Looks great. The apps work very well

James, Amazon

  • Summary: TV works well. Looks great. The apps work very well. 3d works well, comes with plenty of glasses and easy to get cheap replacements if needed. The tosslink port is extremely loose, some tosslink cables won't hold in place at all and even ones that work will fall out if you look at them in the wrong...

Nice TV at a great price but plan on using external speakers

  • Summary: Great TV. The price was good and this unit has plenty of nice features. I have had this unit for 8 months now and am very happy with the purchase. I have never used the 3D capability so I would not pay extra for that. Of course there are downsides to the unit as well.

Nice TV - remote should have never left the factory

B.B., Amazon
24 May 2014
  • 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: 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.

Awesome picture but apps not so good.

Homer3D, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • 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.

Everything works great! One small glitch

For You "prasad", Amazon
7 March 2014
  • 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...

  • Summary: Overall I'm happy with the deal I got. The quality control on the refurbishment is questionable. I bought 2, and both came with insufficient screws for the base. Both. Just know you might be taking a trip to home depot. Also, the base has a few scratches though nothing egregious. I would buy again.

Amazing picture and quality.

William Mark Sanford, Amazon

  • Summary: The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is the remote. The buttons are not very responsive and regularly require you to press the same button 2 or 3 times.

Excellent Pictures Resolutions

An N., Newegg
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I don't know why they shipped a remote that did not worked. But Newegg gave me a credit for the new remote I bought on e bay. I was afraid that the new remote would not work and that I would have to ship the tv back, which I did not want to do, because it would be such a big hassle to put it back...
  • Pros: For refurbished tv, the resolutions are outstanding. I have not had to adjust any settings right out of the box. I don't know why it is refurbished. I am not sure if all Vizio tv are just great products now. This is my first Vizio tv.
  • Cons: I received tv on Friday, turn it on, and the remote controller does not work. Saturday, I called Newegg. The rep gave me some steps to try to reset the remote, but that did not work. So she suggest I buy a new one on e bay. On Sunday, I purchased a new one, and received it on Wed. The new remote ...
