LG UH6100 LED TV Calibration Settings

For additional settings information, please consult the Common Problems and How to Calibrate pages.

These are the calibration settings that were used to review the LG UH6100. These settings are best for watching movies. For playing video games, first change the input icon to 'Game Console' and 'Picture Mode' to 'Game' before copying the remainder of the settings below. This will provide the lowest input lag. For use as a PC monitor, change the input icon to 'PC' to enable chroma support for clear text.

To begin, select 'Expert (Dark Room)' for the 'Picture Mode'.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 1

For our completely dark room, we set the backlight to 35. This can be adjusted to match your environment without affecting the colors. For bright rooms, increase the backlight to combat glare and reflections. We also adjusted the 'Contrast' to 100 as it provided us the closest gamma curve to our calibration goal. To remove over sharpening, we adjusted the 'H Sharpness'and the 'V Sharpness' to 0.

'Color' and 'Tint' were left at their default values.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 3

We remove the image processing, to achieve the most true image. We also put the 'Color Gamut' to normal and put the 'Gamma' setting to 2.2 as it was the closest match to our calibration goal. If you find blacks are crushed, you can reduce the 'Gamma' to 1.9.

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 4

For the white balance, we use the 'Warm2' color temperature, as it is closest to our calibration goal of 6500K. 

LG UH6100 Calibration Settings 5

The following are the results of the white balance and colorspace calibration on our unit. They are provided for reference, and should not be copied as the calibration values vary per individual unit even for the same model and same size as the TV we reviewed due to manufacturing tolerances. If you want to try them you will need to enter all values shown, as all of them are active at the same time. If you end up with worse picture quality, simply reset them to the default values.

Questions & Answers

Will these settings work for the LG 60UH6030 as well?
Yes. Adjust the 'Backlight' to your preference. Reduce the 'Gamma' to 1.9 if you find blacks are crushed. Also adjust the 'Color Temperature' if you find the image too warm.
What's the difference between the LG UH6100 and the LG UH6150?
We plan to review the UH6150 within the next month, but until then we don't know how it will perform. The UH6150 is available in larger sizes, and has a slightly different design. Other than this, the specifications look identical.
Is the LG 43UH610A available in Costco the same set?
Yes it seems to be the same TV so the review should applied for it too. We updated the review to add this information.
Should I use these calibration settings for the LG 50UH5500 as well? It looks like you guys haven't reviewed that set.
We do have plans to review the UH5500, but it is low on our priorities so won't be for a few months. You can follow the settings for the UH6100, but adjust the backlight to your preference. You can also adjust the color temperature to a cooler value if you find it too warm.
We are not taking any more questions for this product because we no longer have it in our lab.
