The 2014 Vizio haven't been out that long, so, it's going to be hard to judge Reliability at this point. This chart is more based on what happen last year, not so much this year. My point to responding to this thread is. The Vizio is making a really good tv this year, and it's a good chance that no one well be able to do much better then them, without really raising the price. So, before you drop a bunch a money on the Samsung, check out the 2014 Vizio, look at the reviews, and see what informed shoppers are saying about them.
I would recommend an extended warranty for any brand tv, since for some reason they only give 1 year to them.
