Picked this up on BF at BB. Great player. Wireless signal is very good with my WRT54G and I have no issues streaming 720p content from over 30 feet away. Streams Amazon and Netfix without any problems. The video fine tuning settings on this player should be the standard for all but the most basic Blu-ray players. The transport is very quiet, it loads all disks fast, DLNA works great and the LCD can be dimmed extremely low. BDLive may require an external memory source, but I never use it. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

I was about to jump on the BDT220 by PM'ing Fry's at BB since I have a bunch of BB store credit. However, I started to read about the BDT220's DLNA streaming (I'd use wired and not wireless) and there are a ton of complaints that it won't play back many standard files over DLNA that it will on a connected USB drive.
Meanwhile I don't see such DLNA streaming video/audio file compatibility complaints for the Sony S590, so I'm leaning towards that for $16 more (at Amazon).. I could PM at BB and pay about $10 in tax and use my store credit. Or I could get the BDX59 at Costco.com for $85 which people claim is the same as the S590.
What should I do?
I would like to use up the BB store credit, so I guess paying sales tax is the price I pay (as Amazon doesn't yet charge tax in my state). I don't want to have grief with DLNA streaming issues if I get the BDT220. I'm quite certain that my BB won't PM the Sony BDX59 at Costco since it's a different model # even if though it's the same thing.
