Subject RE: Facets vs TermV's

I found a thread ones (sorry; cant remember where) which stated that the issue is performance;
the terms component is faster than the autocomplete.
I'm no expert but I guess its a question of when the auto complete index gets build. Where
as the terms component likely builds it at storage time, the facet component builds it at
retrieval time.
Me thinks...

Subject: Facets vs TermV's

  I spent a lot of time on the Wiki and am working with facets and tv's,
but I'm still confused about something.

Basically, what is the difference between issuing a facet field query
that returns facets with counts,
and a query with term vectors that also returns document frequency
counts for terms in a field?

They seem almost similar, but I'm missing something I think. i.e. when
is best to use one over the other?
I know this is Solr 101, but just want to understand it fully.

Thanks for any quick tips again.
