Figured I would give my input on the 55" model after returning the 65" model. I originally purchased the 65" H9F, but I returned it and kept my 65X950G as the Sony had an overall better image. I saw that the 55" was available at a store near me and I wanted to give it a try and possibly use it as a guest room set. Unfortunately, the 55" H9F and the 65" H9F are completely different televisions. The color, contrast, sharpness, are all much worse than the 65" H9F. Where as the 65" H9F was extremely close to the X950G in overall image quality, the 55" was nowhere near it. This is most likely a difference in the type of panel used. I also noticed that the 55" H9F had horrible viewing angles, some of the worst I have seen. If you are looking at buying the H9F, buy the 65" model, it is easily worth the price premium.
