Thank you for posting this! I've tried many different picture settings (including the CNET settings, Montecore's and several others from this forum and amazon.com, etc.) and I keep going back to the factory defaults! Occassionally, I will change the mode for sports (football, basketball, etc.), but I use "standard" 90% of the time and am very happy with it. I know that picture preferences are subjective, but I am glad to know I'm not missing something.
