FWIW, this is a brit review of the (I think) European equivalent [TX-37LZD
800] of the North American version [TX-37LZ800] of the top-of-the-line new Panny's.
I was trying to google up some info on the Motion Focus Technology
vs. the Motion Picture Pro 2 technology
. According to this review this set has both
technologies. I am now really confused, but this seems to be the norm with Panny's marketing and I am coming to expect it
The online store ads specifications seem to indicate there are only three HDMI connections (two rear and one side) rather than the four that this review mentions and which, if memory serves, is what the January 2008 press release indicated there would be (four not three). And there is, of course, the indicator from Crutchfield that "No" means there is no 120 Hz refresh (Motion Picture Pro 2).
At the risk of reading too much into this, there are significant differences (beyond the omission of the four HDMI connections) between the European version and the U.S. version of this set. However, I am reluctant to accept that and would conclude that Panasonic's marketing team either omitted the Motion Picture Pro 2
line item spec because it was 'old news' (last year's innovation) or that the technology is 'wrapped' in the newer term (for simplicity) Motion Focus Technology
. Then, too, the reviewer could be completely off base, which I am incline to doubt.
Did someone say he wanted to go first?
