No Firmware Update!

E. Webb, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • 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.

Not so good. Slow wireless that drops frequently

D. Davis "Painter", Amazon
30 March 2013
  • 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.

Piece of Junk

M. S. Fenton, Amazon
11 March 2012
  • 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.

Good looks aren't everything

frederick "doc_47", Amazon
15 February 2012
  • 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.

no HULU

jane, Amazon
26 September 2011
  • 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.

Dreadful experience

Paul C. Soucy, Amazon
27 July 2011
  • 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...

Great wireless capability

Cigar Smoke, Amazon
18 May 2011
  • 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.

better ones now

elklodge, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: I have three different ones and this VBR220 was bought for Netflix and to rid my home of 100 dollar commercials. I now watch pay per view and Netflix. You need a computer to view Netflix rather than spending minutes to fumble through the movies.

Great features, poor product

Seth Chabot "Sethbacca", Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this at WalMart for about 130 a couple weeks ago and it just never worked right so ultimately ended up going back. From turning on the machine and getting blank flashing screens periodically, to the individual apps freezing or not working, and dvd/blu-ray discs freezing while watching,...
