Hi LisaM -
As you said - the "out of the box" settings on the picture are actually pretty good.
Here is the definitive resource (IMHO) for the Sony 900E which is very close to the Sony 900F, in terms of specs. It was developed and maintained by johnbrooke26 with many user settings and it's been a great resource for everyone. The spreadsheet link is as follows:
You can see my settings under "Ricoflashback" - a little farther to the right as you scroll across. I really find a lot of the settings to be very close whether it be Cinema Home, Cinema Pro or even Standard. Where there is some disagreement is on the motion settings. I have everything turned off. The Sony 900F handles motion differently than the Sony 900E. There is a long discussion about dropped frames and judder with the Sony 900E on the 900E thread.
Motion is handled differently with the 900F versus the 900E - X Motion Clarity. And, the 900F has the X1Extreme Processor versus the 900E X1.
Here is a great comparison between the Sony 900E and Sony 900F that is available from the Sony website: https://www.sony.com/electronics/tv/...s?view=compare
Lastly - outside of purists and calibrators who believe that the ONLY settings should be calibrated as they are "objective" as opposed to "subjective" - I believe that there are really no wrong settings unless you wildly jack up the color or other features. To me, it's what works for your eyes - how the picture looks to you.
Which reminds me of one comment a poster made about his grandparents settings that he thought were too saturated and not "accurate." He went in and changed all the picture settings and then told them that this is how the picture should look. They weren't happy campers after the changes.
Above all - enjoy! Once you dial in the settings you like - - you get to focus on content and all the great benefits of Sony's upscaling and pristine picture.
