    Hi everyone,

    I have just bought the LG 55SJ800V and not sure if its any good. My old LG 47LA790 has a great picture but this new on is supposed to be better but I find the dark areas too dark and bright areas too bright. I also find the the screen at times shows faint segments as I move the cursor from left to right. Does anyone own the LG 55SJ810V and have similar problems?

    Can anyone recommend the ideal settings?

    Is it better to have the back light low and the brightness and contrast high?

    Sometimes the picture is fantastic other times it's poor. I have a gold plated hdmi lead which should be good enough
    My settings are:
    Picture modeStandard
    Backlight40
    Contrast80
    Brightness 62
    Colour saturation55
    Colour temperature0
    Tint / Hue0
    Sharpness0

    Additional settings

    Energy Saving off
    Eye Comfort Mode off
    Dynamic Contrast off
    Dynamic Colour off
    Skin 0
    Sky 0
    Grass 0
    Colour Gamut wide
    Super Resolution off
    Gamma low
    Noise Reduction off
    MPEG NR off
    Black Level low
    Real Cinema on
    Motion Eyecare off
    LED Local Dimming low
    TruMotion clear

    Your brightness is effectively your black level, your contrast is your white level. Set these to avoid loss of detail in dark scenes and white clipping.

    Your Back Light is what governs how bright the screen gets.
