Also, got my 60" mounted and hooked up today. Was going to use the same settings I used on my M501d(Dr. Shakensteins), but found the color range numbers were completely different. I don't necessarily want to use Game mode, as I like the soap opera effect. So, does anyone have some calibrated 60" settings that got posted, that I missed? I prefer Calibrated Dark, and would go from there.
FYI, the screen on the M601d is matte-if anyone was wondering. I'm using it in the living room, with all the blinds opened, and got zero reflections that I noticed on the screen. Of course, when the set is off, it's still reflective. But, not like the M501d.....I could use that screen as a mirror while shaving. But with the M601d-ya might miss a few spots, or worse, cut yourself.
I've only played with the 60" for about 30 minutes-so nothing to report yet.I did have one strange "occurrence": On one HDMI, I have the Dish network, and am able to push the 3D button, and get four choices-to included "sensio"(the only one I use). But, I had my laptop hooked up with an identical HDMI cable to another input, switched to that, started a movie in Videolan(3D movie), I pushed the 3D button-and was only given 1 option-3D. And, because the movie was Side by Side, it didn't work. I'm hoping it was just something on the computer that I missed-because regardless of HDMI inputs, I should get the four choices when I push the 3D button.
Also, I pushed the "service check" option-just to see if I get a firmware update.
Will report back tomorrow to see what other 60" owners are using for settings, and to see if I can get my four selections back working, with the laptop connected.

I just tested my laptop again, on my M601d, and was able to push the 3D button on the remote, and scroll over to "sensio". 3D works flawlessly, and is amazing on this set too!!! I looked at it from off angle, and was still able to get decent 3D, but it's best if you keep your sitting position within about 30 degree's from center-everything in that arc was spectacular.
I also tested the YouTube App on this set, was able to log onto my YouTube account, and search 3D content. Found the Avatar clip, and it played flawlessly over the Wi-Fi.
So, I'm giving the M601d two thumbs up!!! All of the above was in the middle of the day, in the living room, with all shades open(very brightly lit)...and the blacks were pure, not washed out, and the colors popped, as did the 3D. At one angle, with the TV angled towards the couch, I could see the faint reflection of the sliding glass door, and outside into my yard. It was blurry, but visible. So, the screen is slightly reflective-if I need to rectify that problem, simply closing the blinds on the sliding door would have sufficed.
Also, my viewing distance is about 17 feet away from the set. I could have gone with a much larger set.....but, I'm very happy with the 60". For the price, you can't beat it with anything else out there. And, to go up to a 70" or 80", is such a steep jump in price, and weight, that I feel the 60" was a wise choice for my viewing distance and budget. I can always move the love seat, and sofa closer to the TV, if I need to be "immersed" in what I'm watching.
Now what I should have done, was buy the 60" for the bedroom too!!!! But, I'll stick with the M501d in there.
I see no banding, flash lighting, light bleed, or any other screen anomalies either in HD, or 3D. To me, this appears to be an S-IPS panel. Those are much more expensive, and higher quality than the older style TN panels. They also give you more colors, and about the same, or faster refresh rate.
Also, for sports-I watch NHRA drag racing. My settings are Game Mode, with the color calibrations listed on the previous page(s), with smooth motion set to Medium, Smart Dimming On. I prefer the soap opera effect. I noticed no motion blur, or stuttering watching the drag racing. Everything was just smooth, and sharp.
