After a few months of use the remote stopped working so I changed the bateries to no avail. Wrote Vizio and they said it lost it's programming. What? A remote lost it's programming? They gave me the procedure to reprogram and it worked, for a bout a month. Two nights ago it lost it's programming again. And the sound quality of this unit is no better than the RCA unit it replaced.<br /><br />Steer clear of this one!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
