Apps are Pandora, Netflix, You Tube, Vudu, Blockbuster and a few more that I cant remember. Streaming is great. No problems to report.
3 weeks ago I bought 2 Vizio VBR231's from Costco for $129, posted my impression here, http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ighlight=vizio
However at Costco yesterday seeing this for $159 I bought one, simply for the 3D - (yea who knows about that taking off or not - that is another thread debate).
Still in box, not opened, I also bought the Sony BDP-BX57 from Costco (BDP-S570 at other stores), now have to decide between those 2...so checking each threads.
Honestly I'm very happy with the Vizio VBR231, but desire 3D for the living room (just for future proof) - which the Vizio VBR231 lacks, my basement HT has PS3 already so 3D covered there.
For our 2nd floor bedroom the combo of using same brand Vizio HDTV + Vizio Blu-ray works fine, simply 1 remote all that is needed, either remote.
The 1st floor family room though I'd like 3D proof Blu-ray player, and this seems like decent way to achieve that.
The whole DVD upscaling issue debate I read here, why is that a issue again?
Don't 95% of people who have a HDTV and 5.1 sound also have A/V that upscales?
if this is the only slight
negative then I'm leaning towards this Samsung BD-C6800 over the Sony BDP-BX57/S570, my A/V has decent upscaler chip in it.
Can someone post a screen shot of the apps from the Samsung BD-C6800?
I'd like to see how those look onscreen.
I did in my vizio post like below and a pict is worth many words.
These are the Vizio VBR231 apps, like to compare to Samsung BD-C6800 apps for reference
