My plan:

Your eyes and view is different from everyone else, so play with the settings until it looks good to you.

Yeah man! I tried one of these things once and ended up with a horrible picture, I can only advice people to, well... follow your advice.

If you would like to follow the steps to calibrate your HDTV its alright. Yet, if you don't like it simply restore settings to defaults.

Exactly, there are general guidelines to follow but in the end, you need to calibrate it so you feel comfortable watching it..

Sick of mucking around a million TV forums reading a billion experts of their settings. All I've wanted for ages is a simple little guide just like this that I can use in 5 minutes. Sweet.

For any people that havent calibrated their HDTV's it does make a dramatic difference so give it a try its amazing how much better picture you get then using the default settings.

The best thing to do is if you have a PS3 is to get the DVE Blu-ray disc and use that to calibrate. 360 owners can also either get the HD-DVD or DVD version. I've used it with my Samsung 52A650 and have good results. It's great because there are lots of different test patterns to use, test videos, and a color filter.

Good post dude, i was about to post about using a program like digital video essentials. These discs don't cost much and will allow you to do a very good calibration. As many other people have said, the pq of a calibrated tv is night and day when compared to a tv that hasn't been calibrated.
