After tinkering around with the settings we found the Standard mode to be most suitable for daily usage as well as movies. You could use Dynamic Contrast for games but the only problem with that is if you're playing a dark level it becomes hard. At the native resolution text is very comfortable to read even at a distance of 4ft from the screen. The glossy finish is a real pain due to reflections so you might want to double check your seating area for any light source that may be behind you.
