Vizio Vbr200w Blu-ray Player

Shopping-and-Product-Reviews The VBR200W is the new Blu-ray Player from Vizio. It is similar to Vizio’s previous two Blu-ray Players, but they have added some extra features. Mainly, Vizio’s Internet Apps and Wi-Fi capabilities. You are now able to stream online movies from Vulu or Netflix with a wireless connection. The VBR200W has a slightly slim design, measuring 2.4 inches in height. The controls are located on the front of the player. All controls are touch sensitive. The silver disc tray is located in the middle front of the player. The front has a glossy black finish, giving the over all design a very high tech look. All input and output connections are located on the rear of the Blu-ray Player. Video Quality: The VBR200W provides Full HD 1080p when playing back a Blu-ray disc. It up-scales standard DVDs to near High Definition levels. There are three options to connect the video, they are: HDMI(ver. 1.3), .ponent and .posite outputs. A HDMI connection will give you the best video output when playing back Blu-ray and DVD discs. Audio Quality: The VBR200W provides 7.1 multi-channel surround sound via HTMI. Other audio connections are analog (2.0ch), Digital Optical/Coaxial outputs. It has audio internal decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Unfortunately, there are no 7.1 analog outputs. So an audio/video receiver that has a HDMI input is needed to decode the latest High-Resolution Audio formats that are on the Blu-ray movie disc. Vizio’s VBR200W player has Internet Apps where you can access online streaming content such as movies, music, news and weather. Some online services you can use are VUDU, Netflix, Pandora Internet Radio, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Associated Press and The New York Times. An internet connect is required to take advantage of online streaming. You can connect through the Ethernet Port or you can setup a wireless connection. The player .es with a 802.11n wireless built-in, so connecting to your Home Network should be easy.(802.11n is .patible with 802.11b and 802.11g wireless networks. More details can be found in the Quick Start Guide and Owner’s Manual). Unfortunately, connecting to your Home Network does not mean you can stream video or music files from you .puter to the Blu-ray Player. It is not DLNA .pliant. (Depending on your Home Network environment, a wired connection is usually the most reliable, especially when streaming movies.) You can, however access BD-Live content when connected to the internet. Many Blu-ray Discs will have content or interactive features you can download or participate in. BD-Live content will include such things as updated movie trailers, deleted scenes, documentaries, trivia games, chat rooms and live .mentary. There is no internal memory in this Vizio player, therefore you will be required to insert an external memory storage device to access BD-Live content. A 1GB Flash Drive inserted into the USB Port should be sufficient. THE PROS: The Vizio VBR200W has very good video and audio qaulity. You get Full 1080p playback on Blu-ray disc via HDMI. It has internal audio decoding for DTS-HD and Dolby Digital TrueHD. It has built-in Wi-Fi and access to online streaming services such as VUDU, Netflix, Pandora Internet Radio, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Associated Press and The New York Times. THE CONS: Does not have a Quick Start Mode. Does not have DLNA capabilities. Meaning you can not connect to your Home Network and stream video or music files from your .puter. THE FINAL WORD: The Vizio VBR200W offers you a lot of features at a very reasonable price (MSRP is $199.99). The VBR200W has very good audio and video quality, as well as built-in Wi-Fi and online streaming services. Most users find the setup and menu options extremely easy to navigate. — Price you should look for when purchasing — Under $200.00 相关的主题文章:
