FWIW, buying a TV with the most controls for calibration won't necessarily result in the best color or best overall image quality. For example, you can make lots of adjustments on all of LG's TVs, but the color after calibration might still be worse than on other TVs with fewer controls. Katzmaier noted that in his review of the LG LM7600, saying that color appeared worse on that TV than on others (like the Panasonic ST50) that provide much less control over the image. LG's flagship plasma was given low marks for color accuracy in the 2012 HDTV Shootout. My own LG plasma has "inconsistent" red hue; it is green-ish at 100% saturation and blue-ish at 75%. The TV has a CMS, but it won't correct a problem like that -- all I can do is compromise, making the inaccuracy about even at both points. There are all kinds of similar problems that you may see while calibrating a TV, some of which may not even be measurable; the color may look better or worse to you than it actually measures. I'm not sure which Samsung TV you have, but I believe that Samsung's newest TVs (both plasma and LCD) have the reputation of being some of the most color accurate TVs available. The VT50 also has an excellent reputation for color accuracy, and it has more calibration controls than the cheaper Panasonic models.
