Samsung F8000 Calibration and Picture Settings

1080p 3D HDTV with Smart Hub LED TV

by , Senior Editor

F8000 Calibration Notes: Calibration was very accurate on the F8000. Right out of the box, the TV is set close to D6500K. We found that we liked using the Smart LED (micro dimming) setting so keep that in mind in your adjustments. Also, as noted in the full review, you will want to change the AutoMotion Plus feature depending on the programming you are watching. With most programming you will want to turn it off or at least the De-judder portion. With 3D and Gaming you will benefit from leaving it on. The Color Space needs no adjustments for a good calibration.
