Calibration report using these settings:

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the TK in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes:
The 10 pt scale is wildly unpredictable: small changes at one interval can affect the whole scale and as a result we chose to disable it.

We also saw black level differences between the E8000 and E6500--which are essentially the same TV and the higher gamma setting on this TV could have something to do with that.
