Help me decide between 27" Apple Cinema Display or 32" Samsu

Hi first post here and I need some solid advice.
I am running a Apple MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.0 15" Early 2011
I am trying to decide between a Apple Cinema Display LED (27-Inch)
And a 32" LED 5000 Series (2012) UN32EH5000
I will be using it mainly for Diablo 3 gaming, and a little but of web browsing, movies, and organizing my Itunes, ect.
My buddy can get me a great deal on the Samsung but I dont know if the pros outweigh the cons.
I love the Mac for the 3 usb ports, as I have a 3 TB external HD that I want to be always plugged in.
Plus the charger built right into the monitor via mag-safe is very convenient.
Also leaving my Diablo 3 gaming mouse plugged in to the Cinema display is a bonus.
But with new LED tv's coming so far down in price and the color ratio you get is quite impressive.
That and the fact its a couple extra inches, and the screen resolution is not at all bad compared to the cinema display.
I need help weighing the pros and cons.
Also any info on using HDTV's in todays age would be helpful as technology changes every 3 months now.
Will having the cinema display improve FPS and less screen lag and ghosting? Or will the difference between the two hardly be noticeable.
Can I adjust settings on the TV to suit my mac?
Am I able to multi screen with this setup?
Will the HDMI to mini display port adapter reduce quality? Take up more of my usb drives?
Any and all information given will be greatly appreciated as Im looking to pick one up in the next day or two.
