I guess my point is that taking settings from another set and then "tweaking them to your liking" always stumps me. The sets all differ. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a "reference number" guy. Unless you plan to design something for transfer to print or other media on this set, I'm more of a "make it look good to you" person. Neither is right or wrong.

As has been said here before, reset your TV to factory, start with either calibrated or calibrated dark, save to a new custom setting, and 'tweak away". Copying settings from another set isn't going to do a whole lot better IMO without the tools listed above.

Like said, just one man's opinion and we all have them. I'll never understand people waiting around for someone else to "publish settings" from unknown rooms and conditions, and from a different panel. Calibrated and calibrated dark get you there much more quickly.
I've used other users calibration settings off this site for many of my TV's and they've always given me some of the best looking pictures I've ever had. To me, someone elses settings are a starting point. From there I'll use a Calibraton disk and fine tune, but usually other users settings have been pretty spot on. As long as you're matching the TV and size, especially in Vizio's case where each set can have different components.

I see you have 6 posts yet you say you've used settings of many others. Perhaps you should contribute.
