Hey Guys, new Vt50 owner here, replaced an hx950. I posted in the settings thread a few days ago, but there was no response. Are there any good neutral settings floating around? All I see is Warm 2, which I think, makes whites look a little too yellow. I know every set is different, but if I can get a good base going, I can finish off calibrating on my own.
Also, I noticed a noticeably loud buzz/hum when running the break in slides, only on the white slide. Is that normal? I hear nothing during regular viewing.
Welcome to the VT club. The Sony 950 is a great tv too, and that's what I had my choices narrowed down to, but for the price and superb picture I went with the VT50. If the Sony were the same price I may have went with that, but I've been reading the forum over there and with the motion blur, pixels, haloing etc... It made me a little nervous. Anyway my vt50 picture is perfect, no dead pixels, superb blacks, and looks great during video games and while watching football. The only thing I'm undecided on is a have a buzzing noise. I can hear from the couch (about 13 ft away if the volume is off) I will update on this. Just something to check. Anyway as far as settings go obviously none may work for you while another may look great. Based on everyone here I would try wmwilkers day settings to start. You can tweak his to your liking since you might like warm 1 rather than 2. Also right out of the box CNET settings and Mascior's day settings looked good. Perhaps even grab the Disney WOW disc and do some tweaks yourself. Let us know how you like your vt50. I'm especially interested as I almost considered the Sony
