I know a meter would help, but for someone who has a good eye for spotting problems I doubt it would help that much.There is not a lot of adjustments on this tv Sammy e450 and it looks good out of the box, except grayscale needed adjustment.The brightest brights were too blue in comparison too The darks that we're shaded with too much red on warm2
-Contrast if I go too high the small white patches get too bright.
-Brightness Some brighter screens washed out if it adjusted too bright. The result is black crush in dark screens(I know a most of it is source related).
-Tint middle setting works best. Maybe 1 click either way might help slightly
-Color you can't go high or flesh colors are too much
-Fleshtone control is basically no much help and all the other controlsl according too the pros degrade the picture.
-Gains and bias I can't get much better.( I've got lots of experience calibrating white balance).I know what to do here.it just takes a while to figure it out.
-Adc calibration might help but requires the taboo service mode
-gamma -1 better for bright screens and 0 for dark screens.I think 0 is better as-1 makes white patches too bright,and is too dark
Hdmi black level normal or low( I'm using normal) and cablebox Ycc or rgb are the only settings that a meter might help with in my opinion.And the differences I bet are very minor.
Basically I've got a pretty good tv- a bit dim ,has black crush( not the worst problem too have),some slight over bright whites but not bad and varying gammas which is abl non defeatable,bit of blur(mostly motion blur) that I can't do anything for.I think I'm at the point that any improvements I make will be very very small.
