Viewsonic VOT132 nettop review


You don't need booming sales figures to tell you that netbooks have taken over the world -- the mobile computing world, at least. Their screenless and battery-free brethren, however, have yet to find quite the same success. Nettops are great tiny...

Very nice design ; Small enough to mount behind most displays ; Solid HD performance

Relatively high cost ; Poor playback with some content ; Optical support is optional

ViewSonic VOT132


The VOT132 aims to put media and productivity computing in more places, not replace older, bigger PCs. ViewSonic bundles a mounting kit to snap the system onto a monitor's VESA mount, making it a zero-footprint PC. Alternatively, a stand comes...

No, this is definitely not for 3D gaming. But for productivity and local media, the VOT132 is a stylish, low-energy, space-saving alternative to conventional PCs.

Great little system for HTPC


Foxconn has a barebones version of this, but if you buy 2GB memory, 320g 5400rpm drive, and a copy of windows 7, it comes to about the same price. Overall, it's a good bedroom HTPC, I don't think it'll be a good productivity system.

The unit is small, VESA mounts for behind the TV, or in my case, mounting on the wall being a wall mounted TV. The fan gets noisy when playing HD videos, but it won't drown out your sound ; Viewsonic's image on here is pretty slim, the only added...

First thing you should do is open the case up, remove the heatsink and clean their thermal grease off with alcohol and swabs. Buy some Arctic 5 and apply that instead. I had issues of overheating that lead to the system constantly locking up. Once I...

Don't waste your time!


I bought this to be a simple media server for my large screen TV. Spent almost an entire day trying to get the wifi to work and loading programs and media. The wifi is so weak you need to be within 10 feet of your hub and on the third boot-up the unit...

Excellent Green Computer


I purchased this little nettop to act as a VNC server. To this end it has excelled remarkably. Most times I can't even tell I'm using a computer with an Atom processor. It is quick and does everything I need it too. The video and chipset is also a very...

Windows 7 crashed


Nice small unit. Price was reasonable but didn't get a chance to use all the features of the unit because windows 7 crashed on my on my second start up. Very disappointed

I needed a small, cheap computer to run a slideshop on a lobby flat screen. This was small enough to screw onto the back panel of the screen, and hide out of view. It didn't come with any OS to speak of, so had to purchase windows separately. Not...
