    Hi,
    i was planning to buy a 36xbr400, but now the 450 has come out and i am left wondering weather i should spend even more money on the 450. I don't have a lot of money to spend, but i have been saving up to buy this television. I guess my real question is, Is the 450 worth the extra money and what features does it have that the 400 doesn't. Thanks a lot and love the forum.

    The XBR450 has CineMotion Reverse 3-2 Pull Down Technology, whereas the XBR400 does not.
    For more on 3-2 pull down, check out the following links:

    There are a few other, less significant differences:

    I am getting the 36XBR450 this Friday, and I personally think it's worth getting it over the XBR400. The picture quality I saw is good enough for me to hold off buying a progressive scan DVD player for at least another year or so.

    i was also thinking about this when i was shopping around.
    and the price difference between the xbr400 vs. xbr450 was only $100 bucks
    so i went with the newer model. [​IMG]
