Sharp spreads 120Hz

The Japanese division of Sharp is releasing three new AQUOS D LCD panels. While all of them are 1080p-capable, their most important contribution may be a 120Hz refresh rate, usually seen only on higher-end TVs. Faster refresh is both easier on the eyes and more accurate in scenes of rapid motion. Each set also has three HDMI inputs, along with DVI-I, Ethernet and RS232C connections. Brightness is being rated at 450cd/m2, with a contrast ratio of 2,000:1; in practicality however, the contrast may be closer to 900:1. The 32-, 37- and 42-inch sets should ship on October 10th for 260,000 ($2,289), 300,000 ($2,642) and 370,000 ($3,258) yen. [via Impress Watch]
