I have a Panasonic 230 (around $130) and it sees my photo and video shares on my PC and displays them very well. (There was a new firmware update in the last week that made everything work better.) You have to specify the server by IP address, so you'll want to set it up with a fixed IP address.
It also works very well with DLNA for audio. I'm using Asset UPnP (from the dbPoweramp folks) and it plays everything I have tried, including 96 and 192 kHz audio and 5.1 surround sound as well. The only negative is that it's not a gapless player, so when listening to a live album, or something like Dark Side of the Moon, there is a short silence between tracks that sounds stupid. I'm hoping they'll fix that in the next firmware update.
