That's a hard call. The Samsung is an HDTV, so how well the standard-def (480 line) output of the Wii will look depends on how well it scales 480 images. The Sony is a tube TV and seems to be able to handle 480p, so the 480i vs. 480p issue is a non-issue here. That said, a CRT will probably look better than an LCD/plasma for 480-line images. What sucks is the Sony has the big tube size.
