Junk It spams the crap out of your device with ads so quick you can't even use it. I have never given a negative feedback, ever. If I don't like it, then I say nothing but it locked up my device and I had to shut it down. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I have an older Vizio Tv. I had thrown the original remote out a few years back as my provider always included their remotes. I got tired of the prices of cable and satellite and switched to Amazon Prime and Sling Tv. Smartest thing I have done in years. This remote was very inexpensive and just what I required to turn the TV on and off and control volume. It also seems to work with the majority of Vizio tv's regardless of age. And connecting - easy, just a few questions on the screen and I was in business.
It is difficult to obtain the batteries in and the instructions do not tell you how to do so. The battery compartment is in the bottom front of the remote. It takes a lot of force to obtain it open.
The poorly written/worded instructions don't even tell you how to insert the batteries, which should have been my first clue that this thing is sweat-shop trash. After deciphering the garbled info in the instructions, I spent twenty mins pressing buttons. TV never came on. This plastic paper weight is also 50 cents more expensive than the ACTUAL REPLACEMENT VIZIO REMOTE. Smacking myself for shopping on Amazon while on my lunch break, I never read as much as I should.
I lost my remote control for my VIZIO intelligent Tv. I ordered this remote and so far so amazing (it’s been about a week of me using it). I didn’t even have to program it to my TV. I just place the batteries in the remote (which are included) and it started working. My VIZIO television is the VIZIO E-Series 29” Class Razor LED™ Intelligent TV | model: E291i-A1. In my pictures, you will see a couple of dents on the remote & batteries - please ignore them - my dog chewed it - Luckily, it still works! Amazing remote, amazing price.
Hello. First, nothing really wrong with the seller. Except that by the time tried the remote the return window had closed. So now I'm stuck with a remote the doesn't work. And why is that so? It's not really the remote per se. It's Vizio and their remote technology. The OEM remote basically sucks. You have to point it directly at the receiver for it to work. And even then sometimes you don't obtain a response. I guess Vizio doesn't care 'cause most people have cable and don't use the OEM remote. I bought this remote here on Amazon based on some of the reviews. And because it was cheap. But to be honest, it sucks too. It is my belief that the issue lies with the receiver on the TV and not necessarilly the remote. Either way, I have a remote now and it doesn't change the channels or volume like most remotes I've always used. So my recommendation is for you not to buy this remote.
I can always count on Amazon when I need to replace something that would normally be tough to find. Our remote gave up the dust after having to keep down buttons and smacking it around a bit (hahaha). I went on Amazon and did a find and ‘wala’ it arrived in two days and working fantastically. Thanks again Amazon!
My VIZIO television remote went out, after visiting several stores that sold that brand TV and none had a replacement went to AMAZON. This item well it does work and has all the buttons for NETFLIX, AMAZON PRIME ETC..., but I would ditch the Chinese batteries to be safe, it was a FUBAR to begin to input the batteries and almost figured it was broken after prying it begin to place them in. Additionally it is very related in looks to an original VIZIO remote. My tip spend the additional bux and order direct from VIZIO next time.
I thought I was buying an original Vizio remote control (it was not). The material seems inferior to the original. There is no keyboard on the reverse side, like the original. Out the box, it works like the original. I did not have to set up anything, or program it. So, I guess I'll keep on to it for now.
Our adorable Pitbull mix pup destroyed the remote that came with our Vizio Intelligent TV...I left the house for a whole hour & she decided I required to be punished. Well jokes on her because this remote is literally plug n play. I popped in the batteries, pointed it my Vizio and that’s all she wrote, the TV came on. No programming. No hassle. Kind of shocked it didn’t need programming as our Vizio TV is nearly 10 years old...we were Cable Cutters BEFORE it was fashionable. I’m seriously hoping that this one is a lot less delicious than the original remote because her separation anxiety clearly has the potential to become expensive!
Responds better than the original remote ever did. My only complaint is the buttons click when you press them. My husband thinks this may fade over time. Amazing replacement for Vizio remote.
Fantastic!!! We used Peel Intelligent Remote for the majority of the time we lost our original remote, and the ads got absolutely ridiculous and we couldn't connect it to our television. I scoured through playstore until I found a vizio remote like peel smart, and this ended up being a thousand times easier to manage!!!
Works well enough, full screen ads on begin are a small irritating but honestly no worse than Peel forcing updates every other day. Have had a few lock-ups, but I'm on an older phone so I can't entirely fault the app. Other apps I tried were missing buttons or unresponsive, so I'm just glad it works. Used for my E371VL
Saved the day for me! Using another generic application i managed to break the TV in our hotel room and the wife was not to happy. i found this application and was able to fix everything on the TV back to the method it was. For Vizio TV this is must.
It works excellent I was amazed! It helped me so much when I lost the vizio remote to my tv. Remember You MUST have a IR blaster on your phone or smartphone in order to use it or less it will not work. I am using this application on a Samsung tablet.
Works well, but would be better if Vizio home button brought the bottom menu, and if you could change the application buttons at the top (if you wish YouTube instead of Amazon, for example). My (misplaced) remote has various buttons.
Stupid ad that MUST load before you can use the remote takes over 30 seconds to launch, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Application experience completely ruined because developer needs to create $0.01 every sungle time it's launched. Infinitely annoying. Uninstalled.
Simple. Does exactly what it says it does. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Solid application. Nothing negative with this app. . . *Idea 💡: I know our remote comes in black....but it'd be beautiful cool if we could change the black to a various color. Or even just change the color of the buttons.
