I also purchased the 60" from sams as an upgrade from a 42" vl vizio about 5 yrs old. I was hoping for better picture considering I loved that vizio and it was a budget model. I was really impressed with the black levels buti feel the picture is really soft, and uneven. The picture can range from amazing to terrible. I tried some of the calibration settings from some of the posts I've seen but I find myself re tweaking all the time. I used the hd basics disk on my other tv's and loved the results. Not on this TV. The blacks and who's get clipped and the sharpness control doesn't seem to enhance edge detail at all. As a result I bought the Samsung un65h6203 for the same price and I love .
