I got this through a rewards site I earn points with and there were a few different bluray players listed, but I chose this one due to the actual price comparison with the others offered on the rewards site, brand reputation, and the capabilities/technical aspects. I now have it and I really like it. I already own the Sony BDP-S590, and this is certainly smaller and easier to use than that, especially with the full keyboard on screen when you need to type things in...it's much easier to use than the qwerty keyboard in my previous model. I got this model for my second television to use for mostly streaming and this model picks up the wifi very well and quickly!
The only downside is that it takes a little while to boot up, but they have also partially fixed that with an option to put it in a sleep mode of sorts so startup is quicker. There is no digital screen display, but who really needs that when there is a button on your remote that can show you that right on your screen.
It plays discs well and certainly improves the quality of DVDs. The remote is small and lightweight, but has all the buttons you could want (possibly more) laid out in a logical way. All in all a great bluray player with tons of apps available and very user-friendly.
