i am using a panasonic plasma 42" for color correction.
i am very satisfied with my results, since i use a colorimeter and the calman software to calibrate it right. the "onboard-THX" mode isnt quite what it should be, eg the gamma isnt 2.2 at all.
but with a little patience and experience i was able to calibrate it very accurately...
the neopdp display has an excellent black level. consider the size of the plasma, sometimes i do think 42" is very big for my enviroment, but then the bigger the better to spot halos or noise during the grading-process.

Thanks Andy, what colorimeter are you using ?
Is your plasma the exactly the TC-P50G25 ?

no. i am using the tx-p42gw20, if i am recalling this right (i am not at home at the moment).
i am using the spyder elite in combination with the windows calman v40 software.

Im using a Sony FWD-50PX2 plasma and looks great except for the scan issues during mid to fast motion. Now with my experience this dont say much so any info as to what works well for other experienced users are welcome :)

The TC-P50VT25 is a much better buy, been researching Jeff Kilgore's posts and he finds it very good so far. Just found out it has ISFccc and the g25 doesn't. It's a 900 dollars difference but you get a better panel and it is 3d for whenever you need it.

I have some lower thirds and bugs permanitly burned into this monitor. For some reason it didn't go to sleep or power down when I left the studio.
The Monitor is now worthless.
Warning to all to want to deal with Plasmas for pro work.
