A great value


A great value for the price. Will make the switch to an Hi-Def player once the prices come down.

Nice upconversion. DVI support. Will read all tpes of formats

A possible problem with the power supply.I am currently stress testing the player to see if the power supply will fail. Running it 6 hrs per day for the last 3 weeks and so far it is holding

Great player, with one (fixable) flaw


I'm buying a couple more, one just for a backup or maybe an emergency gift.

Excellent picture quality, long filename support, nice looking menus and file listing displays, DVI output, upsampling, DivX support

As others have mentioned, there's a capacitor on the power supply that will fail. Others have pointed out the web pages for how to fix it. For me it died within 4 hours of use, but it's a quick and easy fix if you have a soldering iron. Usually the...

I hope this help someone!!!!!!!!!!


Great buy and cheap. Maybe the cap will go later or maybe not, but for now I will just enjoy movies on my Vizio Bravo D1 DVD Player. Thanks Newegg you are the greatest.

Player is great once you make a small repair. Great picture and no skipping

After reading all the fixes and reviews, you are not going to beleive this. All I did was replace the IDE cable with a new one. Movies (Mainly DVD-R+) now play that wouldn't play before

This player require a $1.59 fix!!


Bravo D1 owner's should all review the discussion at

The BEST 1:1 pixel-mapped SD DVD image available on any player at any price. Period. BUT ... (see cons) ; People who say differently have not done their research

There is a $1.59 capacitor in the power supply that WILL fail and cause the symptoms some of the reviewers here have mentioned. Go to for instructions on how to change the capacitor ; BTW, the remote is lousy but for this...

You might be able to install another ide drive but it will make more noise than the original.

Great Product


Basicly I looked high and low for a cheap player with DVI output and HD Upconversion and I finally found this one. It's a great product and I am very satisfied with my puchase. 1080i is incredibly clear, major difference from 480p. I have an RCA 52"...

1.DVI Output ; 2.Price ; 3.Picture Quality

1.Sometimes I get no picture and have to turn the player off and then on ; 2. Menu is terrible ; 3. Lack of DVI or Componet cables

Decent dvd player


The "uncommon" video formats like xvid will not play. It says it plays DIVX and it plays ONLY DIVX, along with the regular formats (DVD, etc...)

It plays DVD's and many different brands of CD-R's and recordable DVD's

Does not play xvid

What kind of converter did you you to get it to work with a D-Sub monitor only and how do you turn off macrovision

Picture is amazing. Sounds great and plays all sorts of divx files

VIZIO Bravo D1 DVD Player with DVI


I could not buy a nicer unit up here in Wis.for that price and loaded with these disk options.Progressive scan a plus real jump from my Toshiba with no features. GREAT BUY for the money :}

Reads everyone of my disk and than some. Fits nicely with my 42 plasma ; Very nice DEAL

UPS shipping My bad I usally pay extra for FEDEX well worth the couple extra $$. Have to setup when inserting DVD to play (movies)gives you instructions on what format DVD (480 720 1080 )will play in

VIZIO Bravo D1 DVD Player with DVI


Well this player has very good video quality through the dvi and and can convert the signal to a vga with an adapter, just get rid of macrovision. This player is worth it for the price. 1080i is the way to go

The loader for this player (optical drive) died after three days of using it so i just ripped open the player and replaced it with a samsung drive. Very easy to do its just like replacing an optical drive
