Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019) vs Vizio SB3851-D0 5.1 Channel Soundbar (2016)

Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019)

Decent
TechHive: 8.0/10
Analysis:

The Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019) hasn't managed to perform well enough to earn a place in any Soundbar roundups conducted by sources that do their own, high-quality, hands-on testing. That alone makes it a hard product to recommend.

Taking a look at the Vizio SB3851-D0 Soundbar (2016), it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - TechGearLab and Techradar - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.

We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Soundbars, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.

We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019) got its highest, 8, rating from TechHive, while the Vizio SB3851-D0 Soundbar (2016) earned its best, 7.3, score from TechGearLab.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019), with its 8.0 average, performed considerably better than most Soundbars - the mean score for the product category being 7.6 out of 10 - while the Vizio SB3851-D0 Soundbar (2016) managed an average of 7.2.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Vizio SB36514-G6 5.1.4 Channel Premium Soundbar (2019) vs. Vizio SB3851-D0 Soundbar (2016) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
