Which Blu-ray player for Plex?


Novice Member
I've been holding out for an apple TV3 jailbreak but as I'm in the market for a new BD player I should just go for one that supports the Plex App.

Looking at samsung as they have an official App

Which would people recommend? I'm looking for something that will be able to handle my 1080p .MKV files. I don't have a 3D TV and I don't intend in on getting one any time soon, if at all.

Wasn't looking at spending much more that £100 but I'm open to it if it's really worth while.

Any help would be massively appreciated. Thanks.

I think most older < 2011 models have the app to download at present, but latest 2012 models (including the ES Tv's) do not yet.

Be warned though I have a 2010 3D bluray player and Plex is dire, its so slow, and from what I understand the BD players all have less horsepower than the equivalent years TV's.
I have Plex on my ES8000 tv (got beta access) and it works very well, GUI is fairly slick and certainly runs nice.
