The UK version of the VMP75. Uses the Sigma 8654 chipset and is close in specification to the WDTV Live.
The hardware is very capable. The only HD-Audio standard missing is TrueHD passthrough and the chipset has the power to play everything. The Viewsonic players attempt to distinguish themselves in the range of on-demand content available. This UK version is advertised as being capable of BBC iPlayer (after a future firmware update).
The Viewsonic VMP74 is a well rounded player but is priced inexplicably high. The US version is half the price despite being identical.

NOt really priced competitively @ £130 when compared to say £85 for the WDTV. If the use of the bbC iplayer is worth the extra money, and you are sure it WILL arrive on this platform, and wont arrive on others. It would be nice to have one box, including the hard disk and power supply

Fair point. We hadn't updated the price since it launched in the UK. At twice the price of the VMP75 us Brits are not getting a great deal.
