The Samsung CU8000 is a lower midrange-priced TV that performs decently in sports and is satisfactory in bright rooms. However, it isn't suited for dark-room viewing. On the other hand, the Vizio MQ6 '23 is priced more budget-friendly and offers better performance for movies and varied content, including news and animation. It also has superior dark-room performance but may not handle reflections as well as the Samsung. If price is a concern and you prioritize movie watching and a variety of content, the Vizio could serve you well. If you're willing to spend more and need a TV that handles well in slightly brighter rooms, consider the Samsung. Give Feedback

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.
