When I was offered the chance to check out the new ViewSonic WMA100 Media adapter, I looked forward to trying it out. I've been playing around with some networked audio devices, but had not had a chance to try out a device designed to handle video and still images in addition to audio. Since the size of my digital video and picture collection dwarfs the size of my audio collection, I thought this little network device might help me get a handle on it or at least give me an easy way to navigate and enjoy my growing collection.
