Im fairly close to 6500K I think.anything to brighten things up and add more color helps on this tv.A bunch of fiddling between (mostly flesh control, color control) and white balance ..
.looks a bit cartoon like with high color saturation in the colors and fleshtones but its good and Colorfull.
.I think this sammy NOW looks a bit like a budget Panasonic plasma I saw ,which I thought had better color when viewed side by side with This tv in store.
So you used (your memory of) an uncalibrated, highly inaccurate TV as your "reference" and tried to make your TV look like that inaccurate reference, rather than trying to determine the settings that make your TV as accurate as possible.
Hmmmm... and you posted that in a Display Calibration thread?
Do you realize that the entire purpose of Display Calibration is to make the TV as accurate as possible, not to make it look like uncalibrated TVs in a video wall under fluorescent lighting (which changes the appearance of the TVs all by itself)? I guess I don't understand how the post is related to Display Calibration.
"Pop out" has nothing to do with Display Calibration... seriously. It takes someone with a meter and calibration software to determine if the video display is accurate or not. And 6500K is a poor determiner of display accuracy since you can add or subtract large amounts of green and the color temperature will not change very much. There is likely a thread on AVS for owners of the TV series you own and often 1 or more people in the owner's thread will have a meter and software and will post settings for those models that produce relatively accurate images (not calibrated, because each TV has to be calibrated individually). Any guess-work you do "by eye" is likely to be highly flawed because the human vision system is VERY easy to fool and what you think you are seeing can be very different from what you actually see... just look for optical illusions online. Many of them involve color.
