Anyone here a electronics guru?

I'm in the market for a new blu/DVD player.

Requirements:
Ability to play video formats from USB
Play multiple/various video formats from disc (more the better)
Needs to have Internet apps ( at least Netflix, but doesn't have to be wifi)
Price range in between $100-200, closer to $100of course the better.
Doesn't have to be 3D, would prefer not to be to keep cost lower.

In a nutshell, looking for one that can play videos from USB, play a ton of different formats and has Netflix apps.

If anyone has one that matching this, please tell what it is and pros/cons.

Thanks....

PS3 is hands down the best blu ray player still...I think on black friday weekend they were down to 200. If you wait it out a lil longer til the end of this year, I think the PS4 is supposed to release, which means the ps3 price should go down more...

I've used a few standalone blu ray players, but I always have problems with certain video formats with those...with the PS3, it pretty much plays everything. Plus I can play games! haha

Yup, PS3 plays pretty much anything and as mentioned many stand alone units have issues with not only compatibility but reliability as well. No use in spending any money on a future door stop. Spring for the PS3, even a used one.

I'm currently looking at Blu ray players as well. I'm behind in technology, my brother recommended Panasonic or Sony. There's a very nice looking silver panasonic player that has everything ever needed but I'm hoping it will go down in price, right now it's $230

What is the disk load time for a PS3?

Take a look at the Sony BDP-S590. It will playback from USB and it has wi-fi w/ apps. Plus it's currently under $100 @ Amazon.

Disk load time, never thought about it but by the time I sit down the Sony PS3 menu is up, select DVD movie, its playing.
