So i am finally going to make the jump to blu-ray, but i can not decide on what type of player to get. My friend says PS3, as it can also play games and is upgradeable. I want a stand alone player because they are cheaper, use less power, and are less likely to break (as his ps3 and many of our friend's xbox's have failed). Requirements of my whole set up would be to play blu-ray movies, i would like to stream content from home network, and maybe netflix or something along those lines. Now, i know blu-ray players don't do network streaming, but the Western Digital WDTV was highly recommended by many of my friends. That device can stream .mkv's, .avi's music photos and just about anything else. My thoughts behind the whole deal is i save the 100 to 150 bucks by geting a stand alone player, spend that on the WDTV, and have everything i want. Anyone want to shed some light on my decision/any specific suggestions as far as blu-ray players go. I have looked at the Sony S570, and think that is a decent player between the CNET reviews and the customer reviews. Thanks in advance.
