewed this D6000 for weeks on a wall of all budget panels along with Panny Plasma's, Vizio's, Sony lower end and the D6000 owns the wall providing a day/night better PQ versus all it's budget competition at Target and so for it's budget audience that is the lower cost version it reigns supreme for alot less money than the D8000 but I must admit the Panny plasma made a great mirror as I stood below it that I could comb my hair in but the Samsung destroyed it with the bright lights of Target Video displays and while the Samsung can present some reflections the damn Plasma was a non-stop mirror. Were I in the market for a budget model with higher end PQ I would consider the D6000 easily but for now my market is the 65" HX929 and the High end Sharp 70" when it debuts in a few months.
