Guys (yes, I'm assuming we're all guys...
), read and re-read that comment from Jason. Everybody take a breath...
You can't worry TOO much about what is "perfect" and how much "better" you can get your PQ if you are happy with what you have. I mean, if you are enjoying your display, don't "over think" it, and talk yourself into being less-than-satisfied.
Here is my quick story:
- Got my 632 the night before Thanksgiving; watched all the football games the next day and was blown away by the PQ...uncalibrated.
- Next, I pulled some posted settings from this thread, and was further impressed and happy.
- Next, I ordered the WOW disc myself, did the Basic calibration, and was further impressed and happy.
- Next, I did the WOW Advanced calibration, and was further impressed and happy.
- Next, I picked up on Jason's feedback about 6500K/D65 as a baseline of accuracy (I was not aware of this...had no point of reference), and tried his Game settings to get there. This was very "different" to me (and my GF), and we didn't have the patience to stick with it and get used to it (so far), so I went back.
- Jason was then kind enough to post some tweaked settings based on my WOW calibration that improved things somewhat, in terms of accuracy (though not real close to 6500K/D65), and I am using them now.
I will continue to compare settings and PQ, between what I'm using now (see above) and the more "accurate" Game settings, and continue to (possibly) do some tweaking to one or both, but I don't want to "over think" it, as the PQ (to me and my now-fiance) is stunning. Broadcast HD cable and BR movies are incredible...simply incredible.
I cannot wait to watch NASCAR on this thing...the broadcast PQ on Fox is typically top-notch, and the colors of the cars, etc. make for fantastic large-screen HD viewing.
Moral of the story...be informed, play around with different settings to optimize and refine, but ENJOY!
