I watched my new Daredevil DVD last night and I was amazed at the quality of this DVD. Even the dark scenes were very clear, and the skin tones look realistic.
I now believe that the Samsung DLP is a very accurate TV, if you feed it bad media, then it will show bad picture quality (banding, clay faces, etc.) but if you feed it great media, then GREAT picture quality.
Most CRT TVs, especially SDTV sets seem to hide these flaws.
I set my set to Cool 2. Initially, when I played around with the settings I said "Yuck" to the Cool 1 and 2 settings. But after seeing a post of an ISF calibrationist recommending Cool 2, I tried it. Set it to Cool 2, and then use AVIA or Video Essentials to adjust the other settings like Contrast, Brightness, Color, Tint, etc. DNIe off, DNR off. Leave it at Cool 2 for a few days and see how you'll like it then.
