That's my point. It's not until later that the problem shows up. Based on my conversation at CES in 2014 with a couple of JVC VP's, and they were blue-suited gray haired types, they were not...

What does CA(Clear Action) do?

Edit: I just read it ups the hz to 120, 180, or 240hz, not sure which on the P series. So isn't a higher refresh rate supposed to be the same as "Reduce Motion Blur"?

So can you tell me which one to buy and how to apply it to the 1500 for the effect that it is being sold for in Germany; better blacks and better contrast.
