Guest: Are you kidding about not worth the extra money??? Maybe from the hx7v to the hx9v that's could be a true statement, but considering the hx5v vs. the hx7v, then there is no way you can not prefer the hx7v. I highly recommend you paying the extra money for it. Thanks.

I am thinking about getting the HX5V because it is much less expensive, and the HX7V is not worth the extra money.
