Check out rtings.com and get the color calibration from them. HDR looks amazing
just got an M50-E1. Calibrated settings look terrible. Dull, washed out. contrast and color range especially on hdr/dolby vision conent look very dull. I wonder if its even displaying the correct dynamic ranges on hdr content.
Standard display setting on he other hand look amazing. Things look shiny and sharp, motion is better, and HDR and dolby vision streams look breathtakin on netflix and amazon, with much more dynamic contrast and colors.
I think vizio just copied the rtings.com color tuning and it doesn't look so good on my tv with calibrated settings lol. Sometimes i will use calibrated dark with the color punched up to low 60s and backlight raised depending on my light conditions, and brightness at 49. but only for non hdr content that i feel is too bright or over saturated in standard mode. for example breaking bad. Calibrated Dark looks a slightly better then calibrated imo, but its not saying much. I have friends come over my house and think i got robbed on the tv when I have calibrated setting on. But standard has great contrast, sharpness and motion handling.
I really think something is broken with the calibrated settings on my unit.
Most dissappointing thing about this vizio for me personally, compared to other hdr tvs i tried LG samsung, is the motion handling. Everytime a scene pans i think I go crosseyed. verry jittery. i wonder if its because i got the 50 inch and not the 55. didn't realize it was onl a 60hz panel not a 120 as advertized. And Clear action does nothing but make the picture darker.
Overall not anything worth returning for the price. The blacks and uniformity on this tv are very good so is the local dimming. Just wish it was color calibrated better and had better motion handling. But for the avg person in dark room standard setting will be mind blowing.
I still prefer my LG's for bright rooms and wide angle viewing and motion handling. But the vizio displays HDR content (standard or vivid display settings) way more dynamic and uniformed.
