this is my first flat panel ever. i am on of these that when comparing the displays in the store, loved the LCD image and thought plasmas looked too dim, especially pioneers. but reading everything, i know these displays are the best.
like others have posted, it does take some getting used to. d65 from ikeb in performance, which i use for normal tv which is during the day seems perfect. at nights, if i am watching movies with very little light, d65 from dnice took 2 days to get used to. i was watching beijing opening ceremony in hd with little light. i was playing back and forth with d65pure and d75sport. even my wife who thinks the images are too dim said ouch with i went to d75sport.
i still play between d65pure and d65performance with movies to compare. they can both look good, but i usually fall back to d65pure. d65performance settings by ikeb are a great alternative to those that want a little more pop or have a little more light.
main thing to remember. these are all great base settings to start with, especially for people like me that are new to being given this many options and learning what images should look like. by all means, tweak these furthar and find something you like if the base settings dont do it for you.
