I have a choice between these two tvs thanks to membership rewards with my credit card. The vizio has tinny sound but has internet apps! I have netflix and hulu plus so I could use them on it. Though my computer is right across the room so I already have them on there. I know 1080p isn't important at those sizes. Thoughts people?

My experience is TV net apps are that they are slow and clunky and have no REAL purpose unless you don't have a Wii, PS3, 360, PC, or tablet that runs Netflix or Hulu Plus.

Well, the Vizio is true 1080 resolution, where as the Samsung is not.

It's also a few inches bigger, and, if net apps are of interest to you, then you can add those to check list.

I've owned both a Samsung and a Vizio, and I can't complain about either one.

My BEST advice? Spend your reward points on something else, or save them, and purchase a slightly bigger display.

Unless you are getting them free or using It for your kids or kitchen I wouldn't get one that small. Just my 2 cents. I picked my 720 50 inch for 500 last year. It would be better just to spend a little more and get a bigger tv if you can, thanks to 3D and LED you can find flats cheap now.

if you're going for something that small, I'd definitely go for a high-end PC monitor. that's just me though.

it needs to have an HDMI port obviously. something with deep blacks, accurate colors, fast response time, 1920x1200, etc. can't go wrong.

It's for my kitchen and I'm getting them for free (technically)


Alright thanks everyone! I'll keep what you all said in mind.
