Default What is "3D Color Management"

Hi,
I'm contemplating between Panasonic TC-P42S1 and TC-P42G15
Their specs are almost identical besides the following few things.

S1 G15
x.v.Color No Yes
THX Mode No Yes
3D Color Management No Yes
VIERA Image Viewer? N Y
SD Memory Card Slot Y N
PC Input No Mini D-sub 15-pin x 1 (side)
Analog Audio Output No 1
VIERA Cast™ (IPTV) No Yes

I don't care about the VIERA or the SD Card features, but are the others worth the extra $60?

Thanks.

Check this out - http://www.panasonic.ca/english/audi.../lcd/viera.asp

It is just another "auto" feature which you would probably want to turn off anyway.

From their website it sounds like a neat feature. Why do you think I'd turn it off?
BTW I've never owned a HDTV, so aside from reading these forums I have no clue how these features actually look.

So S1 or G15?

The reason most "enhancements" get turned off is because they alter the source material, and many of us want the picture to match the source material, not alter it. You will never know how much they get altered if the panel does it, and issues DO arise from them.

So I got the TC-P42G15 and I absolutely love it. I haven't had a chance to play around with the settings yet, but Cablevision HD channels look great.
Thanks for your input PFC5 and Scottnot.
