(Wow, I haven't posted at AVS Forums in YEARS!) Anyways...

Hey everybody....I was wondering if some of you could impart your wisdom in helping me make a decision between buying the Samsung UN46EH5000 (~$550) or the Vizio M551D-A2R (~$1000) Which one do you guys find to have the overall better picture quality for both blu-ray playback and gaming? Seating distance from couch to tv position is 8.5 - 9 feet. I'm leaning toward the Vizio, because of the larger picture size and SmartTV capabilities, but overall, I want a tv with the best picture quality, cost isn't an issue. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

46' to 55" is a big gap for a fair comparison between these 2. At your viewing distance, I'd say 50" is around the right size, however some may prefer going smaller, some may prefer bigger.

The M551D-A2R has great value, but with cost not an issue, I would go with higher end Sony or Samsung. They tend to do better with black levels and uniformity which I'd say is the biggest problem with LED's LCDs.
