Hi guys, I'm currently using a Sony BDP-5100. However since 80% of the time using this player is spent watching Netflix, I'm getting tired of waiting for the app to load and interface to move on. Also, uh, the 5100 makes a very deep vibration noise, which probably indicate it will self-destroy soon.
In a secondary setup I have a Roku 3 in which the Netflix app stays loaded and is sooo much faster. So why don't I buy another Roku 3 and be done with it? Ah. I'm not the primary user and the whole HT setup is controlled using a Harmony IR remote. For the kid's and my wife's sake, I really need to have the whole "movie" thing accessible under a single device for both Netflix and disc watching.
I don't need 4K, upscaling or not. 3D is irrelevant for me. So it looks like the BDP-3700 would be a decent upgrade? How is the Netflix experience on the unit? On a Youtube video I saw that the interface was similar to the one in tablets and on the Roku, so it looks much more refined than on the 5100.
What are the worthy competitors at about the same price?
Last question... is the remote IR or BT? If it's not IR, I'd be screwed with the Harmony setup.
