I guess it could be seen "somewhat" as a positive that the majority of complaints on here are with respect to the network media aspects of the player. While someday I may try out Netflix (and hope it works with HD) I bought this player after being bit by the Blu-Ray bug. I'll admit I haven't been able to compare HD streaming from my computer, Youtube, Netflix, etc. to Blu-Ray but reviews I read state that Blu-Ray is superior, both in video and audio (I don't think you can stream TrueHD or DTS-MA, correct?). That being said, so far I've found the S570 to be great at BD playback, although I'm not sure how this player stacks up BD-wise with the touted Panny BD-85. I know the Panny is a little better with DVD upconvert, but I compared the Sony to my Samsung 2550 with DVD playback and both suck...even though the 2550 has HQV processing and is supposed to still be one of the best you can get. I won't ever get a Samsung again though (except maybe TV) as their Blu-Ray players have lots of issues and they don't update firmware very often, especially when they're needed.
