I'm looking to use the MXO2 Mini with Final Cut Studio and to do color grading with it in Apple Color. I'm aware of the specs (1920x1080, 1:1 pixel mapping etc), but I'm wondering if anyone has any real world experience about whether it's better to get an computer LCD like the Dell 2408WFP or a quality LCD television like a Samsung or Sony 1080P. Are there any differences in calibration between a TV and a computer monitor and does the color gamut rating of the monitor affect the grading quality?

I know Matrox doesn't endorse particular models, just wondering if anyone actually using the product has any input.

I've been trying to get the same answer from various sources for a while but haven't had any luck. From my own research I've decided to go with a Panasonic 1080p plasma TV. In my budget range it seems to still be better color/black wise and have better viewing angles.

I've read several reports of people getting good results from Plasma TVs but I have limited space and all the Plasma sets are far too big. I'd still like to hear from anybody using an LCD TV vs. the Dell.
