It is more feature rich even than the 07' 747 in that it has a sub woofer and digital audio out. The only advantage of the 08' 765 over the 07' 265t fhd visible from the spec sheets seems to be the 120hz capability, and that is of questionable value in my opinion. If it can to 5/5 pulldown for 24p material, then that would be advantageous but you can't say from the spec sheets whether or not it does...
The 7 series allows RGB control to offset the colors, so you can dial in a real 6500k.
The 2 series forces you to use only what the factory gave you, so you're stuck with their overly warm 6500k. This is probably why most people prefer the bluer native, although the colors are more off.
That, the amp, speakers, supporting circuits, cabinet design, and the polarized glass (and weight) are the other main differences.
Otherwise they use the same Panel re: same size.
About the 5:5.
You should read up on cadences, particularly 24p cadences, then read up on how the Realta handles cadences.
I think you'll find that the Realta (and one other VP) based TVs don't need 120 hz.
and 120 hz will only benefit and and quite limitedly, lesser VP based TVs that won't be able to handle 3:2 cadences properly anyway.
So 120 hz is not needed with the 265 and the 747. and is only included because the so called 'top tiers' have 120hz.
I think the 7 series was a limited run/test bed for Olevia as well, to see how well they can perform in the upper market.
How do you guys think they're doing so far?
