However, your panel will almost certainly change over the first 100 - 300 hours of usage, which is why D'nice provided two sets of settings - out-of-box, and Post-100 Hours Slides.
I would argue, based upon our experience, that a 2011/12 Panasonic Plasma is likely to experience PQ changes over At Least the first 400 - 500 hours of its life, and generally For The Better.
And the point that others have made that No Two Panels are Exactly Alike should be kept in mind: any group of "universal settings" is unlikely to be Ideal for any Given Panel.
Might make a good starting point, but you are probably better off at least checking with the HD709 disk, or one of the commercial "calibration" disks.
