If you turn it off, you will see banding with some content, especially cable. If you turn it On, then the banding goes away. I wish I had a demo video to show this but you can really see this will lower bit rate content in sky scenes, etc..
I found the jpg below that shows what i'm talking about. I think this is a pretty significant plus for the Sony. If you have Smoothing Off then you get the picture on the left, On you get the picture on the right.
