You are right about 4 manufacturers for the LCD panels, BUT there are more parts to a LCD "TV" then just the panel it self.
Panel just shows you a picture, but the quality of picture is created with the quality parts involved in to the lcd "TV" assembly. The parts in the assembly could be Good LCD backlight, good DCDi chip, good source of the media, and other factors which i might have missed...ofourse, the LCD Panel itself will help create a good picture, but thats not the only thing creating a picture!
Vizio might have the same parts, but I am sure the QUALITY CONTROL for Samsung manufacturing process is better! Thus, rejecting TV's which do not meet the specification..Vizio might have a lower standard for the quality control which makes them cheaper!
I own westinghouse l2410nm lcd monitor, which creaates a very good comparable picture to my brothers Samsung 32" lcd tv. But I know its not the same quality, but it was cheaper than the Samsung! So, I bought a extended warranty to cover the future failure of the lower quality parts there might be...Cheap is good as long as its covered with IN-Store WARRANTY!!! Thats my motto!
