This really is an excellent player, both for the money and in general. Picture quality is top notch and the upscaling from lo-def material is equally good. The network player feature works flawlessly and combined with Wild Media Server (DLNA server software) pretty much everything I've thrown at it plays without a hitch.
I originally bought this as a stop-gap item, intending to get a more expensive unit later, but having compared it to much more expensive player and found no noticeable differences, I've decided to keep it. Pair it with a Samsung plasma TV and you have the makings of a kick-ass movie system.
