I have never viewed the 95 model. I had the Sony HW30 with the Darblet and I thought this had an outstanding picture. That was until I upgraded to the HW55. The contrast and RC on the 55 are stunning to say the least. I have zero complaints on the motion for sports, video games, TV, and movies on the HW55. I also sold my Darblet because I think the 55 is better than the 30 with the Darblet. Sony HW55 is an amazing projector through my eyes.
