Nah, this set is easy to set up. Just put it into pure mode, then triangulate the inverse of the gamma values, tweak the DRE module, making sure that you're not clipping your whites, then go into the advanced settings and make sure that the color temperature is exactly 6500 degree Kelvin and that you don't have orbiter set to maximum throttle. Piece of cake!
Yes, this TV has a lot of options for you to tweak, but I'm sure that you can get a great picture with one of the picture setting presets and playing with the standard controls found on all TVs (Brightness, Contrast, Color, Hue, etc.)
