The purple/green banding can be a lot worse than subtle under many
circumstances.  From what I understand this is just part of how plasma
displays work and can't be avoided.  Calibration makes the problem
worse, in my experience.  The only solution I've found is to get a
secondary monitor for comparison that is not plasma.
