My Costco Haier 55in T.V crapped out after 22 months. It was still under the Costco Warranty(I also had the 3 year extra warranty) and Costco has just decided to refund me the TV cost. I am looking at a new T.V(I only want to buy from Costco) and have narrowed it down to 3 T.Vs.

They are all 55inches, 4K smart tvs.
My GF is leaning towards the Viso because on the box it said it can hook up to a Google Home and she could then turn on the TV by just saying turn on lol. I am leaning towards the Hisense because I like the price and though I think the picture quality was a bit better on the other 2 TVs I don't think it was worth $200-250 price difference though I am a bit hesitant with another Chinese brand TV. I also don't really care at all about the smart tv feature as none of them support Kodi so I will need a box anyways. If I was to choose between Lg or Viso I probably go for LG as it more recognized brand and is $50 cheaper than viso in store price.
I asked the costco guy and he said that Hisense is middle of the road of the Chinese brands, where Haier is absolute crap and Viso is the best. He did say he tries to steer people away from any of them and recommends go with Samsung or LG(though he likes LG more).
So I am not really sure what to go for, I will in the end buy the 3 year warranty what will be $30-$60 for peace of mind so I know I will get 5 years out of a TV but I don't want to have to come back 22 months later and exchange it for another TV. I want a TV that can at least last the 5+ years.
I can't really find any reviews on the viso one, I found on bestbuy.com reviews for the LG which seems like most people like it except some wifi dropping issue and hisense only reviews from the costco page.
