Panasonic plasma questions

I just ordered a panasonic 42in plasma st30 I'll be getting this in a week or so, I really hope I made the right discussion, it was between the samsung led or the panasonic 42in plasma st30 I couldn't go bigger because the size of the room, or I would've, Is there anything I should know when I set everything up, like calibration settings whats the best way to set that part up? I mean is there any kind of settings it should be? or should I buy a calibration dvd to help with settings? and how long should I burn it in to avoid this?

Thanks

No need to bother with slides - just avoid dynamic mode and lower contrast, brightness and sharpness for a while.

Also - try and avoid having bright, static channel logos or gaming graphics on the screen for too long to start with.

As Scooby says, its best reading on Panasonic owners fourm.

I would keep your Plasma on Movie, Cinema mode/s for the first 200 hours (burn in period) & dont have the contrast turned up to much.
The calibration dvd's will only help slightly (5-10%) Its best to get a screen profesionally calibrated by someone in your area (ISF or THX) for best results :smashin:

Just add i think no one should realy consider a Pro. Calibration or any other on this years models until at least 500 hours on the clock.:)
