Thanks for a great review of this TV which will hopefully fit my needs just fine. Took delivery of the TV yesterday however, hope to calibrate the picture today.

Can I ask why there are four options in each setting e.g. Backlight: 26 45 40 100?

Should I set to 26, 45, 40 or 100?

It depends on the circumstances, the night setting uses 26 because you're watching in a dark room and you don't want things to be too bright or it can be fatiguing for the eyes. The day setting uses 45 because in the day time there is a lot more ambient light in the room, so you need a brighter image. The game setting is 40 because people usually game with some ambient light in the room but if you usually game in the dark then 25-30 would be more appropriate. The HDR setting uses a setting of 100 for the backlight because you need that to get the full benefit of the peak highlights in HDR content.

I'm keen to know this too. And what about sharpness?


Novice Member
I don't understand these questions.
In the white balance section it states either 2bit or 10 bit settings (it's an option just above the RGB offset stuff)
And in picture mode it's as follows : Standard, Cinema, PC/Game, Dynamic, HDR (i don't currently have a HDR device so this is greyed out)

It isn't very obvious because my carefully set up table got crushed together when I posted it but if you look at the picture modes you'll see I list four – Cinema (Night Mode), Standard (Day Mode), PC/Game (Game Mode) and HDR (HDR Mode). There are four numbers or settings for each topic beneath that, each of which equates to the relevant Picture Mode. So for example the Brightness setting is 52 for Cinema, Standard and PC/Game and 46 for HDR.

There is a 2-point and a 10-point white balance control but I have only provided settings for the 2-point, where it says White Balance R-Offset etc.
