We just got our hands on the new Vizio VBR100 Blu-ray player! The player is only available at Wal-Mart right now, and is priced at $178.00. We decided to debut the VBR100 in our new Unboxing Video Series.

This is our first video, so please give us any feedback you have (we’re working on getting an external Mic).

Here is a link to the video if your reader doesn’t allow embedded flash videos: Vizio VBR100 Unboxing

    You inferred that VIZIO is a Chinese company when you discussed the manual. VIZIO is a US company based in Irvine, CA.

    Jim, yes you are correct, but what reference design is the player based on? The player is not manufactured in the US, are the Vizio engineers based in the US?

    @Tyler Pruitt – Well, I think Vizio in US mainly comprises of customer support. They probably contract all their jobs to Taiwanese companies, who do the design, then the Taiwanese companies do their manufacturing in their Chinese factories.

    yes all are based in the US

    Vizio is designed and manufactured in China. They have a front/face company just like Apex, Cyberhome, and all the other junk brands that pop up. And just like those they got caught not paying their royalties which sent most of those companies to the gutter.

    Theyre lying when they say theyre American. The money behind them, and the product are 100% Chinese.

    Okay, so I’m watching the video. Tech issues:
    First, yes, you need a clip on mic or a mic to place on the table. Look at Blue Microphones website. And you need to adjust the lighting. There’s too much glare bouncing off the announcers face.
    Second, my feeling is that you should have opened the box first off-camera, put it back together, then recorded it. There’s too much time wasted on opening the pking,
    And I understand the steps you took in unboxing it but, d@mn! I want to see the machine- I want to see a front closeup of the BR and the back of it. I don’t want to see the announcer opening the 4 pg insert and reading it to us. Show us a close up of the insert!
    I don’t want to sound too harsh, I like what you’re trying to accomplish here. I’m going to watch the rest of the video now and if I’m up to it, I’ll comment again.

    I agree with the other person. the box should have been opened off screen as too much time is wasted unboxing it on camera. close ups of the remote and connections and also the front of the player would be nice and considering the touch screen type buttoons you might also want to power it up so we can see them
