It's new, needs time to break in. Noticed the same on mine now it's smoothed out.

I would say sharpness at 0 to 5, or possibly up to 10 if you must but you will get a unnaturally sharp picture with anything over 5 or 6.

A lot of people here have their sharpness between 10 and 20. But if you are going to use DCV, you lose a little detail(not much on Low setting). Crank it to your liking. If you think its too high, bring it down. A lot of this also depends how far you are sitting from the television. Im a good 10-12ft from my tv so my sharpness is either at 15 or 20. 15 for blu and 20 for Directv. Some people who sit closer will be between 0 and 10

Sharpness: settings can be different for every set, and change after calibration. Minimum 5, Maximum 25.
Video quality - decide AFTER you have 1000 hours on the set! This is not a 100 Hour LED/LCD!

OK, well i upped my sharpness, and the picture is not soft at all anymore. I basically stayed close to zero based on what most here have, but that didnt cut it for me. 30 is the sweet spot for me! Hey, its what i like, im sure most here will cringe with sharpness that high. I had dynamic contrast on too! Not sure how that happened, So NOW I have the TV i was expecting! As soon as my wife looked, she even noticed. Amazing how just a few lil changes can affect the picture. Thanks guys, now its time to enjoy!
