Summary: I have owned this blu ray player for about two years. When I first received the player it worked as well as the other reviews described. It is slow to start, and is excessively loud. The reason I am giving this player one star is because of a firmware issue Vizio refuses to resolve.
Summary: I bought this some time ago, and bought it to have some type of integration to my Vizio flat-screen. Not much there. The remote is 99% geared to the Blue Ray Player, so that was a flop. I can't believe it is still being sold, therefore I am commenting on it to save you from this awful device.
Summary: I have a Vizio TV, flat screen. Should be cake to install to two together. First one they sent me was defective. A week wasted. Second one was defective. Turns out the two machines together kept burning the other one's innards out.
Summary: Everything works except the ability to update the firmware. Talked to Vizio support and after they sent out two disk so that I could update the firmware manually, they pretty much told me since the product was out of warranty I was screwed.
Summary: I bought this item and was told that it would have applications like hulu added when the firmware was available. Now Vizio tells me they can, but will not be adding HULU to my blueray. It will however be on cheaper/newer blueray players.
Summary: Product barely worked for several months, and disks were very slow to spin up and I often had to restart the unit to get disks to play. Very annoying. The internet apps are poorly written and frequently lock the unit up requiring a restart (usually the very poor netflix app).
You could find something better in the time it takes for this player to start

Summary: Pros- Eventually, it does work Cons- Slow as molasses This unit takes forever to get to the starting menu because the player insists on connecting to the Internet every time it turns on. Why not make it connect only when necessary, or when you ask it to check for firmware updates?
Summary: I bought this BR player at Walmart, brought it home and set it up. Setting up wireless was easy; nothing else was. The startup sequence each time you turn it on takes forever. The remote is terrible, with buttons that have to be pressed so hard that your fingers end up aching -- you actually have to...
Summary: Plays perfectly and surfs quickly. Wireless is flawless and Pings my wirless N through a brick wall too. Works and is packaged like the one I bought before it at Best Buy. Is cheaper than the Sony and I cant tell any faults.
