    I just got my new 36XBR450 yesterday. I replaced it over a malfunctioning 36XBR400. I know about the new Cinemotion (3/2 pulldown) functionality on the XBR450. Does anybody know what other enhancements the 450 has over the 400?

    I think that was it. I also think that there have been less complaints about geometry and general craftsmanship with the 450s. Is the remote new too?

    I thought I read that the line doubler was tweaked (improved.)

    I think (not 100% sure) that they've also fixed the detection of progressive signals for the auto-squeeze. I have an 36xbr400 and it doesn't detect the progressive signal and squeeze automatically...
    My coworker bought a 32xbr450 and a prog. dvd player...and his works.
    cheers,

    After four days of having it, I agree that it has better geometry than my previous 400, and better convergence.
    Also, the new remote is just beautiful. A sleek silver remote, a lot better from the 400's black one.
    I'm also planning to get that new progressive Sony 700P.
