First, make sure you are using "Standard" mode. DO NOT use any of the other modes unless you really need access to any of the locked-out settings (you shouldn't). "Night View Mode" in particular is VERY BAD and will destroy your black levels completely.
Brightness: 55 (feel free to adjust this one up or down based on preference)
Color Temp.: User Mode - Red 90/Green 90/Blue 90 (this monitor is wonderfully neutral, I was surprised)
Smart View: Off
TraceFree: 60 (40 is also good, and might be more desirable for non-gaming instances of motion on-screen)
