There has been some reluctance to begin this thread (I cant imagine why
), but here it goes. Of course, because this is an OWNERS discussion thread, there should be no expectation of unbiased opinions from this thread. I have observed that many of the owners of this Pioneer PRO-FHD1 Elite 50'' 1080p PureVision Plasma Monitor
are overcome by their unbridled exuberance in SHOUTING to the world about their phenomenal new acquisitionand have, in fact, dubbed this display to be the KING

2.)\tLocating the recommended settings to use during the break-in period
Therefore, I kick-off this thread of by posting these setting from D-Nice's plasma break-in thread. Although, I seem to recall that when I put them in...there was 1 or 2 items that did not apply.
The picture did look better after I made the adjustments below.
