I spent a little time with my 64" F8500 using HCFR and my iD3. I used MadTPG with 12% windows and 20% gamma light APL. I worked nearly exclusively on gamma and white balance. I was getting around 200cd/m^2 (58fL) on the 100% white window pattern with cell light at 20 and the contrast at 95 (movie mode).

I did take a quick CIE chart measurement. The only thing I changed was the color setting up a few clicks.

I will post my settings after I do a little more tweaking on the gamma and greyscale and use the CMS to dial in the primaries.

it's like trying to go for a new 'high score', just too addictive!

but I've settled in with these settings for now. and the stuff I've watched off the kuro demo disc looks incredible

my results:

on a side note, not sure if anybody else has experienced this, but I almost lost my mind when I made a tiny 'tweak' of 1 value to the GREEN at 80% and suddenly ended up with a graph that looked like this:

fortunately, before I panicked too much, I decided to turn the tv off and on again(I knew there's no way my setting could have done this), and that seemed to fix the issue. no idea what it was about, the tv just stopped working properly and needed to be restarted for some reason
Did you noticed the difference between the blacks that where in the earlier reviews and the ones you got?

For full black screen it was 0.007 cd/m2 you got 0.01 cd/me
For ansi it was average 0.014, you got 0.023 cd/m2.

I wonder why this happened, i calibrated my set some weeks ago and i noticed that also, i got the same results in the full black screen, didnt mesure the ansi though.

Very good calibration results by the way, i couldn't get a flat 2.4 gamma.
