    I have my contrast set to max... I hardly notice a difference until it's like 18 notches down from that, then it starts getting dark..

    What is the best contrast setting to have for the best picture?

    High Contrast
    Low Contrast
    Or a Medium Setting?

    I'm trying to get the perfect settings to play my console games on...

    There are a maximum of 63 notches for Color, Contrast and Brightness.

    I have my:

    Color on 51 (12 notches from the maximum)
    Contrast on 63 (Maximum)
    Brightness on 34 (29 notches from the maximum)

    I think I have the best settings...Any suggestions?

    You'll have to experiment but as high as possible is probly not the way to go.

    thats only for monitors, TV changes a lot, you should try mixing everything up and find the best for your eyes

    I havn't really noticed that contrast makes things brighter, it really makes it look more or less like, faded-to-nothing, more then dark. I play in perfect darkness, with the only light coming from the TV... I've been playing with the contrast about 5 notches down, and 3 notches down and now on maximum fully, and it looks the same.

    And it looks really vibrant and alive.

    the picture gets dark because some colors are not actually what they appear to be-- they are achieving their appearance by blurring two colors together so that you SEE them as a single color. sort of like if you mix a bunch of blue and red pixels into the same area, they might end up looking like purple... or some black pixels and white pixels together might look like grey. raising the contrast too high destroys that effect.

    Color seems fine with contrast on [+] (Max)

    increase the saturation and maybe reduce the brightness. can't tell you by how much, since i don't know what your picture is like... but that's basically how to do it.
