Summary: I do not have a wired Ethernet port near my home theater setup so I bought a TRENDnet TEW-430APB 54Mbps 802.11g Wireless Access Point form Newegg, this was a but cheaper than the Samsung wireless adaptor and works like a charm for me.
Pros: I bought this to watch Netflix downloaded movies, works great!
Summary: Bought it for Netflix streaming. Don't have High Def so can't comment on Blu ray performance. Standard DVD performance is good. Loads quickly and reasonably quiet. Netflix streams effortlessly once you set up your queue. Remote is light and feels cheap. Will also control most TV sets, but not mine.
Pros: Easy set up. Does what it says. Nice middle ground price.
Cons: Remote is lacking. Can't set up Netflix queue from player, must go to your computer.
Summary: I just got this player and was a little nervous because of all the bad reviews about the firmware freezing the unit. I ordered this unit on 02/01/2010 and when it arrived it came with the latest firmware and no problems to speak of as of yet.
Summary: If you are looking for a great quality player, this is it. The Netflix / Pandora / You Tube add-on viewers work great. I think the picture quality of Netflix on my XBOX360 looks a little sharper, but it was nice to see this player supports both standard and high-definition titles.
Pros: I have bought products from Newegg for close to a decade but did not buy it here,sorry New. I did get it at a local store in my area the weekend before Christmas for just under a hundred bucks. For that price, since it retailed in March for three hundred it cannot be beat. Here's what I know afte...
Pros: Works great. Plays BDs just fine with the firmware it shipped with and subsequent updates; clearly the person in the earlier review got a defective player. The Netflix and Pandora features are great -- quality on Netflix is very impressive.
Cons: Doesn't come with a wireless adapter, which isn't suprising given its relatively cheap cost. You can buy one, but for about the same price I just bought an Apple Airport Express and connected it to the Ethernet jack.
