though the disc is very very very thorough (and recommended), i am far from a videophile, so a lot of the settings i looked into but didn't really put much time on them.
funny thing is, the main settings are very similar to what has been discussed here earlier.
i originally had 'shaorons' settings in expert 1 and 'nseriessagas' in expert 2. i've had the tv for about a month and a half or so, so i'm not even sure i have enough hours into it that i should of used the disc/calibrated just yet. but i was curious about the disc and am not incredibly picky. i'm somewhat picky, but not incredibly.
i actually liked 'nseriessaga' settings at first. i also like medium tones as opposed to the warm ones. so colour wise i used his white balance and left the colour management system untouched as he did. to be honest...as long as the colour match looks fine to me, i am not really concerned about having the exact right (experts) colour scheme's so i didn't get too deep into the wow colouring section. i am more concerned about brightness, sharpness and contrast for shadows and stuff.
i was very aware of the issues that plasma's can have with the colour white. my set doesn't even get white enough to pass the wow disc contrast test. it still looks pretty white, but it doesn't matter what setting i change i cannot get it white enough for the testing it includes. it's pretty close i think, like when i go into some advanced settings the white brightness isn't that far off, but officially it could not get white enough for a couple of the test.
so after the long preamble, here's the settings i am using.
panel light 98
sharpness V 10
sharpness V 10
***the sharpness test on the disc is amazing. 10 seemed to be the exact number, no question. with anything else, or with 16:9 (overscan) on there was noticeable pixel blur.
dynamic contrast off
super resolution off
colour gamut standard
edge enhancer off
colour filter off
***there is a gamma test as well. i think the not true white's played tricks with this one as well. the disc said that 2.2 is a good number to leave it at, so that's what i did. i tried changing the gamut to wide and the gamma to the 3 different options in the actual test, but i honestly couldn't see much of a difference.
colour temp med
method 2 points
colour managament: untouched
noise reduction off
mpeg reduction off
black level low
that's about it!
any questions, feel free to ask.
