That makes the list very short. I personally like the C200 over the Dunes, especially since they added NMJ which creates a database for you automatically of your movies with coverart, info etc..
Of course many people also prefer the Dunes over the C200. But The C200 also has a bunch of internet apps. Not Netflix though. but you really can't go wrong with either one it's just a matter of what you want out of the media player.
Although I mainly use my Boxee Boxes now and my C200 for when I want full BD navigation or for those discs that will not play properly with simple BD navigation.
