Great. Enjoy!

FYI, if you want to save a few bucks, there's a ton of "refurb" (read: Best Buy returns) silver models on ebay right now for $54 shipped. Been thinking about pulling the trigger on one of those myself.

eh, tempting. But I'll take being able to walk out of the store with one, as well as 45 days of no question returns.

We've been pretty careful about ventilation. Regardless, now that the thing is showing bad symptoms, it's time to buy something new. Spending $500+ for an Oppo is beyond our reach (and for that matter, I don't know if they are any more electronically reliable than a $100-150 Sony or Samsung). So the question which remains is whether there's much difference between players at roughly the same price point. Reading reviews on Newegg, Amazon, etc. is disheartening since most of the Sony and Samsung players come in at 3 stars out of 5.

The two most popular, and most recommended here, are Sony and Panasonic. I've had 2 Samsung's in the past and vowed never to buy another. Currently, I have 2 Sonys (790 and 7200), 2 Panasonics (320 and 230), an Oppo, and a Denon. Sony has been my best all around player.

I currently have a Panasonic BDT110 and a Sony BD S470. I've had more issues with the Sony than the Panny..

Can anybody tell me what the material on the top of the Panny BDT360 is? It looks like brushed aluminum. I'm wondering if it's really just plastic or if it's actually metal. Would it be acceptable to place a PS4 directly on top of it?

Yes, and I never had a problem with my 110 for either discs or Netflix streaming.
