Blu-ray Player With Good Internet Browser  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've become overwhelmed looking for a product (Christmas gift) that can play Blu-ray, stream Netflix, and incorporates a fully functional browser, IOW one that can display most if not all of the content that a PC with IE9 can.

I settled on the Sony NSZ-GT1 as having the best features and keyboard-like remote but searching to actually buy one has revealed that it must not be in production anymore. There is talk of the next model, NSZ-GP9, but it apparently is still not for sale. I can't wait much longer due to the Christmas time crunch.

Sony has a site that is selling the GT1 as refurbished.

I will probably try that route if I don't hear of anything better but I am concerned that A) they are out of stock on the refurbished unit (the site hasn't been updated) + finding this out will cost precious time or B) the unit is totally unsupported and I will not have any support or recourse if it is defective.

Any thoughts on a all-in-one player as an alternative to this? I've heard nothing but bad things about browser function on other cheaper players like the Samsung BDE5900. If there was a product out there with a good browser that just needed a wireless keyboard to function well I'd be interested in knowing about it. I'm concerned about the browser not allowing flash updates and/or not getting necessary firmware updates over the life expectancy of the product to keep it at modern internet standards.

Thanks for any advice.

The mods ask that we use the "OFFICIAL "HELP ME CHOOSE A PLAYER" THREAD: Can't decide? Start HERE" thread for these types of queries.
