I have looked long and hard at both and there is better picture control with the sony, and the big problem with the WD-Y65 is that you can NOT turn off Sharp Edge. On fast moving images i.e. sports, etc. with Sharp Edge on the image will tear at times. With Sharp Edge off...no problems with the image. Do a search on the WD-XX831 thread for more information. If you like the Mits, go look at the WD-65732 or WD-65831 for better picture control. Both models can be found on closeout at Fry's, and look at this years WD-65734, it supports the latest HDMI 1.3 and X.V. color.
