Nice to see a dimmable full-array backlit TV that's also affordable.

ran across this on new Vizio coming out in 2014 http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20131218PD217.html

I don't know if the new 4K's coming out will be passive or active 3d because sharp is making the panels.
I wonder what the price is going to be for the 70 with local diming.

If anyone gets this, i'd love to hear feedback on it/what settings are good. I just picked one of these badboys up at Sam's Club for $568.88+tax. So far I don't see many reviews on the web or threads on here.

I realize that calibration settings are largely affected by viewing environment. Also, I found that the "normal" color temperature setting is a bit too warm, and "cool" is a bit too cool, so I averaged the two settings, and found the results to be pleasantly warm.

I've had the TV for about a week now, also picked up from Costco, and so far I'm very happy with it. Nice picture, and blacks are darker than on the 7 year old 46" Samsung DLP that it replaced. The remote sucks, but the only thing it's used for is changing the input until I can get around to reprogramming my Harmony, which handles everything else through the cable box and receiver.

Here are my settings.

Picture Settings Menu
Picture Mode: Calibrated Dark
Backlight: 60
Brightness: 70
Contrast: 65
Color: 55
Tint: -7
Sharpness: 40

Color Temperature Menu
Color Temperature: Custom
Red Gain: 500
Green Gain: 492
Blue Gain: 466
Red Offset: 517
Green Offset: 512
Blue Offset: 513

Advanced Picture Menu
Auto Brightness Controll: Off
Black Detail: Low
Smart Dimming: On
Reduced Signal Noise: Off
Reduce Block Noise: Medium
Film Mode: Auto

May I ask why you're using Calibrated Dark with such dark Brightness? What are your room conditions?
