Using vivid mode, enhanced colors and some better viewings but more electric usage and bad for eyes as it's brighter. Usually stores use that mode as they are in bigger and open spaces.

The term you are looking for is not "sharper", "clearer" or "enhanced" - the so-called "vivid" mode is equivalent to turning up the Contrast setting on most TVs. It produces unnaturally brighter colours and darker shadows to make the picture "pop" more at a casual glance. But it also costs you picture detail, and is not recommended for that reason. There can also be more ghosting and image retention due to the brighter picture areas, as well as a slightly higher power consumption in some cases (depending on your backlight type).

Another reason Not to use "Vivid" is your pixels won't last as long... Use "movie mode" or something similar, your tv will thank you.

It would still probably last beyond the average life of the TV. I don't believe there's been a study that shows how Vivid mode affects LEDs on a TV though so it's probably little more than conjecture.

I wouldn't worry about using Vivid mode. The TV should last many years using it or not.

From a colour accuracy standpoint, "Theater" mode is usually the most accurate out of the box and that's what I use.

The TV will last longer than your eyes from watching vivid. TV's these days last almost forever.

Vivid is great when the room is bright with sunlight.

Movie is the most accurate as everyone said.
