- vbr120 Review by high expectations
We bought the vbr120 at Walmart 3weeks ago,and only played 3 dvds(all of which were great) but we went to play a new blue ray disc for my son we got no pic,or sound.we are planning to exchange the player.
About 5yrs ago I bought a 32in lcd visio tv and have nothing but good things to say about that,I even recommend visio to my friends,so I have high hopes on my exchange.

I bought the VBR 334 from Costco for $150. Now I can watch Netflix instants...stick in a DVD..pull it out and stick in a CD...go to Pandora and listen to my favorite tunes. This thing is hot and it comes with HDMI cable..an at least $30 value. Whats not to like?

- What to do with the LAN port? Review by esteven
I love this VBR110, especially how fast it loads a BlueRay disc. Color is great, so is the sound. Yes, you have to aim at the player, but no big deal. I used it for over a year. Works like a champ. Firmware updated like a breeze.
The big deal is: I want to connect to NetFlixxxxxxxxxxxxx.

- Excellent purchase Review by Mark
Bought this player at costco at a reasonable price. It's being used with a 37'' Vizio 120 HD smooth motion. This machine is great for watching either DVD or Blue Rey disc. It's fantastic!

- EXCELLENT Blu-Ray player, make sure firmware update is installed BEFORE you use! Review by GS455Stage2
I bought this unit on Ebay a month ago for $65.00 in PERFECT CONDITION with the instruction manual, remote, and HDMI cable. It turns out the original purchaser returned it after LESS THAN A WEEK of use because some Blu-Ray discs would not play. I found the problem-the firmware update had not been done! It took me me just FIVE MINUTES to install it and the problem was FIXED! Any CD or DVD or Blu-Ray discs I have played have run FLAWLESSLY!
I looked at MANY other Blu-Ray players and I really lucked out with this one. I can't beat the $65 I paid for it with only a week's worth of use on it with all original factory items intact! I don't use Pandora or Netflix, so I didn't care about paying more to get those features. There is an Ethernet connection on the back for internet streaming, but I've never used it, so I can't comment on its usefulness.

- Great Blu Ray Player 6\ 28 \2010 Review by Lee Hawk
I bought this player for myself about a year ago, and just can't say enough about it other than it's a top notch player. Not many frills,, but if your looking just a top player this is it. I wanted to buy another one for my son,, but it seems nobody sells them anymore. I have looked the internet high and low and found one at Sams Club at $118.00 on sale and bought it. A few months ago they were sold at Costco,Wal-mart, BJ's and Target, but these stores no longer carry the VBR110... Vizio Web price is just to high by the time shipping and tax is added. If you can find one at a store near you, don't wait and think about it.... Buy it, you will be glad you did...Good luck finding one..Amazon has them through another company for $ 149.00 plus shipping

- Disney Blu-ray Broke it Review by reiththestud
I really love this blu-ray player. Upconverted DVD's look great. Unfortunately, the way Disney formats their blu-ray disks its ability to pay blu-rays. Played DVD's just fine, but wouldn't play any blu-rays.
Luckily, the new firmware(026) fixed the problem and now all my blu-rays and dvds work just fine. Great purchase. Highly recommended.

- Great Blu-Ray player! Review by Mike
Got my Blu-Ray player the other day from the VIP program and it's great! So easy to set up and work with just the HDMI cable that even comes with it. This player loads fast, has an excellent picture and I even played some home JPEG'S on it from a data dvd. Also, if you are playing a standard DVD instead of a Blu-Ray, it up converts it almost as if it's in 1080p...it's just a real simple cool player. Got to say i'm loving it and for the competition....it should give em something to think about, for example...lowering there prices if they want to stay in the HD game. Go Vizio!

- Great Picture! Review by ambien
I just got this Blu Ray Player that came with a hdmi cable at Target for 75 bucks in the clearance section and it is a great value and a great player. the remote is a lil bulky but ive seen worse. It has no long load up times a cool looking start up screen and it goes perfect with my 37" Vizio LCD tv and Vizio Sound Bar that i got at Comp USA for 89. I love Vizio and all of their products.

- It Plays Blu Ray Discs ... Yes It Does! Review by Tony
I was torn between a Sharp whose stock number I forget and this machine. Both were being offered under $100 at the end of January. H.H.Gregg offered the Sharp. My BJ's club had the Vizio in stock.
To tell the truth, I was torn between both machines. I liked the idea that I might be able to watch Netfllix movies and YouTube videos on the Sharp, versus a paucity of said activity on the Vizio. What turned the tide were the reviews against the Sharp.
Many new owners were having problems with load-up time for the Blu-Ray discs; not so. I inserted the disc and within a minute the menu was up on the screen and the disc ready to play. Others complained that the Sharp had difficulty recognizing a regular DVD; once again, not so. I loaded one of my favorite comedies of all time, "Harlem Nights". What the Vizio did for the older DVD disc was nothing short of incredible. The colors were pure and the rendition on the screen was crisp and clear. In addition, what the Vizio did for the rendition of the soundtrack was amazing. I run the machine through a Yamaha 5.1 receiver; nothing fancy. The speakers are Sony columns and the surround is supplied by a three speaker set which came from The Speaker Company. It really is good enough for me; and with the Vizio orchestrating the Dolby, it is better than more than enough! I inserted a Blu-Ray copy of the Phantom of the Opera. What magnificent crispness of detail; and the sound ..... it makes my skin prickle just to think about the booming bass and the clear highs. Fantastic!
You won't hear or even notice the Vizio working. It is completely silent. The front is devoid of all bright lights; none are needed.
As with the other reviews, I also have qualms about the remote. They could have done a lot better. My feeling is that they made the angle of reception at the machine just a little to acute. One MUST truly aim the remote at the player to get it to work. A few inches left or right of the target and nothing happens. That is what some reviewers are seeing as 'difficulty in mashing the buttons'.
If you want a machine that plays discs faithfully, quietly, and gives a beautiful rendition of cinematic sound in the living room then this Vizio unit is definitely for you. I have it mated to my Samsung 42" Plasma. The precision of the player is striking; especially at the price. This is a no lose situation.

- Needs a few tweaks, but awesome player Review by Scott
I bought the VBR110 at Costco for $99.00 over Thanksgiving and have been wearing it out ever since!
Pros: Fast loading time, excellent picture quality (on my Vizio SV420XVT), suberb value, HDMI cable included
Cons: Remote is "iffy", menu is "always on" (I want to see the cool Vizio logo!), no firmware updates via ethernet, no frills
First of all, let me say that NONE of the cons should turn you off from this player. They don't do anything to detract from the purpose this machine was built - to play Blu-ray discs. On that front this player wins hands down.
Set-up was a breeze. Before I took down my old (component) DVD player I put a copy of a DVD I happen to own two copies of in each player. I was stunned at how well the Vizio "upscaled" the regular DVD. It was like the difference between watching cable TV and antenna TV. VERY marked difference.
On the Blu-ray front, I've heard many "horror" stories about "extreme" load times on Blu-ray discs on inexpensive players. Not on this one. You put in the Blu-ray and within a minute, you are watching a movie. Longer than a DVD? Sure. Annoying? Not at all.
On the con side, the remote isn't that great. I find myself mashing the buttons several times to make them work, and it just doesn't fit as well in my hand as my Vizio TV remote does. Would have liked to see something better there.
I'm also surprised that you can't update the firmware from the ethernet connection. The only options are memory stick or disc.
When you turn the player on, the menu is always up, hiding the cool Vizio logo behind it. You can turn it off, but it always comes back up. Small detail, but something I would like to be different.
It doesn't have any of the "extras" you get with higher end players (YouTube, Pandora, Netflix, etc.). Who knows if that will come in a firmware update or not (it looks like the buttons are on the remote to support it). Certainly not critical, especially for the price.
The bottom line? Buy this player. Save your money on a $200-$300 machine (unless you HAVE to have Netflix, Pandora, etc.). If you are looking for a machine that plays Blu-ray discs, and plays them well, this is the best value out there.

- Great Player Review by Mr. Mr
I have owned plenty of dvd players, Sony, Toshiba, Samsung, etc. And they always have such basic design errors either in rendition quality or user interface, it makes you wonder if anyone has any common sense. Finally I've found an intelligently designed product that is just great.
The VBR110 is a killer. I bought one to upgrade to Blu-ray and liked it so much I bought a second one for the theater. One is set up with a 47" Vizio LCD on HDMI and the other is on a Sanyo PLV-Z2 projector using Component. They're both smashing in clarity, color rendition and depth, and the sound is top-shelf, too.
The remote is a bit large and button feel is too stiff for me, but to balance those issues Vizio has designed an intuitively simple to use layout that other manufacturers should go to school on. [Especially Søny.]
The player itself is a very solid unit. It is big enough to dissipate heat, of substantial heft to resist vibration and stiff enough that the weight of other components sitting on it won't affect it. It is, in short, 'old school' design, like before the world was overrun by cheap Chinese crap, but applied to cutting edge technology. The cosmetic design is also pleasingly spare and supports the impression of professional engineering embodied in this player.
Vizio has really put some engineering effort into this unit, and it shows. For $119 at Costco it is an insane buy. I can't tell you how happy I am with Vizio's design ethic and results.

- Vizio is king Review by Visual Junkie Mel
I had just picked up this particular model & I am virtually amazed of its features. My brother-in-law suggested getting Vizio's products when it came to great High Definition LCDs so I assumed the same for Bluray players as well. Vizio blew the competition out the water with this product. The picture quality of it is amazing. Clean, crisp, details show on screen. Sound quality enhances the movies so much it seems as though its happening inside the house. You can even play movies from your flash drive. I popped in the Bluray version of Pirates of the Caribbean and the player made me feel like I was watching a LIVE show. Even popping in a Standard DVD of 300 looked a 3D feast. It made me want to go through my entire DVD collection again. I surely got my money's worth. It has more quality loaded features and with 1/3rd of the price from other brand-names. Samsung was my first choice. Now it'll always be Vizio.

- great unit Review by feeDogg
I really like this unit. one nice feature is you can just turn unit off remove disc insert later and boom unit knows exactly where you left off. But on some blue ray movies it does not do that all the time which can be frustrating especially if you pause for a length of time to i.e. use the bathroom or answer the phone the unit will just go into to screen saver mode which is good but then with out warning power will just shut off. Overall really good unit though. If anyone knows any tricks with this unit to correct some off these what i call issues to me, please let me know thanks Alot D. Feeman

- Future Support? Review by John G
This Bluray has worked pretty well for me. It has played multiple formats without a hitch. DVDs, Bluray, home brew AVCHD movies. Playing via USB interface no problems. Quick start time. I am hoping that there will be a firmware patch that could enable VIA app. If that happens it would be awesome.. Great picture nice playback good value.

- Excellent value Review by sonny
I am really glad I purchased this player. I received a defective remote and called Vizio to complain. They are sending a new one. I also own a harmony 659 universal remote, so I programmed it for the Vizio and was able to use my player. This is a fantastic unit. It blows away the Phillips and the Sony I use to own. It loads up much faster than either one of them and gives my 55 inch Vizio a great picture.

- Superb...simply superb! Review by Dan
Purchased this player yesterday for a very reasonable price and all that I can say is "wow"! The features and picture on this player blows my much more expensive Sony Player away. The loading of the discs are so much faster than many of the units that my Friends own and the 7.1 surround adds the cherry on top. Thanks Vizio...this unit is a perfect compliment to my 47 inch Vizio LCD.

- You won't need to buy blu-ray DVDs Review by pnp1020
I bought this unit over Samsung and Sony because it beat them both on price. It automatically upconverts your regular DVD's with astounding quality...you won't have to buy the blu-ray version as it plays the regular DVDs very well. Bonus features includes: 1.) it will play mp3s and 2.) you can use your TV as a slide show player for JPGs. Downside is no wireless network connection, but then again, I only paid half of what those units go for.
