Best Blu-Ray Player ~$200

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My best friend is getting married in a month and he wants a BR player. Netflix streaming is a must as he is addicted to it. I am currently looking at the Sony BDP-S580. Just wondering if guys have any experience with BR players in this price range. Help and input will be appreciated.
Mods, feel free to move this if it's in the wrong section.

I like Samsung. They have worked wonders for me. The one I would buy now is BD-D5500ZA if you want 3D. For just normal BR, BD-D5700ZA. Yeah, weird, the lower number is the 3D one.

I would hop into a store and just check out the players man! That's what stores are for.

PS3

Spend the extra $100. It does Netflix (1080p / 5.1) and 3D and Internet and music and videos. Oh and it plays games too.
