The Bottom Line The Samsung E550 series LCD is a decent performer with excellent shadow detail and good colors but image softness hampers a hearty recommendation. The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling. Beyond its "dumb" feature set and lack of inputs, the Samsung UNF5000 LED LCD offers plenty of TV for the money. The Vizio E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling. Although its picture quality falls short of the competition, the Samsung UNF6300's high-end features and design for a midrange price will win plenty of converts.
