    BD 85K Panasonic Blu-Ray Player w/Streaming. Blu-Ray is excellent, streaming is so so.

    It really is about provider which is Panasonic Vieracast which has a slow network. It is slow on Netflix, but it does have Youtube (we know most people don't want it, but we do) which is rare.

    I have a Samsung BD-P2500. It streams netflix well, but doesn't do much else.

    I have a Samsung BD-C6900 that does Internet streaming very well... local streaming, not so well.

    I also have a PS3, which I use primarily as a BluRay player.

    I've got two Panny BD65s, two Samsung 5500s and I'm waiting for a new Panny BD110. Of the four I have active the Sammy 5500s are far better at streaming NF than the Pannys. What I'm having a problem with is getting my BD players to stream 5.1 sound. Hence the purchase of the BD110. I know that one will do it, I just hope it upscales better than the BD65s.

    I just purchased a Sony BDP-S470 at Fry's for $89. I think it's a closeout. They had a whole pallet of them and then the BDP-S580 and S380 at regular price.

    I don't care for the 3D right now. I have it wired to a 1Gb network with 25Mb down/up over fiber. So far so good.

    As long as you are an Amazon Prime member, when viewing movies via Amazon on Demand, there are ones that will be free for you to download. It's basically just a flag on your account. Be advised, the list is somewhat limited as to what is free for Prime members.

    Just bought a Sony BDP-BX58 at Costco so I can stream Amazon Prime. The iPhone remote app is pretty cool too.

    I have 2 LG BD550's here - love them both.

    They do a great streaming job with Netflix, even over a WET610N wireless "n" connection.

    2 LG BD550's for me. Both are hardwired and work like a charm. Best thing was I got them for less than $100 apiece.

    So can a PS3 play 3D Blu-rays while sending DTS, 5.1, and lossless sound to our AVRs?

    I have an Xbox 360 an AppleTV and the newest member is a Panny BD110P so I can take advantage of my Amzon Prime streaming. I also have PlayOn but the interface really isn't very good for Amazon. I haven't fully test driven it yet (hooked it up yesterday) but initially it looks great. Vieracast does a lot of the big streamers. Netflix (ditched), Vudu, Hulu+, Cinema Now, Pandora and a bunch more and some weather, news and games to. Fancy interface seems nice.
    Can't wait to fully test it.
