Bought one of these at Christmas as Amazon were selling them back then for not much more. Completely agree with the review - windows7 media player playback to the smp-n100 works flawlessly - it's positioned in the bedroom on a 4 year old Sony lcd - and despite the distance form the wireless router, once it has buffered the video stream works extremely well - the BBC iPlayer content is available in HD - but either SD or HD quality are just like watching normal TV on a 22inch.

I just wish they would provide 4OD as well - fingers crossed it comes soon - but overall i love it - and love how it gave a TV which still has a great picture another lease of life with streamed content.

Glad I read through to the verdict, so that I didn't make an arse of myself suggesting that a Sony blu-ray player might be a better option.

Of course to get wifi you'd need the BDP-570 (or newer 580) and this costs a bit more than the 470.

The BDP-570 is a very nice piece of kit. I use one with a Samsung 51" LED, they work well together. I'd consider this for the mater bedroom 37" Vizio.
