6 Times the Picture Data on DVDs

See everything your HDTV can show you. Blu-ray Disc's Full HD 1080p resolution produces over 2 million pixels per frame to produce a razor-sharp picture with unmatched depth and clarity that takes full advantage of the capabilities of today's 1080p HDTVs. That's six times the picture data contained on DVDs, which are encoded at only 480p.

24p True Cinema Video Output

Most Hollywood movies are shot at 24 frames per second, and Blu-ray Disc movies are mastered at 24 frame per second, so it is only fitting that Blu-ray Disc players can output your films at 1080/24p for a true film-like experience at home. Blu-ray disc players can also output at 1080/60p for more traditional HDTV sets on the market. Either way, you covered for the best picture possible in Full 1080p.

Backwards compatible and Upscaling

All existing Blu-ray Disc players will play your standard DVD collection without a problem. And with built-in 1080p video upscaling, they'll look even better.

This VIZIO Blu-ray player is compatible with Dolby TrueHD, Dolby's next-generation lossless technology developed for high-definition disc-based media. Dolby TrueHD delivers tantalizing sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, unlocking the true high-definition entertainment experience on next-generation discs. When coupled with high-definition video, Dolby TrueHD offers an unprecedented home theater experience that lets you enjoy sound as stunning as the high-definition picture.

  • Delivers studio-master-quality sound that unlocks the true high-definition entertainment experience on next-generation discs
  • Offers more discrete channels than ever before for impeccable surround sound

I bought one of this when they first came out early last fall from a large discount store. I was really impressed as I unboxed it - it looked very nice and had a nice "hefty" feel to the case (unlike so many other players). I hooked it up to a 37" Vizio 1080p TV. The Blu-Ray quality was decent - nothing to write home about though. While it was better than an upconverted DVD of course, it didn't have the crispness to the image that I was expecting. I ran about three recent movies through it and all had the same result - good enough, but not great. Then I tried upconverting standard DVDs. That's where it really fell down. The image quality was much worse than my upconverting DVD player. No depth, fuzzy, stuttering in fast motion. Other disappointments were the weak sound quality with both DVDs and Blu-Rays and a very short range for the remote. I literally had to be in front of the player to activate it. The DVD player or TV had no issue with the same angle. All in all a weak effort from Vizio (and it went back).

Black Friday I grabbed a Toshiba BDX-2000 from Amazon. It has more or less the same specs as the Vizio but its performance is like night and day better. Sharper Blu-Ray, better upconverting (still not as good as my DVD player though), much better sound and greater remote range. I thought maybe I was being too harsh on the Vizio, but after having the Tosh for a few weeks I can see that I wasn't.

Purchased this unit as my first BluRay player after waiting more than 2 years to purchase one due to the BluRay/HD battle and general lack of stability in the hardware and playback quality of existing units. I'll keep this short. The VBR100 has performed flawlessly for me. I've watched 6 BluRay movies thus far, including Australia and a concert video by the band Rush (Snakes & Arrows - MUST HAVE for you Rush fans!). No problems whatsover. The 6 BluRay discs I've tried all loaded up in less than a minute. I've seen other units over the years take 2-3 minutes, which is just ridiculous. Like the prior reviewer, I actually bought mine at WalMart too since it was cheaper than Amazon's price. I've since done a firmware upgrade, which was a piece of cake. Highly recommended!

If you are a hardware manufacturer that wants to capture market share based on pricing you have to take advantage of your own lower pricing while you can because your competition normally won't want to let you keep that advantage very long. Eventually those competitors will drop their pricing into the same area you've targetted and that competitive advantage will be gone as customers opt to up sell themselves on competing products with better features, better reputations, etc.

Such is the problem that would seem to be facing Vizio with their 'entry level' VBR100 Blu-ray player. Well, that problem and a few others as well. Read on for a run-down of my thoughts about the player (at least the thoughts that I had at the time I wrote this review, early October 2009).

First, I'll about guarantee that these players will drop in price, just like their competition, over the not so distant future. For one, a price drop is guaranteed since I just bought myself one of these players a few weeks ago. No, sorry, not purchased through this particular web site, as a local mart that is loaded (wall to Wal) had the best pricing for the product and offered instant gratification if I wanted to pick up the product in store. As I did want the product in hand asap, I opted to buy in store rather than mail order, so I was able to take the device home the same day and start setting it up.

Setup was fairly simple, but I would note that the box doesn't have an HDMI cable in it, nor does it have a Component video cable. Nope, there was a composite video cable (Yellow connector with the Red and White audio cables tied in) but if that cable is used the video output quality suffers as NO upscaling is done unless the connection is HDMI or Component.

This is a great product, however make sure your firmware is up to date. I ran into a few problems with my newest blurays.

In preparing to buy a Bluray player, I read literally thousands of reviews, and what I learned is this: 1)EVERY manufacturer/model in the new lower price range has nay-sayers for various reasons 2)the number of reviews for each player I researched that indicated that they had to return the unit led me to want to purchase one nearby so I wouldn't have to drive far and/or ship it for repair/exchange 3)many players are very slow to load and/or noisy operating 4)many players' reviews indicated horror stories involving firmware updates 5)there are many different permutations of ancilliary functions (connecting to internet, receiving netflix, etc.) which I have absolutely no interest in, but if you are DO YOUR RESEARCH! I was interested in a player that did a great job upgrading my voluminous dvd collection, played efficiently, and plays European/PAL format dvds (which I have a few of). Walmart was THE only place in my area that had a selection of more than one player (and their prices were almost HALF of what privately-owned stores were charging). Out of all the players WM had connected to test, ONLY the Vizio played my test PAL dvd (a Marduk concert, much to the great chagrin of WM's staff and clientele!). I also got the unit for $20 less due to an old advertising sign that was still up at the display. As other reviews have stated, the set up is incredibly simple. I was happy that the unit, like my in-store test, loaded AS QUICKLY AS MY PAST DVD PLAYERS. The unit iself looks real space-age cool, with a touchscreen functionality that is lit when power is on, and totally black when off (except for the Vizio logo which glows orange when unit is off, and white when on).Read more ›
