It makes everything look exactly how I want it to. But if I can make it even better with the advanced setting calibration then I'm certainly not opposed to that. I hear that you can really mess your TV up fooling with the advanced settings if you don't know what you're doing..

 

The really advanced color/gamma settings are very, very difficult to do at home (color wheels and your eyes really aren't up to the task as opposed to handheld sensors that pros use).

Looking forward to playing the shit out of that game if Diablo 3 aka Video Game Crack ever releases its hold on me.  

 

The Uncharted games are beautiful and Uncharted 4 really took advantage of HDR.

Yeah I'll have to revisit Uncharted 4 now.

Also....I've never seen a TV with an adjustable BLACK LEVEL.

If it's on mine then I just haven't found it..

Black level is a fundamental adjustable setting on seemingly every modern television.  HOWEVER, for some televisions that isn't a convenient: "black level" label (though I think both my televisions do have it).  For some, it's buried in the hopelessly convoluted individual gamma/color table.  Obviously, you're going to want that set that all the way down unless there is a very good reason not to.

Despite not having that setting...the blacks on my TV have always impressed me. None of them have ever looked gray when they shouldn't. It's always inky and deep.

One movie and scene that showed me that it's blacks were great was in the original Halloween towards the end when Jamie Lee is leaning against a wall with a pitch dark doorway behind her. It was so deep that nothing of Myers' could be seen until his mask gradually lit up in the dark. Every time I watched that movie on VHS and DVD prior to that, the darkness was weak and you could make some of him out in the dark doorway before the mask gets brighter. That's the first time I'd ever seen correct video settings help to preserve directorial intent. I was thrilled to see that scene play out that way. It looked super cool..

You had me at "inky and deep."
