Samsung F6300 LED TV Professional Calibration
A television in the process of being calibrated before we begin our review.

M Series Calibration Notes: From Calibrated Picture Mode setting which we found the best out of the box picture mode setting. The M-Series Vizios such as the M601d do not have a CMS (color management system) or Gamma settings. They do contain a 2 point grayscale color temperature setting which we calibrated as follows:

Calibration Equipment: Sencore OTC1000 Meter, AV Foundry VideoForge Source, Direct Display Control
