Congrats! This new Kuro model IS pretty exciting.
For break-in, D-Nice recommends Evangelo2's Break-in DVD
In order to save the wear and tear on a DVD player, I was originally going to use the thumbdrive break-in images, but the x00Ms don't include a USB port, so I don't think this is an option (unless you do it through a receiver/PS3 that includes a USB port).
As for ISF calibration, I'm not overly concerned whether it has it or not. Like the CNet Elite review said, "We found Pure mode to be the most-accurate overall, to the point where we really didn't have to use all of those controls to get it to look its best."
If I can get 99% PQ using Pure and the other public settings, that's enough for me. ISF calibration is just one more thing to spend a lot of time and/or money tweaking.
With that said -- and not to beat a dead horse
-- the 600M manual DOES contain references to ISF and ISF Day/Night modes. They show up in the sections describing the Web Control System. Of course, they could just be a carry-over from the European 600M manual. This whole European vs. North American 600M issue is pretty confusing
