They should. If they don't then they might as well not do a shootout as there hasn't been any other new releases worthy of inclusion since the last shootout.

I'm returning my Panny VT50 and getting one of these. Hopefully it will be at least as good as my old XBR8 was (r.i.p.). And hopefully this one will last more than 4 years before it dies.

Bazinga!

The Panny VT50 leaves a lot to be desired after having an XBR8 for nearly 4 years. I'm a little pissed at Sony for having their old flagship die on me so quickly, so that's why I gave the top rated plasma an honest try, but it falls short in these areas, crudely sorted in importance to me:
Plasma dithering / pixel noise: it is like an extra layer of film grain is always on. You never can get a constant picture. For an HTPC guy like myself, it is extremely annoying. The whites are not quite white, and they have a lot of dithering noise dancing in them.
Flicker. It flickers badly at 1080p60, even worse at 1080p24 at 48Hz, and still annoyingly at 1080p24 at 96Hz.
The blacks are only a dark gray, and when looking closely at a mostly black scene, I can even see horizontal lines moving in the blackness. Fade to black scenes on my old XBR8 were totally pitch black.
Image retention / burn-in: geeze, I didn't think it would be this bad. You bump up the panel brightness so it looks good, but it burns in quickly. Keep things dim, it burns in more slowly.
Fan noise. Those things are whiny. I'm not too concerned about the power & heat, but when they require fan noise louder than my HTPC, it is too much.
It doesn't happen all the time, but in some movement, especially in flesh tones and contrasting images, I could see a red or green shadow trailing the movement. Very annoying when it happens.
Inconsistency in the brightness. If you have a small amount of white in the scene, that white is brighter than if most of the scene is white. Very annoyingly noticeable for HTPC use with different things happening in various windows.
But the Panny does a reasonably good job of having bright and dark pixels right next to each other.

After having a local dimming zone Sony TV, you get spoiled, and it is hard to go back to anything else. They aren't perfect, but for the price and the features/performance that is important to me, it is what I want.

Bazinga!

I would add buzzing to your list (if your hearing is good). Went through 3 sets of the 60GT50 and I couldn't deal with the buzzing, I could hear it from 12-15 ft away. Why Panasonic hasn't tightened QC to deal with this issue is beyond me. cool.gif

Also very anxious about hearing reviews on the HX950. If they come back positive, I'm getting a 65" ASAP.

Then you and I will be trading posts for along time to come. If this set gets good reviews I will be purchasing a 65 as well. This is only subject to Sharp NOT coming out with a new Elite set.

That's one of the reasons why I returned my VT50. The buzzing was so bad I could hear it constantly.

The 950 will be pretty much the same as the 929. Only significant more dimming zones/leds would make it a better TV than the 929 so check that aspect out first wink.gif

seems that (55''?) 950 has 196 zones
http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/sony-xbr-65hx950/4505-6482_7-35431355.html


2008 - 55'' xbr8 112 dimming zones

2010 - 52'' xbr hx909 96 dimming zones

2011/2012 - 55'' xbr hx929 105 dimming zones

Proportionally, the 55" had more dimming zones than 60" SHARP ELITE

It also says the processing was improved. Maybe they will be controlling the dimming with more accuracy to block the haloing

Surpised this has not been posted. Here's a video of the TV in action at IFA on August the 31st. It's hard to really evaluate the blooming on the set due to the crude camera they used to record the television with, but from what I can see, bloom looks to have been drastically reduced on the 950. The video's they are showing off on the set with would be a blooming nightmare on the 929. It's looking like we might have a david to go up against the Sharp goliath.

Wish a new Sony like this one supported direct display control with something like CalMan. That might make an already tempting set just a tad more tempting for some . . .

Honestly, being Sony, adding a feature like that would probably raise the price. tongue.gif

I may be wrong because I am no pro at LCD technology, but when the intelligent peak led letters come up at the .40 second mark on the black background in that video it looks like major blooming all around it. Can anyone help me out on this

Folks posted videos of the hx929 on Utube in which blooming was really bad. They explained that it wasn't really that bad as in the videos - also you do not know wether its blooming or content. You must watch stuff like PS3 pause button in a dark room on and off axis in the store if you want to be able to make proper blooming, also known as haloing, judgement (in extreme cases).

That glow you see around the intelligent peak text is from the camera. The background and the text are very extreme in contrast. Think about it, black and white are at the opposite ends of the color spectrum. I could produce similar results with a low grade camera. In fact, with most mobile phones, you'll see similar results snapping a photo or recording a video. When he adjusts the exposure shortly after that, such issues are alleviated with the camera. From the reflection of him in the glass of the screen, it looks like he is using nothing more than a cell phone camera or a small pocket camera at most.


As for the 929, yes, if you record that TV off angle it looks like a blooming nightmare. That was one of the weakest aspects of that television, you really had to view it straight on because its off axis viewing angles were quite weak.

Does anyone know which 3D glasses are compatible with the hx950 yet? The Accessories tab off Sony's HX950 page shows the titanium frame ones (TDG-BR750), but those look like they'd get some bad reflections around the outside edges of the unframed lenses.

I wonder if the calibrators will be doing a review of this set once they get them in stock, or if they will not really care because it's a late season entry? Looking forward to a Chad B or D nice review

It'll be the same as previous Sony sets. Sony has been using the same standard forever leaving it to consumers to basically pick out which glasses they like the best. I like the minimalistic design of those 750's, but I'm worried the frame less design will hamper the 3D effect. The glasses that block off all your vision and only allow you to see out of the lenses will be the most immersive because they block out all outside light.

It's just like the Nintendo Virtual Boy. It had a piece of foam around the visor to block out outside light. If you played it without the foam, it impacted the 3D effect quite a bit.

I saw it at CEDIA, and it looked very promising. The room wasn't dark, but blooming seemed to be well under that of the HX929. I hope I can get one to review.

The release dates are sept 12 for the 55'' and oct 3 for the 65'' in the US.
There are yet no official dates for Canada.
A Sony Canada sales rep told me the most probable date was end of sept.
My dealer has them on order and he is expecting a shipment by mid oct.
Prices should be the same as last year 929 series.

Who's your dealer in Canada? I have to get mine from FutureShop as I have a large store credit with them ($3k) so I'm hoping they get the 65s by mid October.

You are then stuck with FS who should get your 65'' by mid oct also.

You have the exact same situation as me.... Love plasma .....but the IR in the VT 50 scares me. The wife would kill me if I said here's a new 3500 TV and look!!!!!! Last weeks Espn logo is still there

I love Sony and most of my sets have been Sony except for a non Kuro Plasma I had back in the day. I do love Sony and hope they, Sharp and Panasonic can turn things around. I can't stand Samsung and it is the only set I have ever tried that was DOA.

Now that I have that out of the way, and to the poster that went from XBR8 to plasma and now misses the excellent XBR8, I can tell you that I moved my 55 XBR8 to the bedroom and purchased the Elite 70 for the living room. I mainly wanted a set that was good as the XBR8 but bigger. 70 is great. If there was an 80 Elite might have tried to squeeze out more nickels to cover it.

What I got was a set that is superior to the XBR8. The blacks, contrast and picture quality is just better. The flash lighting is almost non existent and was very apparent in the XBR8 but still it was better than others.

The color issue is played out. Perhaps things are not perfect but I have never experienced anything but a great HD experience. No it's not perfect but it's pretty close for me.

It wasn't until I had both of these sets in my house as an owner to really see how much better the Elite is. But damn it's nice having the 55XBR8 in the bedroom!!

I hope Sony has a great set here but I do think it will have to be a major tech upgrade over the Sony XBR8 to surpass the Elite. This from an owner of both and a fan of Sony.

Hope it's a great product. PS if this were an owners thread I would not have posted.
I would not count out the Elite if shopping for a new set but that's just me.

Rick

Now that I have that out of the way, and to the poster that went from XBR8 to plasma and now misses the excellent XBR8, I can tell you that I moved my 55 XBR8 to the bedroom and purchased the Elite 70 for the living room. I mainly wanted a set that was good as the XBR8 but bigger. 70 is great. If there was an 80 Elite might have tried to squeeze out more nickels to cover it.
What I got was a set that is superior to the XBR8. The blacks, contrast and picture quality is just better. The flash lighting is almost non existent and was very apparent in the XBR8 but still it was better than others.
The color issue is played out. Perhaps things are not perfect but I have never experienced anything but a great HD experience. No it's not perfect but it's pretty close for me.
It wasn't until I had both of these sets in my house as an owner to really see how much better the Elite is. But damn it's nice having the 55XBR8 in the bedroom!!
I hope Sony has a great set here but I do think it will have to be a major tech upgrade over the Sony XBR8 to surpass the Elite. This from an owner of both and a fan of Sony.
Hope it's a great product. PS if this were an owners thread I would not have posted.
I would not count out the Elite if shopping for a new set but that's just me.
