I got a Sony BDP-S480 that arrived last week and picture quality is much better than the Samsung C5500 I was using but boy the network errors to connect! It took me 20 minutes the other night to connect to Netflix after numerous tries. But once connected there were no rebuffering problems. Connecting to Vudu and YouTube was instantaneous. Not sure why Netflix and Amazon would have such problems other than network congestion due to new subscribers and vacation watchers. I'll see what happens this coming week. In the meantime I've posted the problem on the S480 thread over on the Bluray player section. I see from a search others have had similar problems but their solutions didn't necessarily work. The Samsung was never this bad at connecting.
