Don't buy either

I don't trust the brand of that first one and that Samsung is WAY too small. Save your money until you have enough to buy a good size, name brand TV.

In that case...

In reply to: why

Go with the Samsung but if you can get $200 or so more you should get the 32" model:

The other one is one of those non-name brand TV companies that are more likely to have dead pixels and probably terrible image quality. I can tell you from playing a 360 on that Samsung at the store that the picture looks great: accurate colors, deep blacks, bright whites, I loved it. I was gonna buy the 32" Samsung myself but I'm waiting for prices to drop so I can buy at least a 37" since I sit about 5 or 6 feet away. While I'm on the subject of companies not to buy from you also should avoid: Vizio, Westinghouse, Viewsonic, Polaroid, and generally any other company that isn't instantly recognizable and/or not known for making TV's.

dead pixels. aoc customer service turns out to be very responsive. if you look into the background of who makes aoc tvs it turns out to be the second largest lcd screen manufacturer in the world.
