I did a lot of research before buying and afterwards on settings. I didn't use a calibration device, but I still expect it to be better than it is, and I doubt calibration would fix the color banding.
Maybe I'm just extremely picky?

My new iPad, on the other hand, looks very similar to the hardware calibrated $1000 NEC ips LCD monitors at work. It has zero banding in gradients. The backlight color is a bit uneven, and it doesn't have quite the viewing angles as a Plasma, but those are very minor issues.

I do see color banding, but it seems to be dependent on on the source rather than the display (you would see the banding on anything). But most of the other things either sound like a faulty set or bad settings. It's also possible that I'm just blind or that you're particularly picky, I suppose. Tough to say without seeing!
