It's encouraging what you say though, it suggests the TV can probably can be re-adjusted to improve the picture quality, thanks.

If anyone's looking to try out some reference quality video test clips on their VT60s, AVS User Carlo46 has them for download here. Those LG OLED demo videos look absolutely stunning on my 65VT60 and with those hard to find Pionner Elite demos showcasing the incredible MLL of the VT60 I don't think I'll be upgrading anytime soon

Demo videos to showcase OLED Display (Samsung, LG, sony) The ones they play in stores


Enjoy

Awesome! Thanks for the link. Quickly had a look a the LG ones - wow! I still haven't got around to getting my VT60 calibrated yet. Not sure how much better this thing can look from THX Cinema!

Thanks for the tip buzzard767, I'll check them out. I have tried one of those companies a couple of those people are associated with but they only offered the TV calibration as part of a whole HTS assessment package, not as just a one-off item.

Hi, I've owned the vt65 for a couple of years now and I've always thought the picture seems somewhat blurry when the camera moves, almost like the images on the screen are shaking and not very clear. I had the set professionally calibrated by best buy and I have all the motion smoother stuff off. Maybe I'm just really picky but are there any known issues with this tv? Every review I've read about it is 100% positive. I should add this happens with blu Ray as well.

Thx

I have never had any motion issues, I use motion smoother "weak". What is your viewing distance ?

Yes motion lag or judder is very possible, but you shouldn't see it all the time.

If you haven't tried these adjustments already, you may want to try and see if these help a little.

You may want to try turning off Pixel Orbiter, see link just below.
Official Panasonic VT60/VT65 Series Discussion Thread [No Street Price Talk]

Set your sharpness to 0.
Try 60Hz or 96 Hz.
And of-course you can try motion smoother.

Well I checked out the guys that had the Video Calibration Level 2 (both work for the same company) but they have stopped doing the calibrations as "our equipment has been sold". Unfortunately that seems to be the last option for Singapore.
I was wondering if there are any other "generic" settings available for the VT60 that I could at least try and compare to D-Nices?

Hi, thank you for the info. What is the best screen mode to keep the TV on? Would it be Full or Just? I didn't see a place to change from 60 to 96hz? When I set the Sharpness to 0 the picture seemed to move in slower motion, very juddery if that makes sense. The calibrator set it to 65 so I put it back there for now and I'll play around with it some more. When I look at a person on the screen I see pixelation or something going on around the edges of the person. Not sharp and looks blurry or fuzzy.

Thx,
Brian

It's really not as bad as I'm making it sound :-). I've been watching the TV like this for a while now but I figured I would just pose the question. I'm still playing with the settings and I think I made a slight improvement. Is there a way to copy the Professional setting that best buy created for me and call it Pro 2 or something and then it would let me tweak it?

There you go. A sharpness setting of 65 is just ridiculous and probably criminal for a so called calibrator and his inept attempt.

Hey thanks. The calibrator put his settings in professional 1 and I cannot edit most of his settings. Do you know if I can copy his setting over to professional 2 and tweak from there?
