Samsung PN51E8000 3D Smart Plasma HDTV Review$2,199.00
We found that calibrating the E8000 prior to testing--to maximize its black/white contrast and color spectrum integrity--was very easy. Calibrating within Movie Mode, the only change we made was to turn Sharpness down, from 20 to 0. Everything else about it lent great color detail along the whole spectrum, right out of the box. Turning Sharpness down reduces the overly aggressive contrast 'haloing' around areas of high contrast. This looks good from a distance--say, in a retail store--but for personal, home viewing, extra Sharpness is simply unnecessary.
All of our calibration is done in conjunction with the DisplayMate software.
The E8000 has 4 video modes: Dynamic, Standard, Relax, and Movie.
