I've become overwhelmed looking for a product (Christmas gift) that can play Blu-ray, stream Netflix, and incorporates a fully functional browser, IOW one that can display most if not all of the content that a PC with IE9 can.
I settled on the Sony NSZ-GT1 as having the best features and keyboard-like remote but searching to actually buy one has revealed that it must not be in production anymore. There is talk of the next model, NSZ-GP9, but it apparently is still not for sale. I can't wait much longer due to the Christmas time crunch.
Sony has a site that is selling the GT1 as refurbished.
I will probably try that route if I don't hear of anything better but I am concerned that A) they are out of stock on the refurbished unit (the site hasn't been updated) + finding this out will cost precious time or B) the unit is totally unsupported and I will not have any support or recourse if it is defective.
Any thoughts on a all-in-one player as an alternative to this? I've heard nothing but bad things about browser function on other cheaper players like the Samsung BDE5900. If there was a product out there with a good browser that just needed a wireless keyboard to function well I'd be interested in knowing about it. I'm concerned about the browser not allowing flash updates and/or not getting necessary firmware updates over the life expectancy of the product to keep it at modern internet standards.
Thanks for any advice.
