There is no such set.
If there ever is one, it would probably be released around March of 2013.

I own a XBR5 and XBR8, the XBR HX929/ HX850 is definitely a improvement when compared to the XBR4. Keep in mind that the XBR HX929 is a Local Dimming LED and the HX850 is a Edge Lit (with Local Dimming) LED.
Two of AVS finest, ChadB and DNice,chose the XBR HX929 over the Sharp Elite Pro, here is ChadB's review.
The Samsung and LG OLEd's will be in the store before the end of the year, also expect the succesor of the Sharp Elite Pro (best LCd on the market). The XBR HX955, or whatever the name will be, will hit the market this time next year, maybe sooner. So lots of exciting stuff is going on, if possible wait a year.

All i can say is that i went from the CCFL 40XBR5 to the Local Dimming LED 46XBR8 and was very happy with impovement eventhough XBR8 has off-axis PQ degredation and blooming - worse than the XBR HX929, also XBR HX929 has better blacks - . I see no need to upgrade yet, wait for OLED/ or KUROesk Plasma.

It got a excellent cnet review which is surprising for a Edge Lit.
early cadidate for best LCd of 2012
If i wanted a 2012 Edge Lit this would be the most important candidate, for shure. Important is wether or not you like it. Make shure you can return it in case you do not like it.

I can't wait a year, I need something within the next 30-60 days.

the XBR HX929 is sony's 2011 and 2012 top of the line (full array Local Dimming LED LCd), in fact at the VA Shootout Sony was not present because they wanted that the XBR HX929 participated (again!). I am pretty shure that there will be no new Sony top of the line this year ( the (XBR) HX955 is supposed to be the next Sony top of the line full array Local Dimming LED).Quote:

I am attaching a picture from an official Sony Catalog (Turkish). It says "coming" for HX950. In the catalog it says "new intelligent peak led". So I guess the backlit system will be improved. Anyone else knows any news???
I have just talked to a local dealer which is a major one in Turkey and the rep. told me that they expect the HX950/953 in August.

Sony Center in the UK says the HX953 should be released in September.

Hi everyone, was chatting to a Sony Rep today and was told that the HX953 is due to be released towards the end of this year and will be the replacement for the HX923.
I asked the Sony Rep whether or not this is official as there is no info on the web and he said that it is.
This 46in model is Sony’s new flagship 46in TV (until the HX953 direct LED sets appear around September).

thanks. The HX950 is a Edge Lit Local Dimming. My posts where about the successor of the full array Local Dimming XBR HX929. The HX955 which i was talking about is supposed to be the successor of the HX929. The threadstarted probably meant the Edge Lit HX950.

This is a german Forum, in a different country name would be different. We probably see this model next year and it might be 4K.
