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. At one point in time the player received the firmware update that allowed it to play the updated blu ray discs.
Summary: After one of their online sw upgrades got the message "Upgrade Failed". That failed upgrade killed all the wifi applications (Netflix, Pandora, VUDU, FACEBOOK, etc). Can still play disks but that's all it can do now, happened a bit after the 1yr warranty expired, VIZIO will not replace it even do the failure was caused by their software update. I'll stay away from this brand from now on. I recommend you do the same.
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. It is a disappointment.
Summary: JUST STAY AWAY. I have had this oversized paperwieght for far too long. The remote sucks, the Netflix app is slow, and now it will not update to play the newest DVD's. Such crap. What a waste of $$.
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. So I never got the Blu ray and had to replace my TV because the Blu ray somehow burned out some key part in the TV, which to repair was 5/6 the cost of a new tv. I wouldn't buy another vizio product, ever.
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. The disk were sent to me because the other ways to update firmware (this is suppose to be automatic) did not work.
Summary: Everything is fine with this machine except for one thing. And it's a biggie. The open/close function is INSANE!!!! Slow? OMG soooooooooo sloooooooooooooooooow. More,importantly,there is no indicator as to whether or not the beast is opening or closing. That's important becuase the switch is a POS!! No click, nothing, to indicate it is working. Sadly the crappy remote doesn't improve things. It makes us want to scream. I will NEVER buy another vizio product.
