Got to disagree with you there, Cool color temperature looks horrible. On my 60F5300, the correct brightness setting with 95 contrast and -1 gamma is 48 for 23hz with Cinema Smooth on, and 50 for...

I was under the impression that both Panasonic and Samsung started bonding the plasma panel with the outer sheet of glass several years ago on all models. My 60F5300 has no air gap and no double...

Those settings are really low. If you like a dim picture at night I would suggest setting contrast at 95 and using cell light to adjust to taste. Even cell light at 3-4 and contrast at 95 will look...

Great, but F8500 is out of the OPs budget, and he's unlikely to find an open box ST60 anywhere.

Did you measure black levels with CS on/off? Subjectively, to my eyes, black levels look slightly higher with CS on, and could explain why I am seeing the black adjustment in fade to black at credits...

MLL isn't measured with the lights on, and H5000 doesn't have a filter, so of course the blacks are going to look better on the F8500 in a store setting.

If you watch mostly at night or have...

Lowering gamma just seems to kill shadow detail rather than adjust peak white output. With gamma at -3 and contrast at 95 whites were still too bright for my eyes.

I went back and looked at the AVS calibration disk, and indeed haloing does go away at 12. I'm still of the opinion that putting sharpness at 0 looks really blurry. If the goal of the sharpness...

I'm not sure that is the case anymore for the 2014 F5300 models. There were two measurements in the F5300 thread here from a couple of days ago where their F5300 measured .0019fL. The H5000 measured...

MSI Afterburner, but you could also use the AMD CCC, it does the same thing. I use Afterburner so I can set a fan curve profile.
