Just wanted to post my impressions. Got a pretty good deal, using it to replace an old DVD/VHS player (VHS?). Main reason I chose it (over the Panasonic 210) was to play video from my Sony SDR12, which it does seemlessly through the from USB portal directly off the camera. Hooked it up to my Panasonic 42 plasma and ran a cable from my router to update the software and tried some of the streaming features, which all worked fine. Then unhooked the cable and watched Youtube using the Wi-fi, which worked fine(located about 18 feet from the 580. Main problem is Comcast cable, as the speeds were barely over 1.0 Mbps, which played OK without freeze ups. The hulu demos did freeze up a few times. Other notes, I still have a Playstation 3, not being used at present, so the Sony menus were no big deal. My main question to the forum is what download speeds are necessary for any decent HD (i.e., 720p)?
Other notes: DVD upconversion is good and at least on par with my Pioneer 320, which is a little better than my old Oppo 971. I also have an LG 530 that is very close to the 320 and 971.
