NuVision bringing 120Hz "FX5" tech to Lucidium LCDs

Falling right in line with just about every other LCD manufacturer, NuVision will be incorporating 120Hz tech into its Lucidium line of LCDs later this year. But we all know that "120 Hz" spec won't stand out on the box art, so the company is calling it FX5, or "Film Times Five." At least this name might help consumers understand all 120 of those Hertz are meant to make an exact five-fold increase of 24 fps film for judder-free viewing. The "more Hertz is better" mentality will probably prevail, but at least we can hope, right? The FX5 designation will be spread across 42-, 47- and 52-inch models, named NVU42FX5, NVU47FX5 and NVU52FX5, respectively. Based on some reviews, though, we're hoping NuVision makes more than just this feature change to the sets, or lowers the prices by the time these appear in Q4.
