After previously running through the "Basic" WOW calibration (settings posted earlier in this thread), I took a run through the "Advanced" this morning. Here are the results:
- Mode: Movie
- OPC: Off
- Backlight: +5 (this is not calibrated, per se, and is up to the user to set at whatever level is desired)
- Contrast: +32
- Brightness: +1
- Color: +7
- Tint: +4
- Sharpness: +2
In the Advanced Menu:
- Color Temp: Middle
- Gamma: -2
- Various enhancements, including Film Mode: All OFF
In the A/V sync section, I adjusted the surround sound to a 125ms delay.
I am now running the second WOW disc of HD "eye candy" (all of the various landscape scenes), and it is just utterly stunning. Crazy good!!
Regarding the various "issues," the only one that I really notice is the diminished off-angle viewing, at >30 degrees off-center, but it's not an issue for me, as I am always in the "sweet spot." I have noticed some very minor clouding, slight cross-hatching, slightly darkened corners, at times, but they are barely even noticeable, even when looking hard, and have no impact on the PQ. I consider them non-issues.
Again, this panel blows me away. I highly, highly recommend it!
