Usually no more than 10, though my (current) TV room's window is not
opposite the TV which, in my experience, makes a huge difference in how high you need to set the backlight.
In the final resting spot for my TV -- in a room where the TV will
be directly opposite the window -- I will likely have to set it higher.
I tend to find ambient lighting (lamps, etc) not to be an issue with KS, but sunlight is hard for any TV...

I've been satisfied with (Luminoodle Bias Lighting for HDTV
) which is long enough to make an inverted U -- up from the left side of the TV (where the onboard USB port is), across the top, and back down the right side -- on my 65" KS800D from Costco.

Before I added the bias lighting mentioned above, I regularly watched in the dark, using the all the rtings.com settings as well, with a backlight of 2 and never felt like that setting was too dark. I sit about 8 feet away from the set currently. With bias lighting, I set backlight to 6 under the same conditions.
