The below is found on the Nixeus thread (differences between the Fusion HD and the VMP75). I own both. The feature set is nearly identical. If you want internal hard drive with a mainstream file format FAT, NTFS then in my case I did pay the extra for the Fusion knowing that at anytime I can drop in a 2TB and rather than expand my network capacity with another NAS I can get an extra 2TB on the network for say the extra $60.00 from what the Fusion costs over the VMP75. I also get the impression that the potential for future YAMJ and other niceties are possible with the Fusion as referenced on these forums where the VMP75 is pretty much closed. If someone knows to the contrary please share.
For those of you researching this product and want to know more about it here are a few useful links - I will update these as the thread develops and links get added.
For the sake of Full disclosure, I do not work for Nixeus or any of it's re-sellers.Anyone who is unsure of this , can check my previous posts (600+) - I have been into the Mediaplayer scene for the last 3+ years , and have a great interest in new and exciting players that come out.

The Viewsonic VMP75 and the Nixeus Fusion Hd are from the same stable , basically the Viewsonic VMP75 is a "cut down" version of the Nixeus Fusion.
Here is a list of functions and features that the Viewsonic VMP75 DOES NOT have , but the Nixeus Fusion DOES:
TWO years fully warranty.
Internet web browser (Flash to be supported soon)
Wireless N Dongle included.
The Ability to accecpt a INTERNAL 3.5" hard disk (Which then works as a NAS).
USB Slave support/port to the above.
Support for "Sort by Date" - at this time, only single files are sorted by date - This is a VERY useful feature if you have a download directory with 100's of un-sorted files in it.It allows instant access to the most recent file.I know of no other media player that has this feature.
Ref the above feature , you do not have to reformat your hard drive to obtain the above - on some players you do , making it hard to transfer a hard disk loaded with content to a new player).
Date sort feature (coming soon , and I know of no other player that has this).
Weather display on front page.
US Based support, No jobs overseas - warms the cockels of your heart.
