For an entry level model we were impressed with the 120 Hz refresh rate, it does
lack the 14-bit panel from the medium range models, and the contrast levels are that
of a entry level model. It's still a 1080p Full high definition set! All-in-all for
the price you get a fast set with good full high definition resolution.

1080p Full HD CineSpeed™ LCD Display -- Today’s highest resolution video content
is 1920 x 1080 for over 2,000,000 pixels. A standard 720p HD display has less than
1,000,000 display pixels, and must discard half of the original video content, resulting
in decreased picture detail. On the other hand, a 1080p Full HD Display has over
2,000,000 display pixels, maintaining the full video resolution and clarity. A CineSpeed™
Display has an LCD Response Time of 8ms or less to ensure that the display is also
fast enough for high quality home theater.
ClearFrame™ 120Hz -- Doubles the video frames from 60 per second to 120 per second
to reduce any motion blur that could be caused by fast action video. By using advanced
motion vector frame interpolation, it improves picture clarity without affecting
picture brightness or adding flicker. For those that prefer a more fi lm-like picture,
there is also a 5:5 Pull-Down option available.
DynaLight™ Dynamic Backlight -- Utilizes advanced histogram image processing to monitor
the brightness level of each video frame and automatically adjusts the backlight
intensity based on the image content. This precise signal analysis allows for 256
levels of backlight control and can create a Dynamic Contrast that is 7 to 10 times
that of the original panel
contrast. The result is a powerful picture with deep blacks for increased detail
and incredible depth.
Gaming Mode -- Enhances the gaming experience by reducing game controller delay.
The Gaming Mode allows the video signal to bypass select picture circuitry to shorten
the overall signal to screen time. This provides an approximate 33 millisecond response
improvement for 60Hz models and 48 millisecond response improvement for 120Hz models
virtually eliminating controller delay.
