Your findings would help people decide which player they want to get.
I would however the S390 and S590 has now being returned (and actually so has the S790) .... so I have nothing currently !
Had a couple of issues with the S790, which I described in this thread, and will get a replacement tomorrow. Nothing earth shattering and if anything I think it wasn't a hardware issue anyway, more firmware. That said, I thought its best to be on the safe side ... and could help other later too.
As far as a comparison, I had the S590 and S790 for a short period where I attempted to make some comparisons between the two, which I described. They are subtle indeed so I wouldn't necessarily read too much into it. I would weigh up some of the other features of the S790 v s590 and decide if the extra ~$100 is worth it to you.
Another point is, that the IP Noise reduction Pro setting only applies when the Sony internet content playback engine is used. So applies to most content other than Netflix and VUDU, where they use their own engines. So if Netflix and VUDU is all you use, this setting wouldn't even come into play. Worth noting, and something I realize I didn't make clear earlier.
