Nice TV - remote should have never left the factory

Summary: Pro: Great TV, very sharp. The menus are almost idiot proof - thought there are a lot of them. 3D looks great, and ads lots of depth. Nice to have wireless built in. Apps are nice but not the reason to buy the TV Con: Remote receiver sucks, its so tiny you have to be pointing directly at the bottom...
Summary: I love my Vizio M551d-A2R 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Smart LED HDTV. I got it from Amazon.com on 05/13/2014 . And the best of all , it's the price, it's to much TV for less price on Amazon warehouse. I am really well please with these buy from Amazon.com . It's great.
Summary: My tv story... 3 years ago, I bought a samsung PN58C7000. It was a $2000 3D plasma tv. It was AMAZING. Then my kid threw something at it and broke it a year later. I've been reluctant to buy a new tv for 2 reasons; 1) I didn't want something that wouldn't look as good as that tv and 2) I didn't want...
Summary: For me everything is good on this TV, the only problem, which is a big problem is the remote. I do have a LG 42" LCD TV since 2009 and I never face any problem with remote. But I purchased this on January 7th, received 5 days later and it was ok.
Summary: Love this TV. The picture is awesome. The built in apps seem not so user friendly. For example, I can log into Amazon Prime Instant Video but it does not have access to view my watch list. I can only search for movies and then play them.
Summary: this was my first major purchase after college, nice 55 inch. I had an older vizio smart tv and i liked how everything was integrated with the netflix and internet so seamlessly. they have exceeded my expectations with this model. super thin. small outside rim bezel. just looks fantastic.
Summary: My income tax return came back recently and provided a rather sizeable chunk of change. Having considered option from a vacation to audiophile quality headphones (and necessary accessories such as an amp or DAC), my fiance and I settled on upgrading our TV so we could have a new one for the living...
Summary: Had the VIZIO M551d-A2R 55-Inch TV for a few days. Easy set-up and everything including 3-D works great! Stunning picture quality. No issues with remote any more. Seem to have disappeared with the latest sets, which pair the remote with TV via wifi - which was part of initial set-up that the TV...
B.E.A.utiful picture, BUT some issues. Best you buy this one from a local store, you just might have to replace it.

Summary: Bought this from Costco a week ago. The FIRST ONE (yes, I had to return it) received absolutely NO IR signal. the remote, even with new Rayovac batteries wouldn't work. Even my TV remote app for my Galaxy S4 couldn't turn it on.
