I have experienced very good results using a standard LED TV/monitor (Samsung 32" 1080P for instance) which has the option of Blue Screen Only.
With the monitor in the BSO mode, I feed SMPTE Color Bars (Pluge pattern) into it and adjust accordingly. The accuracy is well within tolerances and has consistently performed at a highly acceptable level. The proof has been when after editing, color correcting, grading, outputting to various media and playing back on other monitors be it flat screen or CRT the colorimetry is constantly predictable... which is ultimately what we are all after. However having said that... nothing beats a multi-thousand dollar monitor set-up... that is set correctly. I'm also in camp with not relying on just a "standard" computer monitor (Apple, Dell, etc.) for color accuracy.

I like the idea of having a blue only capable HDMI monitor for color correction. How do you know what HDTVs have this option? I couldn't find any info at b and h.Dreyfus: Give me ten men like Clouseau and I could destroy the world.
