Hi all, just picked up a PN51F5500 on craigslist in excellent condition for $500! Bought it as an upgrade to my PN42C450 which I love, but so far I'm disappointed. I tried three different settings from this thread and two of them looked really off, one looked ok but not as nice as my C450. I only played with it for a short while last night and today I found "superleo's" settings which a lot of people seem to like, along with a few others after reading this entire thread. I'm exhausted! :-) I can't wait to try all of these when I'm back home on Monday.

Quick question, can someone explain what this Cinema Smooth and 24p setting is all about? It was greyed out when I tried to use it. My source is a Mac Mini running XBMC. Content is mostly blu-ray rips. Was also wondering what a typical professional calibration would run me? Anyone here in the NJ area?

Yardl3y,

I believe cinema smooth can only be turned on if you feed the tv 24p content (such as a blu-ray player set to output blu-rays at 24p)

After so many good reviews about plasma I bought this Samsung 51' F5500. I found it very uncomfortable to my eyes becouse of flicker of PDP (easily seen on static screen by eyes or on camera when in motion). Even watching it at low brightness, after short period I feel me eyes very tired, which lasted 24 hours. On another day after a few minutes I can feel the flicker of PDP, not even on my eyes but my face too (burning sensation). So both PDP and DPL technologies are not for everyone eyes ...

The F5500's price to quality ratio can't be beat by any set right now. My only qualm with this TV is that the glare is terrible during the day but in a dark room this TV's PQ is stunning. The depth and color accuracy is what I like most about this tv.


 


I have tried all the picture settings that I can find on the web including the ones from this forum but I decided to come up with something that is quite easy on the eyes (less eye fatigue). The red on this tv can be too saturated especially noticeable on a white person's face and there's a tad of blue tint noticeable on a dark person's face. I tried my best to eliminate/decrease those tints. I really like the colors to be be as good as like looking outside my window kind of picture. Easy on the eyes. 


 


My picture/calibration setting target: color accuracy, brightness (close to led/lcd brightness as possible), picture depth.


Try watching moving art movies: flowers,oceans,forests, on netflix with this picture settings.


 


For those looking for a picture setting that is very easy on the eyes you might want to give this a try. 


 


My picture settings:


 


Standard picture mode

cell light 18

contrast 90

brightness 44

sharpness 14

color 41

tint 47/53

dynamic contrast off

black tone off

flesh tone 0

color spacing auto

white balance:


R-offset 19


G-offset 23


B-offset 22


R-gain 19


G-gain 23


B-gain 22

gamma 0

motion off

color tone -standard

HDMI black - level normal


everything else off.


 


I use this picture settings on everything - movies, cable tv and ps4 games.


 


Enjoy folks, thank you.  

For the HDMI Black Level set at Normal instead of Low is that because you used RGB Full on the PS4 instead of RGB Limited or is that just how you wanted it? As far as I know when you set the Black Level to Normal it's because the source is outputting RGB Full? Just wanna clarify that in your setting cause if I set the TV to Normal and I don't have the source set to RGB Full it makes it look extremely washed out. Oh and do you also have the Black Optimizer set to Off or in Auto, Bright Room, Dark Room? Along with Digital Clean View and Noise Filter off? Thank you for any reply.

Can someone please check something for me? When you use the info button on the remote, does it bring up the TV's current resolution? I would swear that it used to bring that up.
