Summary: TV arrived in brown box w/ contents shifting around. Coaxial cable connection was broken-off (found piece in bottom of box). Everthing else was in good shape. Hooked TV to TWC HD box via HDMI --- picture looks great! I guess I'll keep it since I'd probably never use the coax connection anyway.
Summary: I had the TV for about 3 weeks before returning. Tried every possible setting to find my happy place for picture quality.I really tried to keep it. Before I go further I can not deny that the 3d on this set is awesome. Better 3d than the Samsung that replaced it has.
Summary: Bought a Vizio M551d-A2R (Refurb) last week and it came in a brown box. The remote was dead on arrival. Talked to vizio customer service to get the replacement remote, which will arrive in 10 business days time. Made a trip to the BestBuy and got a universal remote.
