If anybody is concerned about buying a ReFurb'd Blu-ray player... I've purchased 3 with pretty good but mixed success (two from Woot - I have not always been faithful... :-/)
One was quite a while ago, and did not have any apps built in. It did have a purplish tint to the left part of the screen (but for $40 when BR players were routinely $150+, I dealt with it). The other two have been more recent, and included apps. They've worked like a charm, and I have found no issues with their performance.
