Just as a headsup ... if you scroll down to the bottom of the review, in the comments section, you will find out that they messed up the testing and was testing the player in a previous set mode ... causing the issues. The s580 doesn't infact have any color or luma issues.
The 1gb storage can be rectified by spending $5 and putting a usb thumb drive in the back of the unit.
There is a favorites option to select your favorite VOD service and you can access them quickly now.
There is nothing wrong with the remote, nor the player being noisy.
The resume function works with Netflix.
Load times are fast and as far as construction .. I think there is only so much you can expect for $100.
