Samsung LE40N87BDX calibration

Hi all :)
apologies in advance if I have posted this is the wrong section! I was just wondering if anyone knows of any correctly calibrated 6500k settings or just any better settings than the out of the box ones for the samsung LE40N87BDX?

I have seen quite a few threads and settings for the samsung LE40M87BD and I understand the contrast ratio is 15,000 to 1 on that set and 10,000 to 1 on mine. Will this have any impact on settings if I try to duplicate the M87 setiings to the N87?

Any help, settings or experiences from anyone would be extremely appreciated. Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Basics to get better picture are to disable all processing.

Set to movie, disable dynamic contrast, black adjust, power saving, DNI-E, DNR, EE, Movie Plus. Then pop in calibration disc. Reduce sharpness way down, I found 0 to be best from 1080p DVD player, 20-30 for freeview TV.

Here Here! Took me an age to get my M87 picture to a level I was comfortable with. As Badbob said turn off all of the so called 'enhancements' and look up the M87, thread plenty of settings listed on there...
