Some of the players and DVD's have BD Live content on the players, some of the players do not have a hard drive in them, so when you have BD live content It needs somewhere for the content to load on to thats why the players freeze up and wont even play the DVD. If you notice on the front of the player there is a USB port on this one, and on all VIZIO Blu-Ray players, and even other brands, and some use SD cards for them to load the content onto them. so you need to purchase a USB Flash Drive for the content to load onto. I have had 10 Blu-Ray players and when they came out with BD Live content and got cheeper in price, they took out the drive that it loads onto, so the movie can freeze up the player to where it wont play the movie at all till you put in the flash drive. How i found this out, I had purchased a different brand and it sat there for 4 hrs trying to load the disc and i got frustrated and called the manufacture, he told me this information and thats how i found this out, it will search and search for the place to down load the content onto, when it finds the content and where to load it, it starts to play the movie. I hope this helps people out in making there next purchase.
We got this as a present. We have visio TV, and love it, but this blueray is aweful. The first one we got, when you put the DVD in, and it started to spin/load, it was soo loud, and the noise continued through the movie. We exchanged it, and the one we have now, isn't loud, but is so frustrating. The buttons don't always work. It will turn on, but then I can't get it to open, then when I finaly get it open it won't read the dvd my son watch just the night before. I eject it, and reload it, then sometimes it work, sometimes I have to do it for a 3rd time.
I have had this for 1 week. Only reason it has not been returned is walmart is 35 miles away. At first if I played a BRAY it was great then if i wanted to use apps (netfix) had to unplug it then plug back in. Now it wont even play a blu-ray Just sits "loading" for ever. And yes this was tried with 3 different discs. Oh yes there was a firmware update. Did not help.
If I would have taken more time and looked this series up online I would have known this is a very common problem.
I answered every day for use not entirely true. If it worked I would except that it does not work..
I tried too play a 3d bluray out of the box it froze up and the screen went garbled. I then played a bluray it jerked. I then played a dvd it played ok. I updated the player via internet with the exact same results afterwords. The question is is it a fluke? I get back to you on that. At this time I do not recmmend this product.
well.... I was reluctant to buy this as some people were having issues with it, but I decided to give it a try and am glad I did. I however, as soon as I hooked it up for the first time, did the "firmware" update before watching any movies. I have watched Avatar and the entire Star Wars trilogy on blue ray and have had no problems whatsoever. I like the internet apps.... very fun. I am going to give this player 5 stars as I have not had any of the issues other people have had and for the money, you can't beat it.
Have owned this 3D Blu-ray Player over a week and a half. Bought it along with a Vizio 42" 3D HDTV. The first thing I did out of the box was connect it with an ethernet cable and allow it to update its firmware before inserting any disc. After updates it then displayed the VIA menu for streaming online content . So far the player has performed very well.. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching 3D movies and it made great improvements in the picture quality and sound of older DVD's. It also delivers excellent sound when playing CD's through my full range surround sound system.
This player was bought to use in my bedroom so being wired is not an issue. However, a wireless 3D Blu-ray Player will be my next upgrade for the main theater room.
I am pleased with the quality of picture, 3d effect, and sound that I get with this product. It was inexpensive, too!
My VR 333 has performed flawlessly with my Vizio 554 3D TV.
The buttons on the remote do have to pressed too hard but I always control the player with the TV remote or the Direct TV remote..
I see W#l Mart does'nt have the TV in stock anymore. They dropped the price almost $500.00 on the TV and close $60.00 on the blu Ray player.
The 1080p 3D on my tv/blu ray combo is excellent. I have not seen active or passive systems that were better.
Pros- plays fine. Cheap
Cons - lid lip for the tray for the discs got misaligned. Prevented me from loading discs. Had to manually snap it back in place. Worked fine after that. Takes a long time to load.
Great 3D PLAYER THE WHOLE FAMILY LOVE IT AND WITH THE 3D TV it is wonderful it is the best.
vizios addition of the you tube app makes that alone a great reason to purchase this unit. it works flawlessly playing both 2d and 3d dvds without any problems. it is a much better version than the early vizio 3d dvd player which i also own. it has a display window and external buttons which their earlier model lacked.
The only drawback is having to use an ethernet wi-fi connection with this model which was easily solved by adding a much needed anyway wi-fi range extender
This thing is a piece of junk. We bought it about 2 weeks ago and there were no reviews online but since it was a Vizio we thought it would be great. It didn't work right from the first time we used it and it just continued to get worse until it completely died last night. And one of our favorite DVD's is trapped inside. Fail.
Very good experience buying from Walmart.com and Blue Ray player is very nice. A+++++
I got this Player as part of a Bundle I Hooked it up and had it going in under five Mins is does what it says it does and gave me no problems It's a very simple player and I say if your looking for a Low Priced 3D Blu-Ray Player This one will do the job
I ordered this for a Christmas present. We hooked it up and it did not work. Called Vizio support and they walked me through a system reset. It still did not work and they said it needed to be replaced. The return process was simple. I returned my defective piece to my local Wal-mart store with no problems. I ordered a replacement on the Tuesday after Christmas and received it on Friday! This one works great. Hook up was easy. Picture is great with my new Vizio TV. Love it!
everything Vizio., from my 55" flat screen with Vizio Sound Bar/wireless Sub Wofer/with two satelite speakers all connect and make my entertainment time top rated. Thanks Vizio/Wal Mart for the great products and pricing.
Works well and provides an excellent 3D picture. Used on my Vizio TV bundle I picked up. Lowest price for a 3D player with the quality. Like all of them, needs an HDMI cable. Could use my Vizio remote without programming.
I've had this DVD player for 2 months and have no problems whatever.It has WiFi built in;plays blue ray discs with no problem and I'm a Netflix viewer.The only complaint I might mention ,it does load slowly .The remote I would rate as slightly below average but something I can live with.And finally it is priced 50 to 60 dollars below Sony and Samsung(which I also use) .As to the older models ,Vizio may have improved the newer models.P.S. How can you beat Walmart's policy of return a product within 90 days if you are not satisfied.
This is great value for less than $100! I only gave 4 stars for "meets expectations" because Blockbuster-on-Demand is no longer supported. The most amazing part is the Vizio telephone support - it is a lifetime feature, and all support is located in the USA!
purchased to go with my tv and I have had no issues with it. I love my whole setup. Thanks Vizio for making me a fan all over again.
