The FSI monitor is great and FSI is a great company. I'm not super happy with the black levels, but it's LCD so what can you do? If you're grading for broadcast, there's actually a pretty good argument to use that you should grade on a LCD because that's how it's largely going to be seen. FSI will also calibrate the monitor for you for free as much as you want for the life of the monitor. Just send it back and they'll calibrate it and ship it back to you. I've talked with several monitor companies and I really like FSI as a company. After all, you're not just buying a monitor, you're investing in a company to be your partner.

The PVM OLED screen is amazing! Black was true black. In a black room with no ambient light, when a white title is shown on a black field, there is no evidence of any screen edge. It's incredible. My understanding is that the PVM might not be as color faithful as the BVM as they use the same panel, but use the best of the line for the BVM and add more color management features in the BVM. Also, the PVM isn't available yet because of the crisis in Japan. So you'd be buying a monitor and buying into a technology that is brand new. You don't know what the issues could be. It could be great or it could be full of frustrating problems.

Honestly, the JVCs aren't great. The viewing angles are incredibly disappointing. Even with one person sitting in front of it, it's hard to know what viewing angle is right.
