These are the calibration settings that were used to review the LG UH6100. These settings are best for watching movies. For playing video games, first change the input icon to 'Game Console' and 'Picture Mode' to 'Game' before copying the remainder of the settings below. This will provide the lowest input lag. For use as a PC monitor, change the input icon to 'PC' to enable chroma support for clear text.
To begin, select 'Expert (Dark Room)' for the 'Picture Mode'.
For our completely dark room, we set the backlight to 35. This can be adjusted to match your environment without affecting the colors. For bright rooms, increase the backlight to combat glare and reflections. We also adjusted the 'Contrast' to 100 as it provided us the closest gamma curve to our calibration goal. To remove over sharpening, we adjusted the 'H Sharpness'and the 'V Sharpness' to 0.
'Color' and 'Tint' were left at their default values.
We remove the image processing, to achieve the most true image. We also put the 'Color Gamut' to normal and put the 'Gamma' setting to 2.2 as it was the closest match to our calibration goal. If you find blacks are crushed, you can reduce the 'Gamma' to 1.9.
For the white balance, we use the 'Warm2' color temperature, as it is closest to our calibration goal of 6500K.
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.
