Currently a ~$100 difference between the 2. I'm also kicking around the idea of waiting for the Samsung 8500 to go a bit lower (currently 700 to 800 more than the other 2). I have read here that the 8000 has some flashlighting issues. I havent heard much about the Vizio besides it possibly just being a little inferior pq to Samsungs. The internet apps arent a huge deal for me either way because I can always get a blu-ray player or htpc with that capability. Just want to get the most for my money.

Thanks for any help!

I would avoid edge-lit sets even though the Samsung 8000 has received good reviews. I think edge-lighting is a compromise and a money maker for the companies.


The 8500 will have a better PQ then the 8000 or the Vizio, but only you can determine if it's worth the extra dollars.


The Vizio 551 (552) has received very good reviews and most people seem to be very happy with what they paid for. They are fully backlit with local dimming which is an improvement on edge-lighting.
