59? Wow. When you say you use a test pattern, which one do you mean? Apart from checking the the contrast ramps for any clipping and/or banding, I set colour by calibrating, not by eye. I know mine's a different set to yours, but colour's an even 50 for me.
Might as well chuck in my latest 55" settings after calibration, which to my surprise produces an incredible black level, even in a completely dark room. Using an Oppo 95 set to YCbCr 8-bit (and no damned Darbee).
