Well, had one of my co-worker's friend "calibrate" the tv, he did it with this $500 disk he has and his computer, boy did it look like some one put sunglasses on the entire screen, its umm.....LIFELESS! God awful screen, everything looks dull, so after he left I did a factory reset and went back to some what normal screen.
Honestly, I really don't think doing the whole black and white thing for a week is worth it, I understand what you are saying and don't take this the wrong way coz i do appreciate all the guidance and help, but the truth is, I have started to feel that I am trying too hard to "like" the tv, than just to buy it and be excited that I have a kick ass tv.
For example, some people will go buy a hyundai genesis and think it is the best car ever, or some people will run after the mercedes, even some after the ford fusion which is rated #1 car of 2011, to me all of the above are **** cars(sorry if any one owns them, not trying to offend anyone), point is from an expert mechanic's point of view, probably they will say toyota or honda are the best, magazines will rate the above, but again for some one like me nothing is more fun and awesome than my G37 coupe. Again, personal preference is worth spending money on, I want to be happy and excited about this tv, not run around calibrating it and "waiting" to like it, i hope i made sense.
Ok so after having the tv for 3 days now, this is where I stand-
Cable tv- Good quality, although there is color fluctuation
Gaming- Terrible, all maps look yellowish in mw3, bright gets suddenly brighter and then too dark, no lag though(game mode on)
Movies- Looks theater like,but enhanced to a point that in Dark knight I could not see any details on batmans suit
Final thought- I will be going back to un65d8000, you can tone it to a plasma level(I had) but you cannot make a plasma as bright as a LED set. I miss the fine details and mostly the ability to enjoy my gaming, which now feels like crap and I am not sure when it will be bright or too dark, for example, going from a dark to bright room, my eyes hurt and need time to adjust. With the plasma I had to wait for tv to break-in to have no motion lag while gaming, with my LED it was good to go right out of the box.
SO, people who like bright popping screen where they wanna see true clarity and also like to game more than anything, LED will be the best choice, as usual your personal preference rules over everything else.
In a nutshell, I will conclude the thread I started myself with this thought......
In the battle of the kings of tv, including the XBR929 and Elite, which I spent time looking at.....in my book, the clear winner is UN65D8000!!!
