The first page of the review read like a dream :(. I couldn't believe the sudden sense of disappointment on Page3. And the fact the unit has "1080p" boasted on the top just makes it worse. It lied to us! How could it do that?! *sob*

@betelgeus: Most of the H.264 encoded Bluray discs that I watch seem to have an average bitrate around 19 Mbps and I frequently see them exceed 30 Mbps for rapidly changing scenes. Maximum bitrates are described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B....





However, I'm not sure many people have the disk space to rip all their Bluray discs at full bitrate so they would probably transcode them to something a lot lower and which the VMP30 could handle easily. Those that can afford the disk space are probably not in the market for a £60 media renderer.

This is a terrible product It will play something one minute and then refuse the next Totally crashes which means you have to get up and reset. The remote will not work not worth the money Viewsonic should be ashamed!!!!!! Mine is getting returned today would rather play my movies on pc DO NOT BUY !!!!!!!!!

As already said, it's a lemon, bought mine for under thirty pounds and the remote didn't work, the replacement started playing some hd files and would then stop and move onto the next and would then do the same after a minute or two, files encoded at 720p 5mbps, nowhere near the suggested limit. Better to cough up the dosh and buy a good quality product.
