"Great Blu-Ray player with nice internet capability!"4.5 starson by rreichar
Pros: Beautiful Blu-Ray with quick start. Easy to set up. WiFi works great. Lots of internet media options. Netflix streams in HD now that I got a new 802.11n router. Quality was poor with 802.11g router. The menus are simple and easy to navigate.
Cons: Seems a little touchy about the router you use. Had I not had to chase an X-Box live issue I would not have solved the Netflix issue.
Summary: A great Blu-Ray player with excellent WiFi media streaming. I paid $198 for this item and could not be happier with the end result. I was initially very disappointed with the poor quality of Netflix streaming. My son just got a new X-Box 360 and was having issues with the wireless. I finally bought a new router (Belkin Dual Band 802.11n) and that solved both the X-Box Live issues and the Netflix issue. As I write this I am watching "Taxi Driver" in beautiful HD streaming on a 73" screen. I tried to watch it with the old router and it was unwatchable. The user interface is easy enough and all of the setup was simple. My Mitsubishi TV recognized the BR player and programmed the remote automatically so I have not used the Sony remote since the initial setup. Do not let the poor Netflix reviews scare you. You just need to get your wireless network up to snuff. I checked download speeds before and after the router change and it was 6.75mps with both routers. However both the BDP-570 and the X-Box work much better now. I did do a firmware update out of the box and another a couple of days later. That was a painless process over WiFi. It is possible that the second firmware update fixed the Netflix issue. I did the update after setting up the new router but prior to trying Netflix with it. This is a nice little piece of technology that works very well. I would recommend it to anyone.
