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.
