The VT or GT series is more better suited.
I wouldnt waste your money on it.. It is going to cost you 250-300.00.
I found some good settings i am content with , slightly off Dnice settings... with better black levels and contrast. I did not care for his settings due to no blacks low contrast and skin tones made peopole look like zombies even though it was probably accurate to some point.. anyway I bought a diseney Wow calibration disc.. I returned the disc after 2 days since the calibration was no help really coming from Dnice settings since the brightness and contrast levels were already there.. The only thing that helped was wearing the glasses to determine the tint levels and adjusting from there. The Tint levels were off on Dnice settings after 100 hour breakin and calibration. Bringing the AGC+2 helped to obtain the 33 brightness with great blacks and bringing it to -8 tint made all my tint colors even on the calibration disc.. Now you might want to consider just buying a calibration disc from amazon. Wow is the best out there. i just returned it because in 6-7 months i will be getting the VT50 and using my eye1 to calibrate with spectracal for now on.. That is the only way to go.. I have a NEC 2690 computer monitor that i use to calibrate with my eye1 through spectraview software ., Its so easy and quick with great results. It adjusts all the internal hardware settings within the monitor without using windows software or just using software to adjust colors. This I am sure this is what the spectracal software will do for me with the VT50 by adjusting internal hardware settings to calibrate through the software. You can buy a eye1 and calibrate your computer monitor but most monitors will only let you adjust through software to get your calibrated results.. My computer monitor is a rare exception since NEC only offered this but was a high price.
I ended up using everything what Dnice used but this
same dnice settings on pro settings except
mid panel brightness
btw if you have anything smaller then a 60" ST then you might get slightly higher black levels since its been said on here many times the panels larger then 55" put out a better black
btw can anyone tell me if ARC can output 5.1 sound? I am a newbie at this function and want to get 5.1 on viera applications i.e. netflix
