Understand, all the consumer models are produced in a similar fashion, with similar parts sources in China (etc.). In this regard, you cannot guarantee anything per se. Vizio would be my last choice only by personal experience of the brands on your list. YMMV.
A better way to hedge against the unknown is to purchase an HDTV with an American Express card that doubles the manufacturer warranty period of coverage for no extra cost. Otherwise, you can save a little by going with Square Trade, although the deductibles may not be worth it.
Some folks opt to buy from Costco and use the concierge two plus two program (essentially, a Costco branded Citibank cc) to get an extra two years beyond the extra concierge warranty. So it would be a total of four years of coverage.
I have very bad experience with samsung tv. Not just me, two of my other friends also have same experience but they were lucky because they bought extended warranty.
Now I have to buy another TV because repair cost are high and again there will no guarantee how long samsung will work.
So I am asking which TV brand is most reliable? I am looking for LED/LCD smart TV with screen size between 50 to 55 inch.
Below brands are on my list.
I appreciate any suggestions.
