I guess I don't know why you're giving up a TV with a great picture for one with more "goodies" on it, some of which don't even work. I guess I'm the only one who wants to help since you apparently can't make a decision on your own:
One thought on the VIZIO:
"A Vizio in your living room might not have impressed your snobby videophile friends in the past, but the company known for budget LCDs is doing its best to change that. The XVT3SV series, Vizio's third attempt at using a full array of local dimming LEDs to compete with the other brands' flagship LCDs, is in our book its most successful. The XVT3 stands among the best LCDs we've tested in the crucial areas of black level and color, and its matte screen--rare among high-end LEDs today--means superior bright-room performance compared with just about anything available."
"Was worth the wait! Nice deep blacks and bright whites for a super clear picture. Rich colors, but most impressed by the life like motion. 240hz makes a difference. I really wanted true LED back lit because the edge lit versions from the other brands at the same price appeared a little washed out. To get the same quality on a more well known brand like Sony or Samsung you'll need to spend about $600 more. Internet apps are cool, but not sure how much I'll use them since my Panasonic blu-ray has this too and seems to handle video more smoothly from the web. All in all a great deal for high end non-3D LED/LCD TV."
I guess it all depends on what your priorities are. We can't walk into the store with you and hold your hand while you make a decision. Good luck.
