Reasons For

4 Reasons For
A lot faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 55PFL6921 has a motion interpolation frequency of 120Hz, but the Sony XBR-55X700 is only a 60Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (60Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.
