Stripped of all home network and Internet connectivity, the EX500 and EX400 budget LCD televisions use CCFL backlighting to display 1080p high-definition content. The EX500 has Motionflow 100Hz refresh rate technology, and is available in 55in, 46in, 40in and 32in sizes. The EX400, however, is only available in a 32in model and refreshes at 50Hz.
If you still want to play your own media on these TVs, you're in luck: the built-in USB media player recognises MP3 audio, JPEG and RAW photos as well as DivX, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4 and AVC/AVCHD video formats.
