I’ve talked a lot here about accuracy: selecting an accurate picture mode and color temperature, finding the accurate brightness and contrast settings. That’s what reviewers are trained to do: evaluate the accuracy of a product. At the end of the day, though, it’s your TV. Whether you choose to adhere to the guidelines I’ve described here or not, my hope is that you walk away with a better understanding of what each picture adjustment will and won’t do. Armed with that knowledge, you can set up your new HDTV so that it looks good to your eyes and, if you want to take it even deeper, you can always call in the likes of a professional calibrator. The ISF trains them and recommends people in your area. They can take the above concepts even further, but since you have already read this far, you will be able to talk with your calibrator about what they are doing and why it makes your HDTV look so much better.
