Thus the inference to best for the lowest price to fit OPs budget. Then the OP comes back and states it directly in #8. This forum is for opinions and not for PERSONAL ATTACKS on opinions.

FYI...Matching DVD player means TV remote has all usable buttons of DVD player without need to program. DVD remote has fully functional power, source and volume control for the matching TV.

Had you spoken to someone at BB or even a local specialty retailer you may have been able to get closer to your online price.
I actually spoke to the managers of Best Buy and HHgregg. Neither would price match a non-local competitor or internet retailer.

You may want to check the wording on both warranties. One may state it starts on day one of purchase (in reality it doesn't for repair, only for surge) and one may state it starts at the end of the manufacturers warranty. FYI: Samsung extends the warranty from 12 months to 15 months if you register it online. Also Samsung sells their extended warranty for an additional three years for about $300.

Best Buy includes the Manufacturers warranty. So in reality its a 3 year extended.

Sears starts at the end of the Manufacturers warranty. So it is also 3 year extended.

My original post concern was the 50" LED picture would not be as good as the 46" LED picture.
I'd buy this one. I wouldn't worry about picture quality. We've owned a Samsung 46" for 4 years. No problems, no complaints.

I'm really leaning towards the 50" without the apps. For what I'm reading here, there won't be a difference in picture quality in the 50" from the 46" Samsung. I could probably add a blue ray player for the extra money which will also give me the netflix app.

Just remember that this TV has only two HDMI ports. But if you go the the BDE6500 from Cowboom it is wifi and has two additional HDMI "input" ports.

Yes that helps posters with straight forward answers to the original posts. This goes on in all forums but still a big help in decision making. Thanks.

I didn't look much at the choices you offered, but if the TVs are in the same series, and at first glance differ only in size, they should have the same picture quality.

Someone mentioned that one only has 2 HDMI inputs and that may not be enough. In your case, a Bluray player and a satellite receiver/cable box uses up two HDMI. Maybe you have a PC, laptop, media player, or who knows what else that you may want to use eventually. Just a thought.

Someone else mentioned Wifi. I have it on one TV, and not on the other, which tells me I should have gotten it on both. As that poster said it allows for simple firmware upgrades, but it's also a link to the internet, which may lead to all manner of apps down the road. Bluray players often do this too, but you have to see how limited either device may be.

Why don't you go to Samsung.com and do a compare. The 46" is a better TV in comparison to the 50". It has better specs and has 3 HDMI ports & WIFI.

OLED TVs are LED by definition and they do exist because I have one.

Which one do you have?

I agree with you that an OLED TV is an LED TV. However they are not sold as "LED" TVs, and they are very rare in a usable size.

Samsung expects to price their upcoming 55 inch OLED TV at $9,000.
