Did I get your attention with that title? I promise, it’s not hyperbole. One very simple change in the setup menu will improve your TV’s image quality. We’ve said it many times before, but we’re saying it again just in case you missed it: change the TV’s picture mode.
Did you know that pretty much every TV on the market is not set up to look its best out of the box? This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who regularly reads TV reviews on this (or any other good) AV enthusiast website, but it might surprise the casual shopper, who would assume–and rightly so–that manufacturers would want their products to perform their best right out of the box. Unfortunately, that simply isn’t the case, and it hasn’t been the case through my entire tenure as a video reviewer.
