The 7400 Series from Philips is their 2008 high-end line of high-definition LCD televisions and feature a 1080p native resolution with 120Hz refresh rate. While most high-end televisions from competing manufacturers incorporate the 120Hz refresh rate, Philips has the lowest marketed response time with 2ms. Whether this response time means anything when the set is in your home remains to be seen. The 7400 series is a step up from the 5600 series with its 120Hz processing. Alongside this added feature is a refresh rate and response time, as well as more powerful speakers. The other notable difference is the use of the Perfect Pixel 3 processing engine which Philips markets as being noticeably more advanced than the Pixel Pure technology found in the less expensive lines.
