The AQUOS BD Series is Sharp's line of LCD HDTVs with an integrated Blu-Ray player introduced in 2009. Comprising 5 sizes in total, from 32-52 inches the BD Series shares much in common with Sharp's other 2009 E-Series outside of the onboard Blu-Ray player. The larger sets include the standard features found on mid-range and high-end sets, including 1080p native resolution and 120Hz technology. While the smaller sets retain the resolution and lose the 120Hz tech. Both the E-Series and BD Series lines use the same Advanced Super View panel, and contain the same number of input ports. The Blu-Ray profile on these sets is 1.1 with upgrade to 2.0 being possible with the included USB and ethernet ports.

10-bit panel - as opposed to the 8-bit panel used by the smaller TVs. The extra two bits are used for displaying more picture information which results in an overall better and more vibrant display.
Fine Motion 120Hz - the TV inserts an extra frame between each regular frame from the source, which can be used to reduce video artificats such as "judder" and motion blur. Many people find the motion compensation algorithms distracting however as they can result in what is known as the "Soap Opera Effect". It is unknown as to wether or not you can disable the automatic motion compensation, though it is likely.
