Came across a UN40JU6500 for free. This guide was super helpful in getting me a baseline setup (especially the end part to verify 4.4.4) Thank you!!

Ooof. This tv has a horrific blue tint to it. Read somewhere on the net that this may be due to it living most of its life with the backlight turned waaay up. Reset to factory defaults, updated from 12x firmware to 15x with no change. RGB mode, full, 4k 60hz resolution. Both PC and game mode look like this. Trying to adjust it out best I can with tv settings (2 point gain settings) and nvidia desktop color settings... not getting very far.

Any tips?

Interesting....i'll look into that. Not sure exactly what is wrong with this TV yet. Seems overly blue and very washed out to me. Spent the last 4 hours dicking with it, played some rdr2 @ 4k on a 2070. Looks horrific when game mode is activated. Only HDMI 1 can activate the UHD color mode.

I have the 48” curved version of this TV. I used rtings settings as a baseline.

Anyone have experience with the samsung UN43NU6900 as a pc monitor? I currently have a 35" 3440x1440 100hz monoprice that is moving to a different desk. My previous experience with a 43" 4k tv was bad as it wasn't far enough back, used RGBW, and it was a sceptre.
