    I was just wondering what changes from the HS10 models. Also, has the price changed?
    Thanks.

    They have two HD-ready component inputs (vs. one on the HS10), no RGB-HV inputs (vs. one on the HS10), automatic 16:9 mode detection (I think), and user-configurable DRC modes (interlaced, progressive, and CineMotion inverse 3:2 pulldown). Yes, the price has changed...they're cheaper than the HS10s were...to the tune of a $400 lower list price (for the 53" model, anyway).
    Overall, the HS20s and HS30s appear to be very similar to the HS10s. However, the price difference alone makes them a great deal. The additional HD input and the inclusion of reverse 3:2 pulldown is just icing on the cake.
