What's the difference between the Sony SONY KD55X8505c and KD55X8508CB?

Whant to pick up this set but my local store has this listed as the KD55X8508CB.
Is there a difference? Both have a black finish.

According to Sony's website, the X8505 is 800Hz while the X8508 is 1000Hz. Is this right? Seems odd that they're the same price.

The stand is also in a different color, blackened chrome for the 8505 and normal chrome for the 8508. Have to say I prefer blackened chrome, but if the 8508 is 1000Hz...
