Panasonic TC-50LE64 calibrations?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
New to AVS forum and I recently purchased the Panasonic TC-50LE64 from costco. I was wondering if any one had calibrations they can post or could direct me to a place to find some.

Thank you in advance

Should probably look for a thread specific to your model in the lcd or plasma sub-forums, in your case lcd.

I searched the forums and did not find a thread.. I'm not finding any calibration information on google either. I'm feeling like maybe getting the Samsung UN50F6350AF Costco offered would have been better for getting a good calibration.. Hope i'm wrong

If you really want "a good calibration"...how about getting a calibrator to adjust your display?
Copying someone else's number is far from "a good calibration"

Just my $.02

As Michael from tlvexp.ca showed in a test, in most cases copying setting will actually "de-calibrate" the tv, meaning it makes it less calibrated instead of calibrated. It makes the picture worse 9 times out of 10

To clarify, components that consumer tv are made of have a tolerance of about 10%. They are stable in what they do, but the difference between two identical components might be 10%. If you realise how many components there are in a single tv, you also realise that each tv needs to be calibrated individually.

So using someone else's as a baseline and adjusting from there is not recommended?

Every set is different. Add your viewing environment to it and some else's settings may not work for you.

Most displays come from the factory already with a so-called "baseline." It's a preset picture mode called "Cinema," "Movie," or an equivalent. Using someone else's numbers is just a roll of the dice and may actually end up with certain image characteristics worse than the factory preset on your sample of TV. You have been influenced by a persistent, widespread myth in the home theater community, and these types of forums, that appeals to the low energy, impatient, misinformed, wishful, naive, and confused video consumer. Here are some more links that explain why copying others' work is not reliable:
