I took your suggestion on the JVC and have not looked back. I am considering the Yamaha for my "big screen" and was still wondering if you are still singing the praises for the 667.
Also I have only been able to find this unit for more than the $200 you mention. Where are you finding this unit for around two bills?
When it first came out, Amazon looked very aggressive in selling them and I bought mine for $219 from memory.
They player is competitive, but is lacking the real bang for the buck where it's currently hovering. If it were only to dip a little lower, it would be a nice blend of speed, pretty to very good dvd playback, and limited streaming. At $250, it's still a bit pricey compared to a Panasonic 85 or LG BD590 or even Sony BDP-S770 that theoretically offer a lot more in respects of basic features (wifi, more streaming, 7.1 analog or wifi or 3d).
