Does anyone have experiance with the new players? I'm setting up my home theater room and could always use input. It's getting paired with a nice plasma so I'd prefer quality over store brand type of shit. I priced a Sony around $1000 so before I go get swamped with model numbers etc, anyone want to give me general guidance?
just get a ps3...you'll have a blu-ray player and a game system for $500. they even have remotes for them, so i'm sure that you can make an "all-in-one" type remote work.
That's the other thing I am contemplating, I just didn't know if there was any differences between that and a standard BluRay player. I've got a fuckload of game systems which makes me unsure on adding another one to the mess of wiring with surround sound etc.
No 2 pager I hope, not a debate, just guide me to a couple good BR players and problem solved
You can use it as a game system. It's badass, just few games (so far).
Works great with Blu-ray movies and upconverts regular DVDs.
You can get a Bluetooth remote, which is very slick.
You can download updates as they come available.
I have been holding out for the Samsung Dual Format player. It is definately going to be worth the wait. They have been delaying the release date for a while and Best Buy says they are expecting them around Jan. 15.
I just went through this about a week ago. Decided to go ahead and buy the PS3. It has been awesome so far. Picture quality is great, and the audio is pretty good also.
I wanted the Blu Ray player so I could have more movies. The Toshiba HD DVD player I have is awesome, but didn't have all of the movies that I wanted. Now I have both formats, and I could really care less who wins
