    Ok, I admit I've been out of the loop for a long time, so I'm asking for oppinions here.


    Here's what I NEED:
    blu ray support (obv)
    dvd upconversion
    usb support
    Divx playback

    And it would certainly be nice if it were netflix ready out of the box.

    What would you guys recommend?

    I was about to get it but wanted the dongle included. Those fucksticks want $80 for the dongle. Bestbuy didn't have the 3600 in stock though.

    I'm thinking about just buying another damn PS3 at this point.

    I have a spare router (or two at this point) and am going to set up a wireless bridge for it and my TV (Samsung 640 42" LCD). Not that the TV needs it, but because I can.

    I'm looking at the LG BD370 (Netflix, Youtube, Divx, etc), but the new BD550 is coming out soon (less than 1 month) and will also include Pandora and a few other things.

    I just picked up the 2009 LG BD390 on clearance. This player is incredible. WiFi, INCREDIBLE up-conversion for both DVD and streaming. Yes, it allows you to stream from your computer. :eek3: The load times are fast as shit. They discontinued this model (LG only made it from like March '09 to Nov/Dec of '09), but it is still one of the best ones out there.

    I would say that it might even be better than some of the newer models that were just released a few days ago. :eek3: If you can find one (Best Buy carries them), pick it up. Otherwise, you'll have to get the yet untested new models from LG (550/570/590) or others.
