Really impressed for the price - one year later....NOT SO MUCH!

Summary: After some research I decided on this model mainly due to the price and options available. After purchasing this BD I decided to rejoin Netflix to check out that feature as well as the radio and video services provided.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas 2009. I decided on this blu-ray model for a few reasons: 1) Capable of streaming not only Netflix, but also Amazon Unbox purchases and rentals, YouTube, and Slacker Radio 2) Video upscaling 3) Sleek design 4) Mostly good reviews on Amazon, minus the few...
Summary: Reason for this purchase was to watch Netflix movies by pulling stuff from the "Netflix instant movie que". Does a great job on that end. Its like watching a dvd. I haven't tested a blue-ray dvd yet.
Summary: I would have given this 5 stars, but somehow I got the setup wrong and couldn't see a picture when playing blu-ray discs. Turns out there is a setting for 1080p/24 for true 24 fps that was on, but my television doesn't support it.
Summary: I wanted a Blu-ray player for two main reasons, 1) to watch Netflix on my TV, and 2) to watch Star Trek: The Original Series (Enhanced) on Blu-ray. I returned an LG BD 390 because a stupid icon kept popping up every time an "alternate angle"/enhanced scene appeared during an episode.
