Standard LED, Local-dimming LED, Intelligent Peak LED contrast graphs:

Doesn’t seem like a huge amount of changes, mostly higher brightness with “Intelligent Peak LED” and “Impulse” mode being brought over from the other models this year. Hopefully there will be an increase in dimming zones, but as usual Sony doesn’t mention how many there are.
Does anyone know whether you can disable the Intelligent Peak LED dimming algorithm? (any HX929 owners out there?) I prefer the “standard” LED dimming algorithm, as it keeps peak brightness where I set it, rather than going for maximum contrast at all times.
