Yup, it is. However, it's been improved enormously over the years and can deliver very nice pictures nowadays. LightBoost is another way that this has been significantly improved.
Thing is, it's real simple to implement, because the backlight simply has to be flashed synchronously with the refresh rate. This makes for smooth motion at the expense of flicker, but at 120Hz you can't see the flicker anyway (just make it switchable). This should be a must-have upgrade for any monitor that purports to be made for gaming or any kind of animation. Even the desktop looks a lot better.
