Samsung Preset Color Accuracy

As mentioned in the Samsung Menu & Set-Up section of the review, the Samsung looks awful unless the UHD Color setting is enabled since doing so enabled YCbCr 4:4:4 support, and corrects the unexplainably weird and skewed preset gamma.  Once the UHD Color setting is enabled the gamma changes from very strange black crush inducing reversed S curve to a fairly linear line trying, but falling slightly short of the linear 2.2 target.  Enabling UHD Color vastly improves the image quality, but the Samsung still suffers from a very strong blue tint since the Color Tone setting is preset to Cool.  Also, when connected to my PC the maximum brightness was greatly limited until I enabled the Game mode which is also located in the sub menu in the the External Settings menu.  Without both the Game and UHD Color settings enabled, the maximum brightness was limited to an extremely dim 90cdm/2 when the Warm 2 Color Tone setting was enabled. 

The Samsung becomes very accurate once the Game Mode, UHD Color and Warm 2 color setting are enabled.  The gamma is slightly too low, and a slight blue tint is still present, but these flaws are minor and to be expected from an affordable TV.  The 43NU7100 offers excellent image quality for an affordable VA panel once the UHD Color, Game Mode (when connected to a PC) and Warm 2 color settings are selected.
