Quality parts always always always had quality warranties.

If you buy a cheap Vizio TV from Walmart you will get a 1 year warranty. If you buy a Samsung TV from Best Buy you will get a better extended warranty.
Wut? o_O

I bought a Samsung TV at Best Buy before, and it comes with the exact same warranty as a Vizio..........unless you pay extra and buy an extended warranty from Best Buy. It's the same exact thing buying a TV from really any place including Walmart, Target, etc. (outside of Costco who give an extra year warranty).

Yep. 1 year is the norm now it looks like. Even the high dollar ones i looked at.

The EU has a 2 year minimum warranty for electrical goods, this extends to components of said goods (GPU's, CPU's etc), which might be part of the reason AMD don't sell direct, they direct you to a retailer over on this side of the pond.

I think you have that backwards. Vizio's are better than the overpriced junk Samsung puts out. Although in reality, they have identical warranties.
