On my lcd tv i wasnt a fan of pc mode, but i couldnt change the sharpness in pc mode on that one and the image was to blurry for my liking. with this one upping the sharpness to 100 fixes that and is alot cleaner. remember you need to have enhanced black levels on the 360, output RGB on the 360 and hdmi black level normal, that could be why it was to bright for you, if you had standard on the 360 and normal hdmi black level that would cause white clipping and the pic would look to bright and washed out. I wrote it in the other thread where you misunderstood what i said. its a important setting to get right or you will end up with either black crush or white clipping i guess its called. heres a little bit from a article from a review about pc mode:
We weren't expecting the PS51D550 to do wonderfully or woefully when it came to gaming, because most of Samsung's plasmas have managed respectable, but not leading amounts of responsiveness lately. The 51D550 exceeded our expectations with an exceptionally speedy 16ms, but we had to use the PC input label (accessed by pressing Source > HDMI1/DVI > Tools > Edit Name > PC) to achieve this speed. We're also not sure if it will enable with all sources, although it did with our Xbox 360 Elite feeding the panel. (This also results in full uncompressed colour being displayed in the 4:4:4 format, for those of you who are both hardcore gamers and hardcore videophiles). Remember that this trick only works on the HDMI1 input, so gamers should give their favourite system priority when connecting.
Without this trick, the Samsung PS51D550 still managed a respectable, but slightly game-altering 31ms of input lag.
