Summary: Got this 3d Blu-ray player in Aug of 2011 and my son got the same player for christmas 2012. As Cindy says below Vizio is no longer making updates. Blu-ray players are software based therefore always needing updates as the code on new BRD changes. So this player useless for any new movies. I will never buy any Vizio products again and there should be a class action suit by all the people who bought this unit.
terrible! great for old disks, but the newer ones wont play. they also wont update firmware either anymore!

Summary: we have had this for a while, but it wont play any new movies, you go to the website to update firmware, but guess what, none. when you contact customer service, they tell you that you should buy a new blu ray player.... awesome. no more vizio for us.
Not the best but not as bad as the rest are making it out to be

Summary: I've had this player for 1 1/2 years and have had few problems with it. It plays 3d blu ray disc, 2d blu rays,DVDs and media disc( digital copies I burn to a blank DVD) with no problem. The only complaint I have is for some reason this player has a bit of a problem reading 2d disney disc on the first try. I have to keep ejecting until it acknowledges the disc then it plays fine. It's a bit of an inconvinance but I don't play 2d disney disc that often.
Summary: I purchased both a Visio 3D TV and this BD player to replace my old equipment in the living room. While it plays both 2D and 3D blue rays fairly well, I have a heck of a time with commercial DVD discs. It freezes up all the time and I have to wait, and wait, and wait until the unit finally shuts itself off, turn the unit on again, and manually find my way back to the point where the disc froze. With this ridiculously unnecessarily huge remote, it's not easy.
Decent BluRay player but the Wireless is almost useless.

Summary: Once I disabled the auto-play function, the blu-ray is a dream. The remote is a bit of a problem, when pressing the buttons the player responds about every third button press. Once it acknowledges the signal, the transition from on thing to another is aggravatingly slow. The built in Wifi is 802.11n which sounds great, until you use it. With the device installed into my unit at least it has trouble staying connected.
Summary: Player was purchased December 2011, less than 1 1/2 years old. Vizio told me yesterday and today by phone (numerous calls) that they were no longer providing firmware updates for their blu ray players. Naturally I was upset, spoke to several employees, including supervisors. All but one told me "Vizio is getting out of the blu ray business". How dare they take money for machines they have no intention of supporting with necessary updates. NO MORE VIZIO for our family!
Summary: Unit worked fine for the first couple of months. Then it would begin to intermittently turn itself off. Cycling it on and off sometimes resolved the problem, but not always. Some days it just decided to turn itself off at random intervals and immediately turn itself back off when I would try to restart it. It has finally decided to remain turned off for good. I really would not recommend this unit. Paid $140 for it and it only lasted for 9 months.
Summary: Too bad zero stars are not an option. Bought it in June and less than 10 DVDs an six months later it was done. Contacted Tech support through chat which I knew would be of no help. It was DOA and the only option would have been to repair it. It was actually under warranty but like $25 car batteries with a lifetime warranty you have to ask yourself is it worth it? No it's not, buy another brand, I am.
