    We have a Sony BDP-S350 and a Sony BDP-S780. Both work but we don't do much streaming.

    I have a Sammy c5500 that is great. I have a LG-LHB335 Home Theater sys that does great. I have a Toshbia that I wished someone else had. 2nd one from factory. Comes up with new quirks all the time. My latest streamer is the Roku2XS which is great. It is a shame that we have to buy different ones to get all the services. Maybe that will change over time. I'm hoping I have bought my last streamer for a while.

    Another vote for the LG BD550-hardwired in my case.

    I have a panny bdt-110 and now an lg bd670 - the panny is decent - the mlb app was especially nice. Netflix did ok, as long as my internet connection was humming. Cant comment on the lg yet - just got it set up a few days ago. Both are hardwired.

    oh.. forgot the panasonic 55gt30.. it streams as well.. same content and quality as the panny blu ray

    I use a launch PS3 for the bedroom and a slim PS3 for the main living room. I "had" to buy the slim because the launch unit started overheating when playing newer games but played BD perfectly fine. Not sure what the sea was, but the kids didn't seem to mind. :)

    We definitely like using the PS3's for Netflix and Hulu, but kind of wish they have Amazon Streaming Video as well that way I can stop trying to talk myself into a Roku. :)

    Gotta love the Sammy C5500! Best BD player I've tried so far. Amazingly good upscaling of NetFlix content. One of the things I've learned to do is never buy a Toshiba "anything".

    I have a Sony BDP-BX18 that will do Netflix and Amazon as well as some other things. I honestly have only tried using it for YouTube a little, though because I don't have a Netflix account. My father has had Netflix and now has Amazon Prime, so we could watch Prime on the Blu-ray player... but he usually prefers to just do that on his iPad. One of these days we need to check it out and see how it works though... but I mostly bought it for a cheap Blu-ray player since my old Samsung hasn't seen an update in a couple of years and doesn't play some of the newer movies.

    Samsung C5500. It does a good job streaming Netflix and VUDU. It also has some apps and does stream files from my computer. I am trying to come up with a device to stream RFD-TV live from my computer to tv because it is 720p HD and DTV does not do that channel in HD. Have not found that device or software yet. Just trying to expand IPTV. I do have Roku which is a great device for streaming.

    I have a Memorex MVBD2535, a Sony BDP-s370, and a Sony BDP-s470. They're old but I keep them busy and they work fine.

    Fat 40Gig PS3 and a Toshiba BDK33KU. The Toshiba player has the standard apps (Netflix, VUDU, etc) and media share.

    LG BP 620 and Roku 2XD. They both do a good job of streaming as long as my crappy Windstream DSL that's supposed to be 3mps stays about 1.5 mps. I got the Roku wired because it's in my bedroom and close to my router and my LG is wireless in the livingroom it works fine either way.
