Samsung ES6100 Expert Picture Settings Calibrations

by Robert Wiley, Senior Editor

A television in the process of being calibrated before we begin our review.

ES6100 Calibration Notes: The ES6100 has great calibration D6500K through the 10 point white balance. There is a complete well-designed CMS (color management system) including luminance for each color. The calibration menu system is user-friendly for these adjustments. For a more natural looking picture in mid to darker light rooms in the ES6100 series without a lot of side effects try following the below settings, which may look dim and subdued compared to the preset standard standard settings. However, our settings do not not remove the natural background blur of the images. Unless there is a lot of window light coming into the room these settings should work well. If that is the case try turning up the backlight and if that still is not bright enough then go to the Standard setting. You would only need these options.
