@xXGhostXx try the settings that I posted on this thread. I use it for gaming, cable tv, netflix and blue ray. It is an all in one calibration setting. My main objective for the setting are: pq that is as natural as possible and brightness level that is close to led (for gaming and shadow detail)

Thank you very much, I will try them out.

Does anyone else who has the PN51F5500 speakers vibrate when on Trusurround Sound (Movie) Mode? Mine does it at volume level 20 or above. I can put it on the Standard sound mode and no vibration unless volume is up in the 70's but I wanted to get the Surround sound built in movie mode the set comes with. I have it on the stand and enabled the stand mode under sound settings? I know internal speakers are not the greatest and I am still on the hunt for a good sound bar but my other Samsung 46" Led does not do this whatsoever on any mode or volume level. I called Samsung and they told me I had the stand installed wrong? Lol so I was like ok let me redo the installation of the stand (pain in the a.. that was) so I did with the same result. So wondering if anyone else is getting vibration/rattling from their speakers?

I have a couple of quick questions for folks who have this set, or who have been following it more closely:

- One of the big knocks against this set in the cnet review was bright room performance. I've also read that it may be only the 60" (pentile) that's unbearable in bright rooms. Is that the case, and would the 51" perform acceptably in a moderately-bright room? I re-read the review at cnet, and the 51" is what they tested. Bummer.

- How favorably would a newer, lower-range set like this compare to top-range sets from previous years? I've got a Samsung PN50B860 (2009?) right now, and in general, I really like it. It's exhibiting some pretty serious PWM noise on startup that fades as it "warms up" though. The cnet review didn't knock it for bright room performance, but I'm wondering if that was not an issue worth bringing up as all sets from that year had the same issue.

Screen Fit position reseting itself

Hello,

Just bought a new PN60F5500 and quite please with it except for under/overscan.

When I use Screen Fit (no overscan) an watch STB, I have a green line on the left and top of the screen. If I move screen position 1 pixel left and top, line disappear. Unfortunately this setting seems to revert to default as soon as I change input or close TV.

I don't want to use 16:9 mode because of the overscan when playing games (about 1/2 inch is lost on all four sides).

Is there any known way to make the screen position permanent?

Thanks

I'm going to get this set this weekend.

I'm moving away from a rash decision I made to buy a Samsung H5500 LED TV which sucks for fast motion sports.

Do I need to do anything to break it in or can I use the settings posted by superleo immediately?

My suggestion is to lower the light cell from 20 and lower the contrast around 90 for 100 hours. The closest setting to 65K would be Warm 2 and Movie mode.

Once you give the panel some time to settle then adjust to your liking.

Ok thank you!

And the settings from the thread you started, those will be good on the 51" as well, right?
