I wonder if this would produce a better picture streaming Netflix, instead of just streaming Netflix from the TV application? Just bought the Panny Plasma 55" GT50, love it, but since I very rarely watch DVD's and Blu Ray, I primarily only would have this to stream Amazon and Netflix, Hulu+, which the TV already does. Any advantage to streaming trough a blu-ray over the TV directly?
Assuming you're able to stream HD already, I would guess there's not much of an advantage. The main complaint I see with built-in Netflix apps is sluggishness or crashing, so as long as you're happy with that part of the interface, I wouldn't necessarily buy another device just for that.
