How is everyone doing? I'm in the process of getting a new T.V. for my bedroom but it seems that I'm being drawn towards the new 37" Vizio XVT373SV but I'm not well informed on Vizio products. Can someone help me out? Also can someone tell me the difference between the Sony KDL-46XBR8 and the new Sony XBR-46HX929. I'd like to replace my living room T.V. (46XBR4) with one of them.

How is everyone doing?.....lets see where do I start, two months behind on three major credit card payments, foreclosure notice from bank received 1 week ago, health insurance is cancelled due to non payment, tornado struck three weeks ago and practically destroyed the automobile and garage, comprehensive insurance was cancelled two days before tornado struck, wife suing for divorce and full custody of our 6 kids, attempted suicide with electric razor but power company flipped the switch just before the attempt....... I think that about sums it up. How bout' you?

PS The 929 is Sony's latest and greatest and is 3D compliant, greatest set Sony has produced since the XBR8...talk to this guy http://www.highdefforum.com/members/imrizzo.html he will clue ya' in.....Chow

I'm new here so "HI"! I have the vizio you are looking at and love it. With my kids it is heavily watched. I did just recently start having an issue with it though. After a while of being shut off when first turned back on it seems to freeze a bit until warmed up and i have not been on this forum long enough to ask anyone about it...lol. I would not shy away from because of that issue.....as i said i bet my tv is on 20 hrs a day and that is no exaggeration. Just my 2 cents...good luck!

Sony's XBR8's no longer in production and I believe all available stock has dried up. The new XBR HX929 is an excellent set with varying street prices from 2150 to 2799. I would refrain from buying right now as Sony has acknowledged a problem with the LED panel and they are updating so buy only panels with a build date of 6/2011 for the corrected version.
