Quick Take: Philips's 42PF7320A, which CNET did not review, is similar to the step-up , but there are some important differences. The less-expensive 42PF7320A has first-generation Pixel Plus technology, which may not incorporate the important 2:3 pull-down detection found in the step-up model's Pixel Plus 2 circuitry. We don't know for sure since we haven't tested it, although Philips claims the 42PF7320A has that feature. The 42PF7320A also has different styling, it lacks Philips's trademark Ambilight backlighting, and it doesn't have a memory-card slot for digital photos.
