"Vizio vs. Samsung, the winner is..."2.0 starson by rspokane11
Pros: Multiple HDMI hook-ups, excellent picture quality, easy to manipulate remote, $1,200 less than the comprable Samsung.
Cons: It is a few inches thicker than the Samsung, but since I am not mounting it on the wall, it was a non issue. Silver sound bar on bottom takes a little getting used to, but it is definately not a deal breaker.
Summary: Most features and benefits for the money. I watch a lot of sports and contemplated this set, the Samsung 8000 series, and even a Panasonic Plasma. When Costco knocked an additional $300 off, I could not justify the $1,200 price difference with the Samsung. Picture is phenominal, remote is easy to manipulate, and with my surround sound system, Blue Ray DVD's are awesome. I read dozens of customer and expert reviews and comparisons to the Samsung and other than a few aesthetics, the reviews were pretty similar. Also, Costco gives an additional two year warranty!Should be 4 of 5 stars, not 2...
