Best midrange TV from Costco?

My 50" D-series Vizio TV failed on me recently. I'm dealing with the Costco's extended "Excellence Plus" warranty now, but this is probably the best time to buy a replacement. If the warranty results in a repair or replacement instead of a refund, I'm hoping to return the purchase so I don't end up with two TVs.

I don't know much about TVs, but I was content with the Vizio. Size was fine, display wasn't amazing but it did its job. For the same price point of ~$700 I found a few options:

Vizio 50" M-Series $480: https://www.costco.ca/vizio-quantum-50- ... 08072.html
Vizio 55" M-Series $680: https://www.costco.ca/vizio-quantum-55- ... 94670.html
Samsung 55" RU8000 $750: https://www.costco.ca/samsung-un55ru800 ... 90402.html
Vizio 65" V-Series $680: https://www.costco.ca/vizio-65-in.-smar ... 16660.html

I'm not dead set on Costco but the returns and warranty are hassle free. Not dead set on $700, but it looks like the next tier up is close to almost double that and I'm probably too much of a pleb to notice the difference.

Any suggestions? Appreciate any input, thanks!
