My first question: Should I stay where I am?
It depends on who you ask. I think you basically just need to read the last several pages of this thread and make the decision for yourself. I'm using the most current firmware BD.8.97.413.E H90378, and I haven't had any issues with the unit. I had some Netflix issues a while back where it would begin to play a movie and then say that it encountered an error and stop, but since I disabled Quick Start, that hasn't been a problem. Several people have reported audio issues and Netflix stuttering issues, but I haven't encountered either of those. However, I have my BD670 connected via ethernet which seems to be less error prone than WiFi, and I only use it to play DVDs and Blu-Rays and stream movies from Netflix, Amazon, or Vudu. I don't use it to stream media files from my local network or USB drives or anything.
One word of advice. If you do decide to upgrade the firmware, remove your USB flash drive first. I've tried a couple of different brands of flash drives, and if I had either of them connected when I attempted to upgrade the firmware, the player would download the firmware, but then the install would fail. Once I removed the flash drive and rebooted, the update worked, so there seems to be some sort of conflict there.
