Samsung Menu & Set-Up

Only the most important menu photos will be posted here.

Unlike the Sony which costs significantly more, the Samsung can not automatically detect the source and decide which Picture mode to switch to, nor can it be easily set to the Game mode which vastly reduces the input lag to a nearly negligible amount of 8ms versus the lowest 2-3ms top screen Leo Bodnar device measurements:

The Game Mode must be manually enabled in the External Device Manager menu, as does full resolution 3840x2160 and YCbCr 4:4:4 chroma sub-sampling support which must be turned on in the HDMI UHD Color sub-menu.  Once this is activated the RGB Full and YCbCr 4:4:4 option show up in the Nvidia control panel while only YCbCr 2:2:2 was available before activating UHD Color.  The maximum brightness and color accuracy vastly improved once the HDMI UHD Color setting was enabled, for measurements and more information refer to the Samsung Preset Color Accuracy section of the review.

Once the input lag reduced Game Mode setting is activated in the External Device Manager menu, travel back up to the Picture Menu.  When connected to my PS4 Pro and Xbox One S the Picture Mode menu was not greyed out, but was when connected to my PC.  This isn't an issue since the other modes are useless aside from the Standard mode which allows one to use the mediocre motion compensation feature.

Click on Expert Settings to access the back-light controls and color adjustments.  The settings shown below are my calibrated settings:

Scroll down to access even more settings including the extremely importent Warm2 Color Tone setting which is preset to Cool which causes the Samsung to suffer from a strong blue tint.  Once Warm2 is selected the color accuracy increases significantly.  The BT.1886 setting either decreases (-) or increases (+) the gamma.

The White Balance menu contains the RGB Gain and Offset settings while the 20 Point setting contains even more, but are not accessible when the Game Mode is selected.

Here are my calibrated RGB Gain and Off-Set settings which I don't advise using since the Samsung is accurate enough once the Warm2 Color Tone setting is selecting.
