There may be an improvement in the motion handling in the 950 over the 929. That would be a good enough reason to pay the extra for the 950, for that will give you better picture quaility.
Hellotv, why did you return the 929 and buy the 850?
I've asked the question if the motion has been improved in the 950 (or any other items) to owners or people who have done a comparison, but no one has replied as of yet. Here's my prior post:
What's the consensus on the difference between the HX929 vs HX950?
From what I've read here, the stand is different, the number of local dimming zones is the same.
From photos I saw the 929 had an external wi-fi box on the back of the set and the 950 does not. Maybe the 950 has it in the set now?
The 929 had a sensor if someone got close to the tv and the 950 does not.
I've heard that maybe the motion processor has been improved. Can anyone confirm that?
Any other items new or improved on the HX950?
