I got WoW as a Christmas gift (had it as a wish list item for a while) and I was very impressed with it. It's easy to use with different levels (Beginner, Advanced, and Expert). It will walk you through everything and has excellent test patterns. it also handles audio, though I didn't use it for that (my receiver has Audyssey).

It was created by Richard Casey (RBFilms on AVS) and he did a good job putting it all together. I didn't go through the beginner stuff, but even the advanced was easy to follow.

Here's a link to the review and thread for WoW. You won't be disappointed with this disc.

I have WoW, S&M and DVE (accumulated over a few years). Not sure for most people's use there is that much difference between them from a pattern standpoint. The WoW disk has more tutorial content than S&M. If you are just doing a "cal" by eye, any of them will provide the basic patterns to set the user controls. If you intend to use a meter and software, that's a different story. In that case I would actually download the free AVSHD test disc image which has sequences of patterns for CalMAN, ChromaPure and HCFR.
