If you own a Vizio TV, which I do, this remote is FAR superior to the remotes that come with most Vizio TVs. The buttons are much larger with more space between them, so pressing the button that you actually intend to press without error is much easier. GREAT price, too, and easy to set up with the proper code for your TV. The only Con on the set up is that the remote doesn't have an automatic seeking function that would quickly find the proper code, as many other universal remotes have. However, again, if you have a Vizio TV, this remote can be quickly programmed manually with the proper code. The biggest issue is the poor construction of the plastic face plate, which has rough edges on most of the openings for the rubber key pad below. Because of these rough edges, the keys stick, and many do not work at all, at least not without intense multiple pressing. So, I had to take apart the two halves of the plastic shell (if you don't know how to take about a press fit remote, don't do it, as it is easy to snap in many pieces, unrepairably broken). Once apart, you can use a rat tailed file or a small sharp exacto knife to whittle away at the edges of each of the openings in the plastic top plate. When done smoothing all the openings, give the rubber key pad a quick coating of 100% silicon spray, and reassemble. Now, it works fabulously, and FAR BETTER than the original remote. However, unless you are comfortable doing the modification that I've described, do NOT buy this, as you will be frustrated and disappointed.
