The Government of Quebec is shutting down non-essential businesses till April 13. Therefore, our lab is temporarily closed and we can't test new products. In the meantime, we will continue to update articles from home.

LG LF5500 Calibration Settings

These are the configuration settings that we used in our review of the LG LF5500 LED TV. First, we set the picture mode to Expert1.

LG LF5500 Calibration Settings 1

We calibrate for a dark room, which is why our 'Backlight' setting is so low. If you have a few lights on, increase this value as much as you want (it doesn't affect the other elements of the picture quality).

For Blu-rays and gaming, turn off 'Noise Reduction'. You might need to change the 'Black Level' to something else, depending on your source's HDMI range.

Here are the rest of the settings. If you find the picture too yellow, change 'Color Temperature' to something colder.
