New 52XBR4 owner here. Came from a 4 year-old 42" 480p plasma. I am blown away. Outstanding build quality, no pixel issues. I detect some clouding only against a full black image when standing at 80 deg horiz + 70 deg vert off-center. This is better than what I had expected. In fact, the off-angle viewing is very impressive.
Out of the box, SD performance of Comcast signal was terrible. After applying mrlogs's calibration settings, I had the following impressions:
Comcast SD over Tivo (HDMI) = vastly, vastly improved
Comcast HD over Tivo (HDMI) = excellent
Blu-Ray over PS3 (HDMI) = a very good baseline, but probably needs tweaking
Gaming on PS3 (HDMI) = good baseline, may need to be more vibrant?
Gaming on Xbox360 (VGA) = Halo 3 seemed to lack contrast and vibrance
Overall, I think these are awesome baseline settings from which to make further changes. Thanks for posting them!
So far, thrilled with the set. It's amazing.
