In this contrast ratio segment, Leisure 3 supports 2000:1 whereas Leisure 470 supports 3,500:1. A higher contrast ratio of Leisure 470 will produce more shades from black to white which give more natural look to the images on the screen.
As per specs, Leisure 3 claims that it can produce ANSI Lumens 2500 brightness and for Leisure 470 it is 4000 Lumens. However, we are little sceptical about these claims after going through many user comments.
