I know someone asked recently the best settings to use for a non-pro ISF calibration being done. I started out using the THX Cinema setting but after having the display for 1 week using the slides and various TV viewing to burn-in the display, I finally got a chance to plug in the CNET settings. I was a little surprised to see an improvement of the CNET settings over the THX Cinema. Skin tones just look more accurate, really spot on to me. Truthfully I've never owned a display that I was happy with prior to having an ISF calibration performed. I'm sure one would provide that extra pop but to me, I'm in heaven watching this fantastic display. Everything to my eyes looks fantastic. Finally, a plasma that provides everything someone could want visually, no surprise one online review gave it a Reference Award not given since the KURO.
Really I'm shocked at how good the PQ looks, simply amazing. Finally had a chance to watch some blu-ray movies and couldn't believe the clarity of the blu ray movie called The Promise. I bumped up my blu ray's player sharpness to +1 after finding out someone else did this with their player connected to the VT60 display. With this, the movie was so sharp and clear it was like looking into a mirror. My wife and I kept remarking how good the PQ looked. Just drew you into the picture like no other display I've ever owned and I had a Pioneer Elite as one of my past displays. The +1 sharpness bump on my blu ray player didn't add any noise.
It seems some are going on and on about the brightness of the VT60 not being bright enough or not as bright as the VT50 or some other display. I guess a concern if in a bright room. If not which is my case, the VT60 is incredible, a truly reference picture without a doubt. The black level is inky black with great shadow detail. Also watched The Hobbit in blu ray with plenty of dark scenes that all looked amazing. Really one should try out the VT60 in their room to see if okay or not as far as brightness goes instead of listing brightness levels or who measure what and how.
