I usually go with backlight 0, contrast 33 to 85 depending on light in the room and content, usually leave gamma and black level alone unless contrast is 33 and the image's too light, then I'll back down both a touch.
As for color, I usually have that set to 60-75 depending on content, warm for movies, neutral for games, and live color on low.
For clarity, I have sharpness to 20, the others almost always on auto except for low on gradient.
Motion's standard for sports and true cinema for movies and most shows. Off for games.
I use cinema home for most stuff and game for games to reduce input lag.
Hope this helps!

The 65" VA I have now can be tough to watch from an angle. I pretty much have to be dead center or I'll see shifting in color, brightness, contrast, black levels, etc.
A 75" would be a massive TV and would make the angles very, very narrow. Perhaps they assume a 75" would be for lots off people around a large angle, making the superior viewing angles of an IPS the way to go.
I LOVE IPS, I really do. It's perfect for the iPhone, iPad, and Macbook Pro I have because I'm almost always looking @ an off angle, usually vertical. I don't care too much about deep blacks because I typicalaly only do a little hulu watching and d no serious gaming or movie watching.
That said, I would never, never want to plump my butt on the comfy chair and watch a movie or play a game that thinks grey is black. VA for movies unless you can OLED it up.
You might find some differing opinions here, so maybe try to find a magnolia best buy or high end store to demo in a dark room the differences. I have a blackout curtain, blinds, and annother curtain after that with only a bit of bias light behind the TV, so it's pretty dark. The blacks on this panel look fantastic. I'm certain I would be botyhered by the lighter IPS.
Also, here's a few fun pictures of my recent warranty...
They replaced a 55x810c with this 65x850e for an upgrade fee (I wasn't going to accept their offer to replace the 810 wwith an 800e which is only 60hz and an IPS). So they sent me tthis:
Lovely "new" box...yeah right...obvious, refurb is obvious:
Something seems off...
After much figthing with their warranty support, I got a new TV:
Sick, sick, sick blacklight!!!
