I am a new owner of a BDP-S570, having decided to purchase a BD and have it home, and setup, in advance of the April release of Avatar.
I have played the same BR movie (National Treasure) twice , and one SD-DVD. The load time on National Treasure was certainly acceptable, though I did not time it.... seemed quick enough. The upconversion of the SD-DVD seemed at least equal to my previous Toshiba upconverting DVD player.
In addition the wireless connection appears fine, I had no problem connecting to my G network even though I filter by mac addy and do not broadcast. It seems pretty reliable, and I've streamed a few Youtube vids and watched a few trailers.
My audio is DD 5.1 via optical. I also believe it sounds better than SD-DVD, probably just an effect of less compression.
