Is there any difference between these two TV's? I see that some stores like best buy carry the 36HF71 and not the 36HFX71. And it seems odd that Toshiba would produce two TV's that are nearly identical. Is one just this years model? Or are there real differences to these.
Thanks in advance for all of your help.

Haven't read the specs, Mike--but the HFX might have a better comb filter and some other niceties.

The HFX has a few difference over the HF:
1. Upgraded Audio system. (Doesn't really matter if you have an A/V setup)
2. It has some nice video correction circuitry. I could see a minor difference at my A/V store.
The main difference is the "Cinema Series" designation. Both my dealer and Toshiba told me that all "Cinema Series" units are hand assemble in the US. The others are production lined in Asia. The build quality is supposed to be much better.
That's all the differences I know of.
