3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need. 3D viewing requires:

A Display
First, you'll need a 3D-ready display--whether it's a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have more processing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.
A Source
Your display may be ready for 3D playback, but you'll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.
3D Content
3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether it's a 3D broadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.
3D Glasses
For now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, others polarized "passive" glasses. You'll need one pair per viewer, and they'll have to be compatible with your display, whether they're the same brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.
HDMI Cable
To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.

If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite you to visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

Internet-Ready Television

Internet-Ready Television

Internet-ready TVs use your broadband connection to deliver dynamic content, whether it's streaming video from Netflix, new music from Pandora, or a quick glance at today's weather forecast.

Although there is overlap, each manufacturer offers a unique bundle of free or paid services, including streaming video and music, social networking apps, online photo galleries, news and financial updates, weather info, sports scores, and a variety of other smartphone-like applications.

Manufacturers continue to add new content to their offerings, keeping customers current through firmware updates, and making a bit of research a prudent step in your buying decision.

Learn more about Internet TVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at our Internet TV 101 customer center.

Customer Reviews

Probably just a bad unit but not worth the hassle.
I will never purchase anything from vizio again they do not stand behind their product and their customer support is a joke.
I have used the player for a number of 3D Blu ray movies and the quality has been just amazing.

My $350 Samsung BD player died and I was looking for a cheap alternative that can also play some apps like picasa, netflix, pandora etc. In my search I found Vizio model 122. I liked the features and the price tag but then VBR133 has 3D capability and that was very enticing, although I dont have a 3D tv yet.

Since Bluray has been in the market for a while my expectations from any player were high.

Criteria for a BDPlayer -
- Should load and play blurays quick and fast
- Video and Audio quality should be very good
- Must play apps like Netflix, Amazon, Picasa, BLockbuster, Pandora and more
- Must have a HDMI connection
- Remote should be easy to use and work from a good range (distance, left and righ angles)
- Must have ability to connect to internet (ethernet or wireless)
- Must have a USB port to plug in a flash drive
- Must play jpegs, audio and other video files

This player, from the outer looks, is simple and non-flattering. But once I powered it on it was only a matter of seconds that it was ready.

I have an ethernet-to-wireless adapter. Plugged the ethernet cable behind the BDplayer and within seconds it connected to Internet.

Firmware upgrades were automatic (it asks if you want to apply them) and they completed within 5 minutes. Very smooth operation.

The main menu for the player was very easy to navigate and setting were easy and self-explanatory.

I put in a Bluray and the disk loaded quickly (compared to a Samsung player I had earlier which was supposedly among the fastest to load disks). I played different blurays and all worked just fine. Very happy with this.

What blew my mind was the quality of the image rendered.

Due to the low price and other reviews I was a little hesitant to purchase, however the player has exceeded my expectations.

I have used the player for a number of 3D Blu ray movies and the quality has been just amazing. Well worth the price.

Update: 9/8/11

After several months Amazon VOD is now working.


I bought this to stream Vudu - Netflix and Amazon VOD. Really liked the individual buttons on the remote. But when it arrives it says Amazon Coming Soon? Sounds like Product Management had a Mental Margarita... Hope it shows up soon or it is going back.

Other than that, I like the unit.

Here is customer support answer to No Amazon VOD:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your recent inquiry with VIZIO. I would be more than happy to help you with your concern. Here at VIZIO we do offer best in class technical support.

Vizio identified a performance issue that we are actively working with Amazon directly to resolve prior to launching the application. The update to your player will be automatic as long as it is connected to your home network. There is not a set date of release. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you need any additional assistance feel free to contact VIZIO at 877-698-4946 or chat with us at [...]. Thanks and have a great day!

Ms. Raz Trejo

at first i was a little skeptical of the quality of vizio products because of price, however this is my 2nd blu ray device and i also now own a vizio 3d television. everyone is fantastic so far. i also own a sony bravia television and i consider the vizio television produces a better, clearer picture. also, vizio technical support when i was setting up these devices was great.

Purchased this even after reading all the negitive reviews,"mostly price driven." First I must say this is a great looking player. Size is a bit smaller than others on market :-) . As for the "glue" comments; mine had the cardboard but it was removed easily with no residue. Playback and load times are very acceptable. Didn't link to internet because new Vizio E3D420VX TV is wireless and presents same apps. Remote is straight forward, easily navigated and can also crontrol volume on Vizio sets. Quality is exceptional on playback and will be reviewing many of my movies. Bottom line great product excellent price would recommend to any frugal 3D consumer:-)

This easy to setup and user friendly Blu-Ray player is simply, SPECTACULAR! It brings the movie entertainment experience, to a whole new level! I absolutely LOVE, having 3D HDTV in my home. I paired this player with the Vizio Theater 3D LCD HDTV w/ Internet Apps, Model # E3D320VX.

Amazon Prime Instant Movies in HD, as well as many other Internet Apps, are 1 click away! The TV remote, which includes a keyboard, also operates the Blu-Ray Player and search functions. If you want the JOY and COMPLETE SATISFACTION, of the latest in New 3D Technology, you can't go wrong with this Vizio VBR133 3D Blu-Ray Player! I highly recommend it!

I had a Sony Blu-ray player but it suffered from frequent buffering of Netflix Online movies. I purchased this for the sole purpose of improving my Netflix streaming ability. It works flawlessly for Netflix streaming. We get no buffering when the Sony did it so much it was intolerable. But, the best part of this player is the wealth of options provided by the user interface with Netflix. It allows for browsing of Netflix online videos which are NOT in your instant que and it gives you many genres and sub genres to browse. It allows for rating the video as well. This is the best Netflix user interface that I have seen. I am very pleased with this product.
