ViewSonic NexTV VMP75 Review

 

Given that ViewSonic's core business revolves around computer monitors and business-oriented video projectors, we weren't expecting all that much when we unboxed their NexTV VMP75 media streamer. Wow, did we ever underestimate.

ViewSonic's VMP75 comes with a fabulous remote, but if it doesn't float your boat, you can plug in a USB keyboard

ViewSonic NexTV VMP75

 

Super small, lightweight ; Lots of great-sounding radio options ; Stellar Netflix playback ; True 1080p quality ; Insanely easy setup

No on-screen confirmation of commands ; Temperamental remote ; Could be $50 cheaper ; Horrible YouTube Interface ; No built-in Wi-Fi

ViewSonic’s NexTV VMP75 streams Netflix, Flickr and media from your PC directly to your TV through a tiny, unobtrusive box.

Not Bad, Could Be Better

 

I took my time reading network player reviews and specs online, and on NewEgg, for several weeks. I eventually settled on the VMP75. Keyword there; I -settled- on it. There are no perfect black boxes that offer proper clients for Hulu -and- Netflix in...

Supports Netflix category browsing based on "what you would like" as well as instant queue. Plays ISOs, MP4 and MPG. HDMI support. DVD ISO backups play just as if on a DVD player. Wifi works fine using the suggested Zonet wifi USB adapter. Much cheaper...

Could support a couple more mainstream media formats. Won't play Windows AVI and that's just odd to me considering most content on Windows is encoded into AVI when it's initially ripped or recorded. The CPU is annoyingly slow for the money. It takes a...

Avoid Viewsonic at All Cost

 

Their response was to write back ANOTHER week later, with a 3-step solution for fixing my "Netflix problem." The solution had no bearing at all on the problem I had described 3 times over 3 weeks. Now I know where all those IT blockheads I've fired...

Netflix works fine. On the other hand, a cheaper, better Roku box will do that

Viewsonic's technical support is the worst I've ever encountered in 30 years of IT. The until would SEE every computer on my network, see the proper folder, but when told to list media, would invariably return "Network Connection Failed." I do networks...

When It Works

Junk

 

None

These sorts of devices (consumer electronics) generally either work well, forever, or have some sort of hardware or software issue. If you're lucky and the company support their product then software issues can be fixed. Hardware issues through ... you...

RMA twice so far

 

Very small footprint. It came with a HDMI cable. Easy setup. WiFi connect was easy

RMA'd the thing twice already. 1st one died after a day. 2nd one was DOA. Waiting on 3rd. No refund policy, only replacement where I bought it. Very hard to navigate the internet with only the remote. No place to enter user ID/Password for NAS server
