Do you remember what any of the settings were that you changed? I just got one last night and did some very minor adjustments to color, sharpness, backlight. It looks pretty good to my eye, but I'm sure it can be tweaked further.
I watched part of LOTR, the more recent POTA movie, and some TV on it last night. The Blu-Ray movies looked fantastic. I also put up a pure white screen, didn't see any hot spots and the uniformity was a lot better than the Samsung 65H6350 I currently have. The Sammy on a pure white screen does show some shadowing in the corners.
I had the lights way down and didn't see anything like the backlight bleed I'm used to seeing on older LCD TVs.
The only thing that I noticed, and it might also be due to the larger screen, is somcolor banding on screens where the color fades from one shade to another. My Blu-Ray player has a purple screen that goes from light to dark, and I could see it there. Pretty sure it was there on the Sammy too, but I'll hook it up to the Sammy tonight and see how it looks on there. Or maybe it's just a crappy color background on the player, who knows
