Here's the charts from my post-cal yesterday. I haven't dialed in the CMS yet, so I'm only including the grayscale. The variation at 10% is probably reading errors from my meter.

Here's the graphs I got with the Natural mode before calibrating. Color temperature is too blue at the 6500K setting, but the gamma is pretty good, and the dE of the grayscale isn't too far from 3.

If you don't have a meter attached to your computer, HCFR will use a simulated meter. It isn't actually reading anything, just showing you how the software works. Without an actual meter attached,...

If you are going to make adjustments without using a meter, I'd just download the AVSHD 709 disk and do the basic adjustments you don't need a meter to do, like Brightness, Contrast, and Sharpness,...

I adjusted my grayscale settings a bit tonight, and checked the 6500K reading when set to the default. I saw around 7000K or above as well before adjusting the 2 point settings.

I could exchange it at Best Buy, but if it's common enough that a replacement might also have it, I'll just keep this one. I want to zoom as little as possible, I don't like losing some of the image...
