Value Comparison

The Samsung LN32C350 is a good, cheap TV. The core performance is solid and the design is a attractive. It's scant on frills, but feels like it retains some of the quality of more expensive Vizios. The Vizio E322VL is $100 more. You get great features like the LAN port and WiFi for streaming content, but it definitely feels and looks cheaper. The Samsung also has far better contrast ratio, but is limited to a 720 resolution. It's a tough call between these two. We recommend you read both reviews before you decide.

Blacks & Whites

The Samsung LN32C350 offers a far superior black level to the Vizio E322VL, making for a contrast ratio nearly three times as wide.
