Conclusion: The BDP-N460 gets a lot of things right but it's not the slam dunk I was hoping for from Sony. Speedy boot-up and shutdown times are a huge plus and I was largely impressed with the unit's internet streaming capabilities. However, the unit's lack of onboard memory and its recessed, inconvenient USB port feels like poke in the eye. Not helping things are the chintzy front panel buttons and a mediocre, non-backlit remote.
Pros: Fast boot and shutdown times; blazing fast disc load times, Robust internet streaming capabilities - including Netflix & Amazon, Improved Netflix Watch Instantly queue browsing
Cons: No onboard memory for BD-LIVE, Recessed USB port out back is destined to annoy, Video menu comingles disc playback with Internet video channels, Lacks multi-channel analog outputs
