i found the 2.2 gamma better than the 2.6 as directed a few pages back. sure my eye might be off, but he 2.6g looked too dark. i got my new replacement 55st50 in on thursday. i currently have the color slides playing (on custom mode with NO adjustments), and will continue to run the sides for 200 hrs continous. then i will have BB come out and dial in the color settings. i get it fee with my silver premier membership (if its even work a crap). i also have the cnet specs, as ll as the couple of you who posted your settings. ill try and do a side by side by side by side.
ive been told i have a great eye, i do showcar work for one of the big3 auto companies and i do the inspections (paint) for any defects (scratches in the clear, oddities in the base, anything not show worthy).so its safe to say i have an eye for perfection. but does not compar to a calibration device i supppose.
