It was a tough choice between the Samsung f8500 and the Panasonic ZT. Saw them side-by-side and I preferred the punchier Samsung, but in the end, I went with the ZT because I am going to be watching it in a totally darkened environment.
I receive my display tomorrow.
So...here is the question I have for you guys...
I won't be getting it calibrated for a few months.
Out of the box I hear it's pretty damn good as far as settings are concerned. Recommendation is to put it in THX Movie Mode.
What other adjustments/settings should I immediately make to get the optimum picture?
I know you guys have been discussing this for pages on end, but hoping to get a capsulized summary.
Thanks for the help.
PS: Though I downloaded the break-in slides I am kind of up in the air as to whether I should really run them or not.
