I found the image crisper, blacks are blacks (normal, it's a plasma), sound is great and I don't have the same problem than on the Vizio (sound going up and down)
I will be very honest: at the same price, I would probably keep the Vizio since it's bigger, with more inputs and they are located better
But right now, it is ~$550 difference, so I will certainly keep the Samsung
I will try over the week-end to do a side by side comparison, using my hdmi switch to go back and forth between the 2 sets....
OK, so I feel the Samsung has a great PQ, with nice blacks. In comparison, the Vizio has grainy blacks in dark scenes. Otherwise, both look nice with Bluray....except with blacks !!!
The only problems is that the screen of the Samsung is VERY reflective. I could see the windows (behind me) in the screen
So I inverted the layout, and now the TV is on the same wall, in between the 2 windows....Much better
So again, a little bit smaller (but side by side, the difference is not huge), great PQ with nice blacks, and more important......$550 cheaper !!!
i thin will probably return the Vizio...I will take a couple of days more to make sure though
I would like to find the Disney calibration disc to make sure both sets are properly calibrated
