Sounds like a good deal. You can download the latest firmware update from Samsung's website. Burn it to a DVD or CD and put it in the player to update once you get it.

would a 3 year warranty for 34.99 be worth it?

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.

I probabaly should have done some more research but it was an absurd impulse buy this morning, i saw it had 2 mins left and it was at 350, so i went for it and got it....... didnt think i would.....

It's probably a refurb. I bought one for $380 a week ago from (probably) the same source. i got it quickly, updated the firmware, and so far, so good.

Too funny. I think you outbid me by $5 on this player this morning. It is a refurb. Just make sure you put the latest firmware on it. There are good and bad reviews for this player, but I think you got a decent player for $400...
