Nonsense. There are thousands of reviews online for both TV sets and they are very evenly matched. Both Vizio and Samsung tend to have the same issues in long term use and most likely same fail rates. Costco, with their two year warranty, would not carry Vizio if it had a larger fail rate then the other TVs they sell. For these two sets it comes down to personal preference on design and picture quality.Paigne wrote: ↑ Main difference really is Samsung brand. Samsung is the top selling brand and generally is pretty well reviewed for support. Vizio on the other side have gone downhill the last few years (honestly since their fail/attempt to sell a couple years ago). You can google or check reddit to see various problems (tho Samsung has issues too, Vizio ones aren’t just wear and tear) that they encounter with their TVs lately. Most of them have to do with either Black Friday stock or firmware updates causing interface to really slow down. There is also the somewhat famous white line issue with Vizio p series. Consumer report also took 7 models of Vizio tv off their recommended list a few months back due to fail rate above 20% within 5 years (Just take it as a reference point, I doubt the actual fail rate is 20% and odds are a lot of people with no issues just hung up on them).
If you are using it as a monitor, Samsung has slightly better respond time but Vizio seems to have better viewing angle and maybe supports 1440p if that matters to you.
Other minor difference like Samsung has 3X hdimi 2 ports vs Vizio 2. Better upscale chip found in the Samsung etc. Basically you can read up on the differences to see if any of them are a game changer for you. If not you could go with the Vizio.

Reviews are similar but brands aren’t. If you arent picky about brand, like I said Vizio is fine. Fact is Vizio support is inferior to Samsung as proven by pretty much every tv discussion forum or Reddit. You can see how Vizio handle their white line issues on the p series to how they ignore the fact their firmware update resulted in their respond time being worst. There is clear evidence that their support is inferior to that of Samsung.zebracobra007 wrote: ↑ Nonsense. There are thousands of reviews online for both TV sets and they are very evenly matched.

Not questioning your research, but similar reviews don't mean similar quality at all. People paying more, or even paying the same buying premium brands would expect more out of them. Therefore, they tend to give more strict reviews. It's just basic human psychology.

Did some reading and found it is reviewed to be a pretty equal match for the NU7100 (better in some ways, worse in others... neither blowing the other away at anything... virtually identical rating post-calibration) :

Can anyone chyme in as to why the NU7100 is worth $50 than the V405-G9? Debating grabbing one as well to do a side-by-side, but don't quite have the room to do so...
