Could you share your settings with me, maybe I can adjust them at the store and see how it looks.
Unfortunately, home setting will be useless in the store. The picture will look too dark. If you are testing brightness in the store, the only thing you can do is set it to Dyanamic mode and hit reset (just in case someone has been messing around with it). This will give you the brightest picture I believe you can get. Cell light, contrast, etc will be maxed. This is basically "torch mode".
Keep in this is FAR brighter than you will probably need in your home.
Now if you have alot of ambient light in your room, I will say that the c550 anti-glare is OK, not great. But it's not an issue in my environment.
