Samsung UN50M5300 VIZIO E43D2
8 Reasons For
Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UN50M5300 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the VIZIO E43D2 (43").

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

57.11mm Thinner
The Samsung UN50M5300 has a thickness of 29mm, however the VIZIO E43D2 is an 86.11mm thick TV (57.11mm thicker).

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Read more Read less | Edit
Screen Mirroring
The Samsung UN50M5300 supports screen mirroring, however the VIZIO E43D2 does not support this feature.

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wi-Fi Direct
The Samsung UN50M5300 supports Wi-Fi Direct, however the VIZIO E43D2 does not.

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Better Brand

2 Reasons For
34% Faster High Frequency Rate
The VIZIO E43D2 is a 120Hz refresh rate TV. That's 60Hz faster than the Samsung UN50M5300 (60Hz).

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Read more Read less | Edit
Local Dimming
The VIZIO E43D2 features local dimming, however the Samsung UN50M5300 does not feature this benefit.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.
