Summary: I purchased a Vizio VBR100 (walmart model) from Walmart in December of 2009 for a Christmas present for my son. When the unit quit playing blu ray discs in November 2010, I contacted Vizio because the unit is supposed to have a 1 year warranty. The service people were very nice and we went through a week of trying to get a firmware upgrade loaded.
Summary: The VIZIO VBR110 Blu-Ray player is a more than satisfactory entry to the world of 1080P Blu-Ray material. As suggested in their advertising, this unit will "upgrade" the quality of your existing DVD collection. What this means is simply this- your DVD's will play flawlessly on this device and the output will fill the screen of any 1080i/p HDTV. Your DVD's will look pretty much the same as before, but will fill the 16x9 screen with more than acceptable resolution.
Summary: It's apparent immediately that this is a cheap blueray player. The remote's buttons are hard to press and make a loud clicking noise when pressed. Very annoying. The buttons on the actual player itself don't work on mine, I hope I never lose the remote. I use this mainly to watch Netflix. Every single task takes way longer than it should. If I want to stop a movie that's playing I hit stop on the remote and it takes a minute or so until it actually stops.
Summary: DON'T BUY THIS if you have Verizon Fios. I've spent hours and hours with techs from both Vizio and Verizon and they can't get this player to connect wirelessly. There's nothing unusual in my set-up and I've had no problems wirelessly connecting a desk-top, lap-top, printer, or ROKU player. The Verizon people tried all kinds of things without success, walking me through all kinds of manual input.
Summary: I have had this model blu-ray player for a few years now. It has been flawless. Purchased at Costco and it was very inexpensive. I use this with my Vizio LED HD TV and Vizio surround sound bar system.
Summary: I bought a highly rated blue ray from a discount electronics store which according to them was a "Best Buy" and had to return my purchase twice. On the second return, I asked for my money back instead of a third player. I then checked Consumer Reports and bought a "reconditioned" unit from a supplier through Amazon. Works beautifully.
Save yourself the headache and buy something else!

Summary: My mother recently bought the Vizio VBR110 as a gift for my father, and I in turn bought him the Blu-ray Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection available here on Amazon. While it was easy to set up and played my parent's DVDs just fine, the player crashed whenever a Star Trek Blu-ray Disc was inserted, requiring an unplugging and a quick press of the Eject button when it powered back up in order to prevent it from crashing again.

Summary: I have purchased many products from Amazon including my new Samsung 42" Plasma over the years. This review will be about a purchase somewhere else. Some things have to be. I worried over my choice of a lower price Blue Ray player. I wanted quality, but knowing how much my wife and I use the thing, we'd never get to use the bells and whistles such as Netflix and Youtube. Consequently, I looked for good to better reviews on the bottom Sharp22 and the Vizio110.
