Help choosing a new player


Active Member
So far I've returned the panasonic 210 and sony 580.

The 210 rear usb is for skype camera only, and I don't wan't my external hdd hanging out the front. Also missed iplayer and no ntfs support.

The 580 did everything I wanted but seemed very glitchy. It froze a few times and wouldn't always play files from either usbs.

Is there any other player I should try before ordering a 2nd 580? It must do everything the 580 does (wifi, iplayer, ntfs, rear usb, 3D etc)

Thanks for the advice :smashin:

Samsung usually have players that are pretty versatile, if that's what you're after.

Picked up another S580 this morning.

Got a multi region one (dvd only) from PRC Direct for £129.

This was the cheapest I could find by quite a long way, instore only though.

Can also claim Harry Potter 3D Blu-ray.

Hopefully this one will be less glitchy.
