Contrast, Brightness, H/V Sharpness, Color, Tint
Dynamic Contrast, Noise Reduction, Gamma, Black Level, Film Mode, Color Gamut, Edge Enhancer
I have written a post a couple of weeks ago (maybe on this thread) about suggested settings (Cinema mode, and so on). Have a look to my profile, then to my posts.
For more in-depht, you should learn how to properly calibrate the display. There is a section also on this big forum about display calibration, as well as on many others. Plus there are some guides on the Web; here is one of the best I have found out for starting:http://www.displaycalibrationonline....ices_guide.asp
Black Level option is regarding the RGB range of the HDMI inputs (at least). "High" is 0-255, mostly used with PC connection, and sometimes with the PS3. The source (pc or consolle) must be set to match the same RGB level of the HDMI input of the TV. "Low" is 16-235", mostly used with DVD and BD players.
Gamma should be set to 2.2 (more infos on the PDF manual of your TV)
Color Gamut should be set to "Standard" or "Normal". Not to "Wide".
Dynamic Contrast should be set to OFF for a better global picture quality.
Noise Reduction is a filter, usually should be set to OFF if the source is good.
More explanations are on the PDF user manual, but read also the 2 guides I gave you the links
