Summary: Do not Buy this!!! it won't play newer videos,because it cannot be updated with new software,i called and they said there is no software available or in the future..vizio is horrible i had a tv that the motherboard went out in less than a year..so buyer beware!!!
Summary: Might as well go back to my old DVD player. This player will not play a lot of the newer blu-ray discs because some of the formatting in them has changed and Vizio is not creating updates. Most other blu-ray players have updates out there to ensure they support new discs. Vizio has chosen not to do that. So I currently have a piece of junk sitting on top of my old dvd player.
Summary: It takes a very long time for the DVD to boot. Also, after poor performance for several months, it finally simply stopped working. Vizio TVs are great, and I own several of them, but their DVD players (I have had three) have not been high performing and I will not buy another.
Summary: This BR player has given me nothing but problems since I bought it. It doesn't like most BRD's, and spits them back out. After ten or so tries with the same disk, sometimes it'll take it and play properly. The player has a sound issue, and the sound mix on disks changes throughout the movie. One second it's unbearably loud, the next second it is inaudibly quiet. It skips at least once per disk as well.
Summary: I have never encountered such a defective product before in my life. From day one, this blu-ray player had a mind of it's own and wouldn't respond to commands from the remote. Directly interfacing with the unit didn't work much better, and just getting a movie to eject was a battle. I own a nice Vizio TV and this player fell way short on all levels.
Summary: does not play all blu-rays. does not play all double sided DVD's. pretty much just plain simple dvd's is the only thing it will play on a consistent basis. one reviewer put "works great, but if you blow on it wrong...." that's not working great. that's a piece of junk.
Excerpt: I bought the Vizio VBR100 because my son wanted a player of his own in his room.I eventually relented to buy him one.I went out and bought him a cheap one being as I thought him rather young for a expensive one and I wanted something cheap because hes a boy after all and prone to breaking things.Once I got home and unpackaged this piece of junk they had a rather large advertisment on the top of the player.This advertisment was glued to the top of the player.I was working...
