Sony has a newer TV (the EX640 series) which has no 3D but from what i've seen is a great little set. Looks like it comes in a few different sizes, but will cost more because it's a 2012 model.

HX850: 240HZ refresh with XR 960, deeper blacks, gorilla glass, better picture all around.
HX750: 240hz refresh with XR480, no gorilla glass, worse picture/worse 3d, $500+ less.
It really depends what your price range is, both TVs share the same internet connected options for content (netflix, amazon, huluplus, DLNA, sony videos etc etc.) But the HX850 will provide better picture quality, better black levels, better 3d and faster image processing due to it's higher motionflow "XR technology".
You might be better off with an HX820, since it's a 2011 it costs A LOT less but offers the same specs (and WAY better picture quality/black levels) then the hx750.

Feel like sharing your screen settings with me?
Just bought the 55" HX750 (couldn't justify the extra $500-$600 on the HX850) and am researching around at optimal settings.

Here ya go... These were given to me by a friend who calibrates these things.. The results are stunning!
Now I want feed back on what everyone thinks...(lol)... First off, go to CNN and if you can pause the picture during a scene when one of the anchors is speaking, that will help you see the results.
CNN's HD is among the best "live HD" programming. Ok here we go:
1. Go to menu and access Preferences, select scence setting and change it to "Cinema1 or 2" doesn't matter. (Don't freak out, it gets dark at first)
2. Backlight: max
2. Picture : max
3. Brightness: 50
4. Color: 60
5. Hue: 0
6. Color Temp: Cool
7. Sharpness: 82
8. Noise: off Mpeg: off Dot: off
9. Motion: Smooth
10. Cine: Auto1
1. Black Corrector: High
2. Advanced Contrast: off
3. Gamma: +1
4. Auto Light: off
5.Clear white: High
6. Live color: off or low (depending on your taste)
7. White Balance: (adjust these only) Green gain -1 Red bia's +1 Green bia's -2 Blue bia's +1
8. Detail:high Edge: high
These settings will make your picture look the best it can.. Blacks are solid, no color bleeding, perfect brightness, no edge lighting issues, colors are realistic, flesh tone is on the money, etc... Now pop in a Blue Ray (Hunger games) and be prepared to be blown away. DON'T FORGET TO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
