So I messed around with my buddy's 64 E8000 last night and tried out the CNET settings and they looked washed out.... pretty unimpressive as I assumed they would be based on other people's comments.
I tested out the ones provided on plasma tv buying guide . com and they made the picture look pretty darn good.... There is no color space info offered so I left that set at AUTO and used the CNET White balance settings.... I used the 10p White Balance #'s from the plasma tv web site. (NOTE: EDIT OUT THE SPACES FOR THAT WEBSITE, forum made it all ****'s)
Upped the cell light to 20 & sharpness to 27 and the PQ looked night and day better than the CNET settings did.
One other trick I have learned on my 64D8000 is that for regular TV or movies, watch in WARM2 but for any sports switch the setting to STANDARD and the picture looks great.
Far from real calibrating, but it makes the picture look impressive enough for me. Try it out and let me know how it works on your 51E8000.
