Budget Induction range : Samsung or GE?

Hi,
We are looking into getting a budget induction range. The two that have good reviews and are closer in price are Samsumg for ~$1770 (http://theinductionsite.com/buy-induc...) and GE for ~$2079 (http://theinductionsite.com/buy-induc...).
GE has 5 burners (but probably only 4 are useful) and main complaint with Samsung's is the layout of 4 burners making 1 useless. We don't cook too much food at once, so that's not that big of a concern.

From what I can tell, GE has been making induction cooktops [and appliances in general] for much longer than Samsung [both induction ranges are ~1 year old], so I'm wondering if it is worth spending $300 extra to go with the GE range? Since induction ranges are new, we'll be getting 5-yr extended warranty, but hopefully they'll last much longer.

Thanks!
