Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Samsung PN51F5500 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: Without a CMS it was very difficult to get color any more accurate, but the two-point greyscale enabled a better white balance.
