Summary: I found my player at walmart, but wanted to include my review since I've read so many negative reviews here. positives: + player is easy to setup and had it connected to my wifi within minutes. All internet apps work great.
Summary: I have had the Vizio for over a month now. As far as the player goes, I love it, couldn't be happier. Some reviewers say it's noisy. After watching Netflix through my Xbox for some time now, I think the Vizio is very quiet. Do you get some noise, yes.
Summary: I've had this player for a couple of weeks now. Some of the reviews I've read here are completely contradictory to my experience. Overall, I'd have to say I'm well satisfied with the unit. Connecting to my wifi network was simple.
Summary: Sleek looking and an excellent buy. It would have been great to have had more apps like Amazon and Blockbusters. Like the wi-fi. The remote control is not laid out well: No back light. Print not easy to read.
Summary: I've had the VIZIO VBR200W Full HD Blu-ray Player with VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA) for a week now and have put it through it's paces. As a little background on my usage, I bought this player for my bedroom to connect to my Samsung 40" 1080p LCD TV for Netflix streaming and blu-ray disc playback.
Pretty slick, but some drawbacks (No access to Amazon Video on Demand)

Summary: Actually pretty slick. Netflix, Vudu and Pandora are cool. Still, a few disappointments... - yes, batteries are practically DOA (similar responsiveness issues that others noted, but after changing to Duracells worked fine) - remote is infrared / unfortunately not bluetooth, so you must be in same...
Summary: I received the item on Monday afternoon.On Tuesday morning I set it up in about 10-15 min. During the installation process, I ran into NO TECHNICAL PROBLEM. The item found my WiFi network quickly and before you know it I was online listening to Pandora. Later I watched Universal Soldier with Vudu.
Summary: No HDMI cable... Amazon clearly states: "...fits your screen. The included HDMI cable delivers the best picture quality and sound in a single connection..." in the second paragraph under the graphic of the player. Beyond that, the picture is great!
Summary: Player seems to work as described. Setup was easy, Netflix connected and streamed a movie immediately after entering code. Haven't tried VuDu or Pandora yet, but will do so soon. BluRay looks great on the wifes' 720p Sony, and sounds fine. No battery issues as of yet. A few annoyances though.
