Does anyone have anything good to say about Viking (rangetops and ovens)?

I've been reading and reading all the threads on ovens and rangetops hoping to find more supporters of Viking. It seems like most of the people that post have had serious problems! I am currently selecting all new appliances for a newly built kitchen. I am mainly going with GE monogram for most things including a built-in sxs fridge, advantium 120 and convection wall oven.( I just saw they had a price increase and am going to end up paying 1000 more for all items because I waited a month) However, I am leaning heavily towards the VIking 6 burner open burner gas rangetop and 2nd under the counter Viking convection oven. First I thought I would go with Thermador of my second under the counter oven, but am drawn towards viking.( Both the Thermador and Viking had 4.7 cu ft capacity as opposed to the GE which was as 4.4. I want one oven to be big enough for a Turkey. ) Maybe it is because we have two showrooms in my area and I can't believe that a company that has had so many complaints would still be in business (thriving actually) if it hasn't done something right. Does anyone have anything good to say about the open burner rangetop and convection oven from Viking or should I go with the GE mono rangetop and thermador oven. I have ruled out Wolf, Dacor and Miele because of Price. The Viking $ are decent here and match the GEMONO. Also I know the difference between the open and sealed. I think the open may have better flame, anyone think there is a real difference?
