I noticed a lot of people have given this product nasty reviews and I am not sure why. My player did not have a sticker on the top nor did it fail to opperate as advertised. While this unit is clearly not top of the line, it is not advertised as such. It is an inexpensive little unit and is for people who might not have a lot of money but want to start finding out what BluRay is all about. If you want all the bells and whistles then this unit is not for you, but if you want an adequate affordable unit to start out then this will fill the bill.

after reading the reviews i still decided to buy this bluray player. I LOVE IT. as for the bad reviews, i dont believe some people have ever used the bluray technology before.. I had a sony for 3 years, the load time on this unit is MUCH faster than my first generation sony.. Is it slow? kind of, but its common with bluray players. as for the people who said internet apps dont work, i think they should check their connection.. this player does not have wifi, but if plugged into your home router, and if your internet is fast enough, it seems to work great! i use it nightly for netlflix. Remember with bluray players, anytime it wont play a disc UPDATE it.. I cant stress that enough! old players, you would update daily it felt like.. this one i have never ran into a problem updates wont fix. the only problem i had with this unit was the glue like mentioned before.. but instead of spending hours to get it off, buy some goo gone.. glue was off in under 5 minutes!!!! overall i would recommend this if you are looking for a budget player. it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a more expensive player (quick start, wifi, etc) but for the price it works and is much faster than first generation players. my longest wait with this unit was under 1 min.. my old sony took 15 mins sometimes to load and YES thats common with old players

Love this product, mine works great and I am replacing my Sony I had for about 2 years now. I bought this just for the all the extra Internet Apps. The Internet Apps are awesome, VUDU, Pandora Radio and we use Netflix a lot at home. I see a lot of negative reviews here but I don’t understand, everything works great maybe the complainers should do the firmware upgrade, that is the first thing I do on all my electronic products is check for the latest updates. I bought an Acer laptop from Wally World last year and every driver was out of date, new out of the box. I would recommend you connect it with a Ethernet cable to your network, it can be updated so easy. Also the small size of this player fits great next to my cable box (same size)! Over all Vizio is a great brand always finding ways to give you more then you expect and this VBR120 is not one to complain about. Pro’s Blu-Ray movie picture quality is life like, even on DVD’s the upscaling is tremendous. The 7.1 channel surround sound is fantastic especially with Pandora, and now I can watch Netflix anytime. I really excepted just an average unit at this price, but you got to hand it to Vizio all this for only $98, unbelievable. Vizio didn’t include a user manual or was that a Wal-Mart request to save the environment? I guess I am one of those people who doesn’t read the instructions anyway, if I can figure it out without a book, I just take it back, but this little unit is superb, easy to use. Con’s The remote control has these little half moon buttons which are a bit funky (looks good, but hard to use), the overall feel of the remote is a bit cheesy. The Blu-Ray player response time is twice as fast as my old Sony, but still slow, my advice to owners is don’t push too many buttons at once you will just make it worse. I had this problem on my Sony when I asked them why it was so slow they explained how much data is being loaded (about 28gig’s) to get such a good picture. The other thing that bugged me was some of the default settings like “Auto Play” which makes the unit play the disc automatically ever time you turn the unit on. Sometimes I just want to use the internet app’s and if I forget to take the disc out, I have to wait to get to Pandora or Netflix, so I had to change a few settings in the setup menu no big deal.

Wow was I disappointed. I figured the price was lower because it had a wired connection instead of wireless - Big Dumb Me didn't read any reviews. I trusted Vizio because everything I'd had from them before has been better than I expected and performed flawlessly. Well, sorry to say Vizio has a Terrible Loser here. This thing Just Does Not Work. The Remote had to be - I am not making this up, I measured - 4 inches from the front of the unit. Which put me off to such an angle I could operate the control and see what was on screen at the same time. Mind you, the unit was in the Exact Same Spot my old (WORKING!) DVD player was in, and right above our (WORKING!) Cable Box which in turn is above our (WORKING!) Sound System. Then, I connected to the Internet. Pretty simple, right? I have an Ethernet Switch about 8 feet away, so I plugged right in. It SAID it was connected, then I ran the tests. Got an IP address, DNS was OK, etc., then it said "Connection to ... timeout." Connection to what is left to your imagination, dear reader. Nothing worked. I guess that was to be expected. But no error message? Nothing. "Netflix->" Blank Screen. "Pandora"-> Blank Screen. I was so aggravated. At myself for staring at the blank screens waiting for something to happen. One one thousand, two one thousand ... up to 21-one thousand poof... This is The Worst Product I have Ever laid eyes or hands upon. If this product goes on sale for 1 penny do not buy it. If someone OFFERS to GIVE you this thing for FREE you should seriously re-evaluate your relationship with that person because they obviously hate you. If for some reason this unit simply appears at your door you will know it has been left by Dark Forces and you should immediately and without hesitation put it directly into the trash. You may wish to drive it directly to the dump in case a raccoon accidentally finds it and hooks it up in his house and gets rabies and then tries to bite you. POSTSCRIPT: The bottom of this review form asks "How often to you use the product," and the only proper response is "N/A": since it never worked, I couldn't *possibly* ever use it. I tried. Oh, I tried.

1st machine worked great for 4 days-- then started opening tray back up every time I'd try to put in a DVD. Took it back and exchanged it. 2nd machine played 1 DVD no problem. Put in a BluRay and first it couldn't seem to load it, then it finally started playing it with a bad pic; lines running through like it was dirty. Then 35 min into the BluRay it shut itself off & restarted itself. I'm taking it back to get a Sony. Vizio has great TV's-- need to work on their players

  • A. This is definately not worth buying. I did not check reviews before I purchased because I have a Vizio tv that I love and just decided to give this a try. After my issues with the dvd I decided to check the reviews to see if it was common and the issues seem to be very common on this dvd. I returned for the LG BD550. Was only a little more money and seems much better so far. Only played a few movies so far though but no freezes and load times are much better.

  • A. I bought it because of the price. After purchasing it, I noticed that when I put a dvd in, the screen would have "digital lines" across it. I thought maybe it was the dvd, which I had just bought it as well, so I put in another new dvd that I had. It did the same thing. I returned it the next day and bought the LG blue ray that was 138. After plugging it in and putting the same new dvds in this one, I have not had any problems with lines showing across the screen. So I don't know if I also got a "defective" one but i say just get the next one up because this vizo one didn't work for me. And also save your mother the trip of returning it as well.
