    Does anyone know the diffrenece between the VS and VX series of Hitachi's LCD RP sets? Has anyone compared these to the Sony XBR950 LCD RP? I have been eyeing the sony for a bit but the wife likes the black case of the Hitachi.

    John, have you been to Hitachi's website?
    It must list the features of each.

    I would take the VX or VS over any sony on the market. I am not impressed w/ any sony LCD projection tv's right now...including the overpriced XBR. The Hitachis look better, have better color and sharper pictures. The only upside of the Sony's is non-reflective glass...which the VX takes care of.

    Andrew,
    Thanks for the input. What is the AV net all about?
