Well. Since I don't see anyone posting their calibrated specs here, I guess I'll start this off.
Calibrated using the WOW disc in a perfectly dark room with no artificial lighting. I've only done this on 2 modes that I'm interested in at the moment. And those are the Game and the Expert 1 settings using the PS3 as the Blu-ray player.
Game: Expert 1 setting:
Backlight 30 60 70
Contrast 93 93 94
Brightness 57 58 55
Sharpness 55 55 55
Color 51 52 52
Tint R2 0 0
Gamma Med Med Med
Black Level Low Low Low
Everything else is off for all mode. Warm for Expert 1
I have to say that I was very disappointed with the video quality in Game mode after calibrating with the WOW disc. Colors were muted, the image seems a bit washout, and the over-all picture was just dark. Doubling the backlight did not help at all.
With the Expert 1 setting, I re-calibrated using the WoW disc after going through all and choosing my preferences for all the questions, going with the middle options within the TV's calibration settings. On Warm, the image and color seem a bit better, but the picture is still muted with not enough range or depth in color and is still a bit washout as if there was a lack of contrast.
The saving grace in all of this, surprisingly, was the Intelligent mode. The color was brilliant and spot on to my eyes, if I was being honest. The sky is a perfect blue sky with the right white clouds. Very authentic to my eyes. The contrast/black level was just perfect. The picture started to dim at first in this mode until I went into the Energy Saving option (Auto by default), and set the minimum illumination to its maximum setting of 50. I admit that there were some distortion of edges since the option to change the sharpness was greyed out, other than that I couldn't have been happier with the over-all quality of the Black Ops 2 Nuketown's authenticity of colors.
I wanted to play games in the Game mode settings to prevent any input lag, but I just couldn't get the colors right no matter what I attempted to do. And worrying about the same input lag issues, I turned off all the digital enhancements within the Intelligent mode options. Still testing Black Ops 2 out on the Intelligent mode for input lag, and I'll report back if there are any. I would love to see more people here sharing their specs if they are happy with their calibrations. I will calibrate the TV's Cinema mode tonight using the WoW disc, but in general I don't like watching movies in the Cinema mode for it's too dark of a picture, and this TV was purchased mainly for watching 3D movies, which are darker as they are to begin with. Cheers!
