Well I did, but have since changed back. Using the WOW disc it showed a higher contrast by about 8 notches as well as brightness by four notches. CNET settings are for a dark room, I was in a dim lighted room. Color was just 1 notch higher and Hue 1 notch to red.
It was an excellent picture, but I made the second expert setting (mine is actually day and night settings) with the original CNET settings and like it even better. It's not a big change of course but just enough that faces look even more natural. Many are going to think the picture is too dark, but I found after awhile it's not for me. It's not going to make any real difference overall to the quality of the picture if someone pushes up the brightness from 50 to 52 if they want. 54 does make faces just a little lighter then I like, but that's being very picky.
TV shows and movies from Satellite, as well as from Blu-Ray of course are stunning on this TV, and that includes near blu-ray quality pictures with VUDU with those settings. If you are in a particularly bright room I can see making the picture a little brighter like the WOW disc shows.
