Samsung LN32C350 Calibration and Testing

  Overview Review Specifications Calibration  


Calibration: Calibration through the menu was easy and the C350 did a nice job calibrating to near D6500K. There are advanced white balance controls included on this TV which is unusual for this price point. There are also many more advanced settings than I would have thought such as Black Tone, Dynamic Contrast, a Gamma setting, and a nifty Flesh Tone setting that will take the onscreen flesh tones from a yellowish to a pinkish appearance at your whim without changing the overall color appearance of the picture much.

Picture settings as calibrated from the Custom Setting:

Backlight: 8 Black Tone: Dark
Contrast: 92 Dynamic Contrast: Low
Brightness: 46 Gamma: +1
Sharpness: 10 Color Space: Native
Color: 53 White Balance:

Tint: Unchanged Flesh Tone: +1
    Edge Enhancement: Off

HQV Video Board Processing Tests

The inbuilt processor in the LN32C350 does a very good job for this price range of TV. Samsung did not skimp on the internal chip sets.
