I don't care what anyone says, color temp set to LOW on a 5080HD makes whites appear off-white and everything overall is WAY too red, this might be fixed with service menu adjustments but not out of the box!

Some of these setting can be tweaked depending on personal preference.

I have played with the color temp settings too. Try using the low with the color setting at -18. This is what Im at right now. I used D-Nice reference settings which work real well.

The website is Plasma TV Buying Guide.com

They are a scammer website - they cut and paste information from other websites and try to pass themselves off as an information site, but most of their links lead to their own group of scammy online vendors that go by several different names.


There is a reason why their web address is blocked by AVS Forum . . . . .

Maybe your particular display has an issue with red push that isn't typical.

Not sure why I would go to their website when I can use D-NICE right here. On top of that they are dealers.

Exactly. Why would anyone ever want to listen to "dealers" for any advice...

Wow, -18, that is really low. Just goes to show how one persons' settings are not applicable to others.

It is commonly said to have a red push. Some are just more sensitive to it than others. Green push is much more acceptable to most. Low equates to a ~6K color temp.

Medium equates to ~7.5K, too blue.

So SM changes or calibration would take either and get them correct.

I must say that the whites are not quite white in low, but are in medium.

low does look a lot more acceptable @ ~-13 for me

I'm still tweaking my new Kuro 5080 but I definitely prefer the color temp on High. Low and even Mid make whites too yellow for me. This is the same as what I set my old Panny ED set at. When I was adjusting that I found I liked the blue end of color temp setting much better than "Normal" and whatever the other setting was called.

Some of this could be related to age and eyes. My doctor told me I have incipient cataracts (gee isn't getting older great) which tend to make things appear yellower.

The 5080 defaults the SM to MID on the temp. Once the set is ISF'ed calibrated MID is the only accurate temp setting to use.

Those numbers I gave you didn't work?

I just tried that, but that is too weak in color saturation. Greyed too much - imo.
