  • Excerpt: Portable media players have become increasingly popular, especially with the Apple iPhone & iPad and the Zune HD, but the ViewSonic VPD400 MovieBook HD offers what those done: a cheap price and a multimedia options. The VPD400 allows you to connect it to a TV to display content, has a microSD expansion slot, and supports a whole bunch of media content.
  • Pros: Inexpensive and small, microSD expansion, TV video output
  • Cons: Difficult to use navigational buttons, Poor internal speakers

ViewSonic VPD400

16 December 2009
  • Summary: The ViewSonic VPD400 MovieBook HD has a wallet friendly price tag, but it omits a lot of features. While not everybody needs Wi-Fi or apps with their portable media player, a touchscreen is absolutely necessary on a device like this. The navigational buttons are frustrating to use, especially if you have a rather large media collection to scroll through.

Playlist ViewSonic VPD400 MovieBook HD

13 December 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) For people who want a portable media player but don’t want to break the bank, ViewSonic offers the VPD400 MovieBook HD . It’s more affordable than a $199 8GB iPod touch ( ), but you must be willing to make a few compromises. Unlike the iPod, the VPD400 MovieBook HD doesn’t have a touchscreen or Wi-Fi, and its design isn’t the slickest. In appearance, the VPD400 is pretty minimalist.
  • Pros: Decent audio and video file support, Appealing price
  • Cons: No touchscreen, Difficult to navigate, Underwhelming design, No AAC support, Weak internal speaker, Missing features
