I'm looking to get a new blu ray player that has built in wifi for streaming netflex. Nothing very expensive, under $200 would be sweet.

I think my Panny Bluray from costco does all of that, of course, I don't use those features. smile can't remember the model, but it was like $150 I believe about a year ago..

I have a Panasonic BD60 but it is not capable of steaming Netfix as far as I can tell. I was just looking at the LG BD570, it looks promising.

Check out the Sammy Bd-P3600. I have it and it works flawlessly on wireless, streaming netflix, pandora and youtube (it also comes loaded with Blokckbuster software). I would also chekc out Insignia's offerings from Best Buy (they offer netflix, pandora nad CinemaNow). I have an Insignia player that performs exceedingly well, with fast load times and great picture/sound.

I've read good things about the Insignia's. I'll take a look at both.

I have the same player - and the same experience with it - as Adrien.

I read a ton of reviews and finally picked the LG-BD570.

Capn,

I've fallen behind in all this wireless and streaming technology. Tell me: Do you use the Sammy to wirelessly stream Netflix to your TV display? Does it do it in HD or just Standard Def? Do you get Dolby Digital 5.1 or just a stereo soundtrack?

Thanks,
Alan

Alan, not sure about the specific model in question but netflix streams are available in HD (up to 1080i) on many TV's, bluray players, etc. Currently, PS3 is the only device to allow streaming of movies in 1080p and in dolby digital surround sound, but the selection is pretty limited.

XBox is supposedly to offer Netflix in HD in the very near future last I heard. The Wii will also stream Netflix but with it you are limited to stereo and SD only.
