No that isn't out of the box, and I have not gone through anything major as far as calibration, although I want that "Get Grey" disc that I hear people here talk about.
But I had gotten Ratatouille on Blu Ray for like 10 bucks on ebay and had planned watching it to see some no holds barred, FULL HD animated Bluray! Before I watched it I was poking through the special features of the disc and found a little calibration utility similar to what THX offers on some of the star wars movies, So using it, I adjusted the Contrast, brightness, color and tint and thats all. (in movie mode btw).
but yeah I can take come action movie pictures for ya. maybe tonight or tomorrow night before i can. This TV is actually setup in my house, which i just bought a month ago. I am not moved in yet because I am doing some improvements first. SO the tv was merely setup as to test it to make sure there were no issues. Since then I ended up throwing a photon mattress on the floor and spending several night last week there to watch the TV!!! haha.. once I saw the PQ i couldnt stay away. (dont even have cable or internet yet
I will say that this TV is getting exchanged for the same model, but ONLY because of the Flimsy frame of my particular set. Having visited 2 best buys and a circuit city to compare the floor models of my set I came to find they had stiffer frames than mine, and think it was just due to manufacturing and ALSO shipping. Mine makes it very easy to slightly touch the top frame corners and make the picture sway, much more than what I found with ANY floor model of this OR the 650. and the mits and sony were MUCH more rigid. So I have realized its a samsung thing due to the manufacturing, design and slim depth feature. I can deal with that, but just want mine to be as rigid as the others I have seen.
as far as "soon to be dealt with" exchanging it is basically what I meant.
But I DO KNOW FOR A FACT, that it IS possible to ADJUST the TILT. At first I thought it was via the service menu, but thanks to Rahull from this forum, I found it was via the SERVICE MANUAL. You must adjust the Tilt from the inside of the set, very similar to adjusting a front projector on a screen.
From what I remember reading in the service manual, there are four screws that must be loosened, and utilizing a crosshatch pattern , you can adjust the position of the internal projector, then carefully tightening the screws again after the projector is aimed correctly.
With that in mind, I bet its even possible to Tighten other areas internally to prevent the screen sway/flimsy screen, but as new as mine is, I don't wanna start FIXING ANYTHING yet, but rather have BB deliver me a new one that I test in depth BEFORE they take the FIRST ONE away. if its rigid like the floor models I have seen and STILL has tilt issues, at least I myself, or a service tech can address the tilt issue. My only fear is voiding the warranty or getting dust on the lens, if I do it myself.
