Buy Vizio products provided you never need customer support
11 April 2013
Summary: I purchased the Vizio VBR231 Disc Player (MP3/CD/DVD/Blu-Ray) some time ago. I have no complaints about how it works (when it works). It appears Vizio has abandoned all customer support for this product (and other products?). Once the model is no longer sold, forget about firmware upgrades, etc.
Needs firmware update - not playing audio on some blu ray discs
Narrow feet, Amazon
23 June 2012
Summary: This device was working well until I played a new BluRay just released. It played the audio on the previews and even the introductory music. The audio for the movie however does not work. I asked for a replacement from Netflix and it does the same.
Summary: I have had this player for about a year. I only played a couple of blu-ray disks on it. It was fine for that. I set up wireless on it and used Netflix until Netflix raised their prices so I dropped them I bought amazon prime and decided to update the firmware to see if they added it to the player.
Summary: We have a Vizio TV, which is what made us look at the Vizio Blu-Ray Players. I'm so happy we did! We've only had the player for 3 days, but we're already hooked! The picture and sound are amazing!
Summary: I received a Vizio VBR231 as a gift. The basic connection process was okay, though it did want to re-connect to the network (slowly) every time it was powered up. However, it would often have problems with Netflix and Pandora was essentially unusable with it.
Summary: Do Not Buy this Model. The remote control is hard to operate and the touch buttons are unresponsive. I used mine to play blu rays and stream Netflix videos, and it worked fine until I updated the firmware after it started playing Netflix videos sporadically.
Summary: My Vizio Blu-Ray player displayed a message that I needed to update my firmware. After following the instructions on the screen I now get no picture and the DVD won't eject. Vizio firmware update rendered my Blu-Ray player useless.
