Hi guys, just wanted to update you all, I finally got my S590 today from amazon. I set it up and fired up the ol' Netflix to see how it would do with streaming. After several movies, I am nothing but smiles with this thing. I get 3 bars wireless to the device and I had 0 dropouts and 0 ridiculous lack flashing screens like my old Panny 210.
I checked the display and it streamed at mostly medium to HD levels of picture quality. Once it picks up the stream, it seems to be pretty consistent with medium to high picture quality, no drops to SD res, except if you pause sometimes. I haven't tried Amazon VOD yet to see how that fairs, but so far the S590 is shaping up to be a winner in my book
Once I test out some blurays, I'll be closer to my confirmation of this. The menu is not as clear as the PS3 XMB or as responsive, but it seems to be working just fine.
One weird thing I noticed is that the remote seems to be a bit manic, like button presses are too sensitive. I had to slow down and speed up my button presses to have them register at proper speeds. Did anyone notice this? I hope I didn't get a defective unit. Even when I programmed the remote onto my Harmony 550, the button press speeds seem to be kind of hairy and sometimes it won't register, or when it does, it'll register twice. Anyone have this happen to them?
