Maybey that settings are not so good for jour tv.? (it is between jour ears?).
My tv is 65F9000
Try them. Total cost around 15 minutes of effort. If you don't like what you see, hit the "reset".
Many of the recommendations are not specific to your particular set (e.g., turning features/processes on or off). Several can be checked or tweaked with a calibration disk (i.e., brightness, contrast, sharpness). Backlight measurement is definitely per your own environment and not exact. Their recommended "7" is fine for a dark room; but I prefer around "12" for a well lit room.
However, you have a point with regard to white balance and color space adjustments. They are objective values and can be measured/adjusted with a meter and calibration software. Two sets would not be the same. However, your eyes (the measurement that really matters) would not be able to tell the difference between for example White Balance 10 pt submenu Interval 1 Red setting of "-1" or "-2".
In the final analysis, are the CNET settings closer to what you want (do they look better) than factory defaults? I know what a properly calibrated display looks like. I had my first two primary sets professionally calibrated; and I calibrated my third with a colorimeter and professional calibration software (was a newer set and I got numbers/printout as good or better than printouts from the professionals). I decided to try the CNET settings with the F9000 and was very pleased with the results. Definite improvement over factory defaults and I believe the gray scale and colors are as good as I've ever had. With this set and this picture, I definitely won't pay $800 for a new meter and software or $400 for a professional calibration. Not to mention, my wife has threatened me with bodily harm if I "change anything".
As you said, they may not be right for your TV. However, as I said, it only takes around 15 minutes to try and the result may be excellent. Trust you eyes to see if you are happy with the final result.
