I would wait for the $144 savings UNLESS you can get shipped to a US address.
Does the BDP-93 use only US based Netflix or Canadian as well?
Price gap probably wouldn't be quite that large, the $533 from SolutionsAV would be subject to PST/GST which would add another $69 or so to the price.
Having said that, Solutions AV would still be the best way to go for most Canadians, IMO.
Fortunately I can have the unit shipped to a US address. I'm only 10 minutes from the border and know people on the other side. Of course any significant savings are only realized if I'm able to get the player to my side of the border without paying duty and taxes.
Depends on how generous the customs officer is feeling that day
