I bought one of these VMP75’s and had to return it b/c I could never get it to see my network shares. I had read reviews indicating it might be a problem but figured I could figure it out since I hack these things all the time. I spend several hours even sniffing the wire to try and figure out what was going on. Their tech support is clueless and not any help. Be where. On a positive note Buy.com refunded my money and paid for shipping it back. I buy lots of stuff from Buy.com, guess a dud once in awhile is expected.

-A customer quote

Pros: - Great price through Buy.com - Excellent streaming of NetFlix movies - USB supports a USB hub so you can hook-up a keyboard, mouse and a USB drive Cons: - Network connectivity is non-existent under Windows XP - you cannot connect to the MP3s or Images or Videos that are stored on your computer. It just doesn't work (as of this writing). - Web Browsing is very difficult unless you hook up a USB wirless mouse & keyboard (which works well). Even with a mouse & keyboard, browsing is painfully slow and the browser lacks support for FLASH videos and other advanced browser features. - YouTube app is awful - UPnP does not work with Windows XP - Adding movies/programs to your NetFlix que can't be done from the unit - you must access NetFlix from a computer to add programming. Conclusion: If all you want is an inexpensive easy wasy to add NetFlix to your TV, then this could be a good solution. If you want to be able to access the music, photos and videos on your computer, forget it. Don't expect any of the other built in apps to satisfy your desire for connectivity and/or network streaming.
