*** Please note latest Update adds Amazon Video! ***

I picked this player up for an awesome price a few days ago and have been trying everything out.
The pros:
Wireless N: Works great with NETGEAR N750 450 Mbps Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR4000. No stutter via wireless streaming in HD with a good Wireless N router and good High Speed internet connection. Supports the "wireless authentication" button on the front of the router so setup to the wireless is super easy. (The Blu-Ray player will tell you when to hit the button on the router to auto authenticate you)

DVD and Blu-ray playback is quick and responsive and Blu-Rays load fast. No stutter in playback that I've seen. I have mostly DVDs so it was important that this does the DVDs justice as well. It does apparently upscale and does it beautifully.

The remote is a really intelligent design with keyboard on one side and Blu-ray/App controller remote on the other with specialty buttons for several of the "Apps". There is a centered V button to take you back to the home menu if you get lost. The remote is not back-lit and is infrared with one eye on the top vertical and one eye on the top horizontal (when you're using the keyboard) which by nature requires line-of-sight to the player. Keep your finger off the top edge when using the keyboard and you shouldn't have any issues.

Netflix works great and the keyboard really helps on those searches! Yes!

Vudu Works good and it comes with $5.99 movie credit that you don't even have to sign up for to try! An email address is all it asks for.

I bought a VIZIO HD TV from a local store then a VIZIO VBR 122 Blu-ray DVD Player from Amazon. I connected the player to the TV with my "latest and greatest" Amazon Basic HDMI cables. I was not using the internet features. I quickly noticed that when a DVD (Blu-ray or Regular) was loaded, sometimes I did not get sound but I always had video. I couldn't see anything to troubleshoot but switched between three different HDMI cables that I had. No help. I called the VIZIO toll free tech support number and they said to turn the player off, unplug it, pull the HDMI cable out that goes into the unit, wait 10-15 seconds, then reconnect. This helped once but then I got no sound again and again. Sometimes VIZIO's troubleshooting sequence worked, sometimes not. This is no way to operate such a simple device. I notifed Amazon and got a replacement, no problem. The replacement unit does the same thing so I sent it back today for refund. Again, no problem on Amazon's end. I noticed that both units were manufactured in March 2011. Reading the reviews, it appears some units are working great and others are not. I even saw some negative reviews regarding a "no sound" issue just like me. I think there must be a very bad manufacturing lot out there of these units.

This is a fantastic Blu-ray player, especially when you factor in the price. It's the cheapest blu-ray that i could find with built-in WiFi, which is why i chose to get it. Netflix works brilliantly (i've already watched the first XMen movie on it) and the other apps work well. The one downer, and why i was going to rate it 4.5 stars but it would not allow me: Amazon instant video is not available yet. That is unfortunate, as the fact that the remote has an Amazon button on it made me certain it would work out of the box immediately. Alas, it does not.

ALSO, it must be mentioned: THIS BLU-RAY PLAYER COMES WITH NO CORD TO CONNECT IT TO A TV. It only has an HDMI port for connecting to TVs. This was not a problem for me, as i had an HDMI cord that i hadn't been using. However, if you do not have an HDMI cord, you will need to get one. You can get an AmazonBasics version right here in this very store for as little as $7 or so.

So, the cons: no Amazon Instant video, and no cord to connect it to TV. However, I still gave this a 5-star because A: i knew it didn't come with an HDMI cord, and i was ready for that, and B: the Amazon instant video wasn't that big a blow to me, since i do have Netflix.

Speaking of Netflix (and the other apps) they work beautifully. I've used Netflix and Vudu so far, and they worked very well. Also, the unique remote has to be mentioned. It is a standard blu-ray player remote on one side (with buttons specifically for Vudu, Netflix, and Amazon) but contains a full QWERTY keyboard on the back. Makes it nice and easy to search for movies on Vudu and Netflix.

In short, if you are looking for a cheap and easy to use Wifi-equipped Blu-ray player, this is absolutely the one to go for.

I am really impressed with the Vizio VBR122 Blu-ray player. For the price, it has a nice feature set. The best points:

- Very nice remote with a QWERTY keyboard on the back for easy input.
- Easy system update over the built-in wireless connection
- Brainless setup - just power and HDMI cable
- Intuitive menu that can be used without reading instructions (which are minimal to begin with)
- Compact design with a small foot print
- Pretty quick boot up
- Lots of Internet features
- Netflix works great - even over the wireless connection
- Communicates with my Onkyo receiver to change to Blu-ray when powered on
- Smooth front (except for the disc tray) so doesn't collect dust on any buttons

Vizio saved some production cost on the player by making the connections on the back minimal - one HDMI connection. Also, as of the date of this review, Amazon streaming was not yet available but "coming soon". The suggestion for streaming high definition video over VUDU and Blockbuster is to use a CAT 5 connection, which I have done since my wireless is still G and not N. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the player. Don't forget to pick up an AmazonBasics HDMI cable while your ordering - also great quality and price.
