As Dave Hancock points out each set varies somewhat and the settings that look best for a particular set may not be the best for someone else's A2000. Also as you point out individual preferences vary and perhaps different lighting conditions of the room may also come into play for ones preferences in settings.
I've been tweaking the custom settings here and there and still think Standard compares favorably to most of what I've come up with. "Vivid" is purely there for the "wow" factor, to attract attention at the stores, while "Standard," more than likely, is what Sony believes is the best balance of colors and prefs. I think they nailed it pretty well, at least for my environment and apparently for you as well now.
I agree that the Warm 2 setting in custom does produce a greensih and somewhat brownish tinge and softens the picture a bit too much, even though I prefer a softer picture than an ultra, unrealistic vivid one.
Also, in Standard, I deselected Sony's Advanced Iris default (Auto 2). I stay away from Auto 1 as well, because under these two Auto it seems the set can't make up it's mind whether if needs more or less lighting and the flickering (sometimes subtle, sometimes not) is very distracting. So what I do is go back and forth between medium and low, depending on the time of day and lighting in the house. At least it's constant and it eliminates the flickering. Seems to work well for me.
Do you add more read to your hue to lose some of the green? Mine (thus far) seems OK at zero. I'm still going to play around in custom to see if I can come up with my "perfect" picture.
I've read through this entire thread and I'm glad that you and your wife found a setting that is more to your liking, eliminating some of that green.
