Well, I've got both the 55W900a and the 65W850a here now! Both are calibrated. So far, I think I like the picture on the 900a better, but it's splitting hairs at this point. I've been noticing a bit more motion blur and black crush pixelation on Uverse on the 65w850a. Didn't see it that readily on the 900. I'm sure a bit more tinkering should get it. We'll see!
For reference, I've been using the settings posted on this site, as well as another that's escaping my memory at the moment. I then used DVE: HD Basics (blu-ray disc), Xbox One built in calibration tool and the THX app for iOS to check. I always feel good when I see my settings mostly sticking between tools. Then, as asinine as it may sound, I then usually tweak it just a bit to get the picture I want. Nothing too dramatic, but I do like having the bright whites on. I've never been a big fan of swapping viewing modes, so I try to nail one down to how I like to watch.
I do wonder if I should be more willing to calibrate multiple modes; I have been enjoying Titanfall. The impulse mode is just so dark in comparison to the others, even if I crank up the backlight. I'm not noticing an input lag on the game, like I did with my old tv. After playing MLB 13: The Show on a different set for most of last year's baseball season, moving it to my previous Samsung proved that I couldn't hit a pitch in the game - very obvious lag. Not as easy to discern when my gaming "technique" in Titanfall is "run around crazy and just shoot anything that moves."
Should I really be calibrating multiple profiles?
As an aside, I never actually say "splitting hairs" in person, but I've said it twice in this thread. You learn something new about yourself everyday!
