Has it been verified that these have an actual refresh rate of 480 or are they 120 or 240 with backlight strobing? LG's "Tru-Motion 480" could be as fudgeable as Samsungs 960 "Clear Motion Rate", and since Vizio's just a marketing company they probably don't know what they're actually selling. I think maybe we're looking at 240hz sets with backlight strobing.
In any case Panny comes right out and tells you their WT series is
a true refresh rate of 240hz with 8x "backlight scanning" to give 1920! At least this confirms they have a true panel refresh rate of 240hz.
With TVs going up to 480hz now is the 120 of the latest 2012 Panasonic models mean it is a dead technology and pretty much bargain basement?
Should the 2012s be avoided at all costs due to lack of, at the very least, 240hz displays?
I wouldn't avoid them due to features but performance at the cost of other competitors in the same bracket but better PQ. The Pannys seem to have poor color accuracy and contrast.
