4 Reasons For
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) Certified
The Sony KDL-32R503 is a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified TV, however the Samsung HG32ED450 is not Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified.

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a system that allows various computer technology products - from TVs to phones to games consoles - to all share data and media with each other over a home network, with a minimum of compatibility issues.

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The Sony KDL-32R503 has an ethernet port, whereas the Samsung HG32ED450 does not have an ethernet port.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

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.
