Default Blu-ray player with good Netflix streaming

I would like a suggestion for a blu-ray player with particularly good netflix streaming capabilities. Currently I have PS3 that will be moved to the theater room. I need a BD player for the living room but it'll mainly be used for netflix streaming.

I was looking at the LG BD630 but some reviewers aren't impressed with its streaming quality. Any other alternatives? Thanks.

The PS3 is the best for Netflix since it offers 1080P quality. Netflix on all other standalone Blu-ray players is currently limited to 720P quality until a software update becomes available. OPPO, Panasonic, and Sony Blu-ray players all offer good 720P Netflix streaming and maybe a future firmware update to offer 1080P Netflix streaming like the PS3. Blu-ray optical discs are still much better in pictrue and sound compared to streaming services.

The Sony BDP-S570 works great, streams at wireless N speeds.

I keep reading good things about LG players and their online streaming features. The LG players tend to play more formats, more reliably than all the others. MKV, Divx, H264, Xvid, MPEG4, AVI, AVCHD, MPEG2, you name it, it can play it. The BD5xx series would even stream VOB files, but that has been eliminated in the latest generation
