It's funny you should mention the HX929. I was at a local electronics store and the guy wasn't that keen on the ST30, saying it was an average quality plasma, but he was raving about the HX929, saying it was going to be a real game changer. Why? Because it's 960 HZ.
On the Canadian Sonystyle site they conveniently do not provide that information; however, on the US Sonystyle site they list the HZ under the specs and it's not 960 but 240 HZ. You can see it here:http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...specifications
Aspect Ratio : 16:9
Display Resolution : Full HD 1080p
Dynamic Contrast Ratio : Infinite6
Panel Frequency : 240Hz
Screen Size (measured diagonally) : 46"
Viewing Angle (Right/Left) : 178 (89/89)
Viewing Angle (Up/Down) : 178 (89/89)
Frankly, as great as the HX929 looks, I'm really not into buying from a company that is will to provide fraudulent information to its customers.
I'm going to check out that Panny ST30 downtown tomorrow.
Sony Canada might want to clearly state on their site what HZ their TVs are rated at, since their re-sellers clearly are making it up as they go.
