Someone posted about a deal on this monitor so I decided to check it out and it looks like it could be a really great display for someone who is willing to take a chance and would not miss having a louver filter, it obviously is based off of the ST60 but appears to be a much later design with some extra power under the hood (even more juice than the 55VT60)
Looking at the boards there are a few differences
50PB2 / 50ST60 / 55VT60
Based on a few observations it is pretty likely there is NO bi-leveldrive technology used on this model, that would put it in league with maybe the UT50 in terms of gradation but squarely above the ST60 in terms of overall light output (in the same way the ST is brighter than VT) and that is without the other improvements
Has anyone here seen this model or know what it performs like in the real world?

Anybody seen this one yet? they won't be around for long
I heard alot of people say "Oh I missed the boat, I would buy the ST60 if this or that" well keep in mind this model is not slowed down by a mediatek processor it has a much more capable dedicated processor
My monitor has an earlier version of that processor and even without HDMI 1.4a support there is good support for custom refresh rates, e.g
100 Hz up to 1680x945
120 Hz up to 1536x864
125 Hz up to 1488x837
