This is a licensing issue. The C200 has full BR support and the A210 is basically the C200 but smaller, uses ir remote, support for one internal hard drive. The A210 would make for an excellent player.
As mentioned, the Netgear 550 is not out. It also doesn't support an internal hard drive if that is an issue.
With the A210 you get support from a very large and enthusiastic community of users. Ask yourself if that would be comparable with the Netgear product.
All I know is that I really like my C200 and since the A210 is very similar ( and totally quiet like the C200) I know which I would choose.
