If you are looking for a TV with better overall picture quality and a slightly better gaming experience, the Samsung CU7000 could be a good choice, even though it's more expensive. However, if price is a significant concern and you'd like to save money, the Vizio V-Series is less expensive and still offers a satisfactory viewing experience for various content. Both TVs may struggle with direct sunlight, so neither is ideal for very bright rooms. Neither model stands out for watching sports or gaming at high refresh rates due to their 60Hz panels. The choice between the two comes down to whether you prioritize picture quality and gaming enhancements enough to justify the Samsung's higher cost, or if you prefer to stay within a tighter budget with the Vizio, accepting minor compromises in performance.

CNET

Geoffrey Morrison | June 2021
"Vizio's cheapest 4K HDR TV packs in a lot for a low price. The voice control via the remote works well, about as well as Roku's version on devices that have it. So if you know your way around a TV menu, or want to be able to dial in the picture even on an inexpensive TV, the Vizio is the better choice"

About Samsung

Samsung, a South Korean electronics manufacturer, holds the title of being the largest global TV vendor in terms of units sold. They offer a diverse lineup of TV products that cater to various budget ranges. A notable achievement in recent years is the development of Quantum Dots, a technology that enhances color reproduction, resulting in richer and more vibrant hues. Samsung TVs are well-regarded for their high manufacturing quality and user-friendly software, making them an excellent choice for consumers seeking an intuitive viewing experience.

About Vizio

Vizio is an American company. While they initially gained recognition for offering budget-friendly TVs, they have successfully expanded their product lineup to include high-end options as well. They manufacture TVs primarily in Mexico, China, and Vietnam. Similar to many Korean TV brands, Vizio developed its own smart TV software called SmartCast. In the past, SmartCast was not the best smart TV software, but it has evolved so that it is now good for using your TV and connecting to streaming services.
