    It has been a while since I have had a Samsung but they do have that option. It is the "Apply Picture Mode" option. So you agree it should be an option but you find it "ridiculous"? I don't follow. It is a very valuable option for some that have varying sources that output images differently so you can dial them all in. IMO if you are running your TV stock out of the box with only minor tweaks, you are losing a lot of its potential.

    Might well be losing some potential, but I'm happy with my sets and the PQ they display. About the "ridiculous" thing: I do think it should be an option, not the default. To not have it as an option is what I meant by ridiculous. I don't use it, how could I have any other opinion?

    I just checked my 8000, it does have that Apply Picture Mode. Well, you're right and now I know what that's for. Still don't see any point in using it, I really don't see any problems with any inputs, but I'll keep an open mind. Thanx.
