What advantage does the 9 have over the 6 and 7 series?

In the 7s have only just turned up, I wouldn't be expecting the 9s until next year some time.

For some reason i got the impression that the 7 8 and 9 series were all launching at basically the same time, so around nowish.

The 9 series contains the LED backlight instead of a bulb and therefore has much better contrast ratios and almost perfect black levels. Quoted contrast ration of 2million to 1 i think compared to the 7 series' 70,000:1. It also contains all the new features of the of the 7 and 8 series as you would expect.

Looks the be their real premium model so should be pretty expensive when it is launched.

Yes costly TV.  First batch is only 46 and 55's and SUPER LOW number are coming in.  Myself, im not even interested in the S7 or S8's... Its all about the 9's.   Look out plasma's... this could be the nail in their coffin for many.  `I can help someone own one of these TVs if they PM'd me...
