    Hey guys. Can you help me out? I am about to buy either a Sony 55XS955 or a 60XS955 LCD Rear Projection HDTV. I am primarily interested in the 55" one, however, I have only been able to see the 60" one in all of my local retailers.

    Here's my question. The 60" models I have seen have all had a small gloss black frame around the screen. I have seen some pictures of the 55" model showing it with a light gray frame around the screen and some with the gloss black frame. Can anyone tell me what the 55XS955 looks like for sure?

    I would think the 55 and 60 XS look the same. Are you sure it wasn't a WF model with the gray frame?

    I would think so too, but for example, Crutchfield has a bunch of pictures of both sets and they actually show the 55" with the black frame and the 60" with the light grey frame. I know the 60" comes with the black frame, so I am suspicious that they got the pictures mixed up and I really don't like the look of the set with the light grey frame.

    I got my answer today, so please ignore this post. Both sets have a frame that is dark grey to almost black. I got confused looking at some pictures on Crutchfield's web site that must have been taken under a 100,000 watt flash bulb. Somehow in the pictures they turned the entire screen frame into an almost silver finish rather than what it really looks like.
