Default Super duper bargain on Phillips 47" 1080p! What should I do?!

Basically I just got a Vizio VO47LF (47" 1080p) last week from Sams Club. I like it so far quite a bit. After taxes it came to like $1315 or so

Phillips online outlet store though now is selling their refurbished 47PFL7422D/37B model tv (47" 1080p) which has slightly better specs it seems, for $830 after shipping and taces. That's like a $500 difference.

So curious what others feel I should do? Also wanted to make you all aware of this awesome deal (it goes for all their refurb outlet LCDs, you hafta input a friends n family coupon I found on Engadget or Gizmodo today on their main headlines)

Is the Phillips a good model/brand compared to Vizio?Should I return the vizio and take a chance of the refurb Phillips (90 day warrenty included) for $500 in savings? Please guide me as thats a lotta scratch yo!

Lol well not really looking for that kinda advice. What're people's impressions of Phillips or this TV? Worth the effort and safe to buy refurb directly from them? I know Sams would take my Vizio back no problem

I might check for reviews on line... I've only seen the TV's in store, philips don't give the impression of being very impressive sets... Then again they also don't look absolutly horrid either.

I am sure you would be happy with the philips as well, and as far as refurbished, it could be just store recalls. Ie bestbuy buys alot of product it doesn't sell, it gets sent back to philips and they now have to do something with it. I can't see them having regular stock of broken/repaired 47" tv's when they sell little to begin with

Save the $500 and take a gamble

Yea I heard both Phillips and Vizio get their panels from LG, so it wouldn't be a huge quality difference

Here's the deal though if anyone wants to take advantage!
