I'm thinking of a new TV in the 40 inch range and have decided to give these two a go - the 9704 is still available from some retailers. There are few reviews online but from what I've read the earlier model peformed well except for a little reduction in contrast in dark scenes. Apart from features does the 9705 have much more to offer in terms of performance (notably contrast). Some of the other LED dimming sets look attractive but info on them seems few and far between and I'm wondering whether it's really worth the extra cost. I've also considered the new Sharp and Sony models which offer similar performance for less dosh - I suppose it's a matter of taste really.
