I have a 1272 and have not seen the 9PG. What I can tell you about the Sony is it puts out an awesome picture, there are alot of them out there and the tubes seem to last a long time. You could not go wrong with a Sony.
I found two of the biggest parts to making a good picture is the source material and a doubler. A better PJ will help.
