These are the calibration settings that were used to review the LG LH5750. These settings are great for every use, from movie watching to gaming. The input lag stays the same across all inputs and picture modes.
Start off by selecting 'Expert (Dark Room)' as the 'Picture Mode Settings'. These settings will be great for watching movies, TV shows and sports.
We adjusted the 'Backlight' to match our room environment , you can increase the 'Backlight' as much as you would like to match your room, it will not effect the colors. We also adjusted the 'Contrast' to 80, you can increase this if you would like to have a brighter image without the picture quality being affected at all. We also adjusted the 'H Sharpness' as well as the 'V Sharpness' to 0 so there wouldn't be any over-sharpening.
We left 'Color' and 'Tint' to their default values as it didn't benefit the results.
We turned all the processing settings off. We also put the 'Color Gamut' to normal and put the 'Gamma' setting to 1.9 as it seemed to benefit our calibration, and it helped avoid crushing the blacks.
In the 'White Balance' settings we put the 'Color Temperature' to warm.
The following are the results of the white balance and colorspace calibration on our unit. You can try copying our values for these, but we don't recommend them as they vary per individual unit, so they might not be good, even for the same model and same size as the TV we reviewed. If you want to try them you will need to enter all values shown, as all of them are active at the same time. If you end up with worse picture quality, simply reset them to the default values.
