FilledSmallSquare The sample points are equally spaced.

FilledSmallSquare In Plot, an adaptive procedure is used to choose more sample points.

FilledSmallSquare With a single variable, PlotPoints -> n specifies the total number of sample points to use.

FilledSmallSquare With two variables, PlotPoints -> n specifies that n points should be used in both and directions.

FilledSmallSquare PlotPoints -> , specifies different numbers of sample points for the and directions.
