    How do these 180/360 (E5/E50/ET50) Backlight Scanning models compare to 120/240Hz panels?

    An excellent question. We updated the post to inlclude the native refresh rate and the number of scanning sections. In Panasonic marketing lingo “backlight scanning” is:
    refresh x backlight sections= “backlight scanning“. i.e. 240 x 8=1920, 120 x 3 = 360 and 60 x 3=180.
