Is there any modern affordable alternative to the NTV550? Most importantly the ability to play back with menus DVDs and Blu-Rays stored on a NAS in a folder layout (not ISO). I don't really see any good options today, but was wondering if its just me missing it.

The Dune players are rock solid and have been available for over 4 years now.

The NTV-550 was the "cheap" alternative player. Just about every player will do DVD menus, but when you ask for BD menus as well, the choices narrow abruptly and the prices increase even more abruptly.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

ok, just picked it up for $99.99 as it doesn't seem like there is much better option for me right now (at least for something I simply view as a toy for the moment). thanks.
