LG actually lists the contrast ratio of the sl90 series being higher than the lh90 series. 3 million compared to 2 million. Unless they used different methods of measuring it or just made the numbers up out of thin air, it should be at least somewhat better. Seems hard to achieve being edge lit but knows who it actually comes out.
It doesn't have the 240hz "effect" like the lh90 but that may not be too important. The way LG does 240hz is by using a rapid flashing backlight along with the TV running at 120hz. Apparently this reduces motion blur further but Cnet says it isn't as good as real 240hz.
Since the sl90 is edge lit the rapid flashing backlight can't be implemented, which is why it is only 120hz.
I do like how the sl90 series includes a decent amount of analog inputs compared to the Samsung LED series. 2 components and 2 composites compared to the only 1 component input on the Samsungs.
