Sigma chip which is the oldest chip for media players, I have a popcorn hour A110 and that was £250 when i bought it and it takes ages to come on compared to my AcRyan playonHD mini and this player has a bad Rep, its been cheaper than this, Scan where selling it not so long back for less. This is cold cold cold.

guys this media player should be avoided at all costs. i've had one and to say that they are 'glitchey' is an understatement! sent mine back after a particularly infuriating week of trying to get the damned thing to function properly. the wdtv live, ac ryan playon or even the cheapy sumvision micro 2 are all far superior players IMO. hope this helps someone!


according to their website, … according to their website, yes.http://www.viewsoniceurope.com/uk/products/mediaplayer/specs.php?n=VMP73


I bought recently player himedia hd600b and can tell that it is fantastic choice, plays everything, great menu and super fast to response, superbuilt quality, highly recommended
