Summary: I was looking for a blue ray that did not require HDMI. This was one of the few. It freezes often, normally takes a good 3-5 minutes to eject or put in a DVD and I have run into blue ray disks that it wont play without updates. It was the cheapest so I guess I got what I paid for.
Already unsupported when I bought it, won't play some Blu-Ray movies because Vizio no longer supports this model

Summary: I bought this unit because it was the only one that still has component outputs. I have a Mitsubishi 65" rear-projection TV that came out six months before HDMI was standard on every TV. Since it still has an excellent picture (better than some of the new LED jobs IMHO), I do not wish to get rid of it as yet. That and a new TV that is the same size costs around $3000 and this thing cost around $130.
Summary: Some of the current and new blu-ray discs do not work with this blu-ray player. I called vizio and they said that there are no upgrades for this player. And that she didn't see any in the near future. So some of the newer discs do not play. As of 1/10/14. I would research any players before purchase. Don't waste your money on something that doesn't work the way it should.
Summary: Bought a Visio VBR333 in 9/2011. Died in a few months and got a new unit in 1/2012. Never played a disc but streaming was fine for 2 years. Now it dies a few minutes after it is turned on. So far, I have been unable to obtain any tech support. I will never buy a Visio again.
Summary: I just received this Blou Ray in the mail today. I hooked it up to my Vizio 3D TV, put my 3D Harry Potter into the Blu Ray......and.....Zappp! I saw the first 20 seconds of the movie. We called Vizio and they informaed us that this was thier 1st model 3d tv and that it does not come equipped with a manual release at the back to remove your DVD incase of damage. They send to send it to them and they will remove the DVD.
