The Samsung player does not have an ethernet port, so firmware can only be upgraded by CD, which is downloaded from Samsung's website. As for whether the player is refurbished, only the seller can answer that. Lastly, $390 for the player is a far better deal than the player's original MSRP of $999, and the $35 warranty is a bargain compared to Best Buy's prices.
No offense, but you probably should have asked these questions before winning the auction.
