Agree, a ps3 has many benefits.
linux, games, online browser, photo gallery, music, movies and many more.

agreed but that only if you want all that - what i will say is the blu on the ps3 is superior due to the contant updates

And I will say the quality of blu ray will stay the same from day 0... because it's a standard. Do different players really make a difference? Isn't it just like DVDs where the best encoded ones win hands down and rubbish ones are just rubbish.

Transformers on DVD as a case in point.

Where can i get a new ps3 for £200 ? As i was thinking of getting the ps3 infamous bundle from play earlier for £265.99. Was on the confirm payment page but decided against it in the end as i want a ps3 cheaper.

Yer true - some dvds are awful transfers so make the blus look amazing but then e.g sunshine dvd doesnt look THAT much different to the blu

yup. different bd players really do have differences from one another. for example the best bd player available now afaik is pioneer bdp-lx91 has lots of benefits and improvements in terms of audio and video quality (even when playing using sd dvd) over other bd players...especially ps3 and other entry level player.

as spotted by bingo?

It says for the free BR trilogy 'offer ends 21st May' yet still adds to basket OK for free............
#12
i have this bluray player and its a cracking machine,its profile 2.0 and upgradeable through internet updates via lan,also have it connected to my network with home plugs and it works great for the blu rays that have BD live content although you will need at least a 1gb usb mem stick for this which plugs in the back out of the way,i have this in my living room as part of my set up,i hear the calls about the ps3,which i also own but thats upstairs in the spare room,good for games but too big and ugly for the living room,i also think the stand alone player gives a better quality picture and sound than the PS3

Come on 'topdealman' where can i get a new ps3 for £200 as i really want one :).

could have at least given bingo credit instead of just posting then ignoring the fact it was pointed out he posted it in another thread.
#16
Have this player, it's great. And the updates aren't a problem as it has an ethernet port for any firmware updates (they take a while though.) Use it with my 32" Samsung LCD and it's a fantastic picture. And like someone else said, it can all depend on the studio putting the Blu Ray out, because the Gangs of New York DVD picture quality wasn't great, and this has transferred directly over to Blu Ray. Movies like The Matrix and Transformers however look outstanding.

Similar to this: I saw a blu-ray player for £150 when you buy any blu-ray film. This was at Blockbuster if any1 is interested.

Odd thinking.

What do you think the ethernet port in the back of the 350 is for?

We have this Blue ray player and it's a great piece of kit. I'd recommend it.

If you can live with the fan noise or position the PS3 where it's not a problem. The noise isn't an issue when playing games but a real problem when watching films. I'm considering a player now and this looks like a very good deal.

ps3 is noisier and is a much poorer bluray playing spec, no hdmi 1.3 and doesnt support all the hd audio codecs i believe.
suspended#23
Has anyone actually gone through and bought this deal? I say this as it says the offer for the free Spderman discs ends on the 21st May?? :whistling:

Still a good price for the stand alone player though.....

thats not true mate. out of the box ps3 (even without the latest f/w updates) capable to decode at least dolby true hd. rumours has it says that ps3 will also capable to decode dts-hd ma in the future f/w updates
#25
I took back a Bush one on Friday night and asked for the Sony instead. The assistant said, 'you got Spiderman free with this too'. Expecting a single disc I was surprised to see it was The Trilogy even though website says offer ends 21 May. I didn't query it, just said thank you and left.
#26
Funnily, Play just finished a similar promotion but you got Slumdog free. If you have a Harmony remote you can go to AVForums and there's a thread there to help you make it DVD Region Free using your Harmony.

I don't think this decodes all audio formats, which I don't mind because my amp decodes all the high def formats so I can just bitstream to the amp, but if you need all the codecs decoding by the player, you might want to look elsewhere.

Great player, though, no problems with it. Loading times are quite fast if you leave the fast loading on, although that does waste power.
#27
Bought this on the Asda deal a few months ago (with 6 Blu-Ray's free) - can't compliment it enough, it's a great piece of kit - very fast and quiet. Only criticism is the odd shape - it's very long (or is that wide?) but not very deep.

I use it most for playing AVCHD disks - that is, high-defininition video in MKV format converted to AVCHD using TSMuxer and burnt to regular DVD-R - these it plays without a problem as long as the resolutions are exactly 1280x720 or 1920x1080.

I noticed that but it comes out at £149.99 when you add it all & try to reserve it so it must still be valid

How exactly do u make this region free, my uncle wants one but he owns a lot of US dvds ( watches a lot of old films LOL)
#30
Dose this unit play div x? and have a usb connection?.
#31
Regarding the PS3 option, it is the big game show this week in America and Sony will be making some big announcements (including the new leaked PSP). Word on the street is they are not gunna do a price drop on the PS3 until September, but if they did one next week then the PS3 would become an even better option.

oh my word.....


You really believe a badly encoded blu ray will fluctuate in quality on sub-£1000 consumer players.

Blu rays are all well encoded anyways and I would venture to say that the quality will be same til something drastic hardware happens. Otherwise it's down to what TV you have not what blu ray player.

doesn't need to be sony - just small / slim

visit avforums for info on types known to fit

It has a USB socket on the back but as its a recessed socket it does need to be a thin one.

what do you need a sony memory stick for? why not use a usb pen if you want to play movies from external storage?

Haven't seen £200 PS3 deals become hot for the few weeks I've had an RSS feed going, that link is 6 months old. Also the cheapest PS3 they have is £225 and they don't have many left and it doesn't come with Spider-man Trilogy or a remote.

So this currently seems a hot enough deal for someone that just wants to play blu-rays.
#39
You could probably get £20+ for the films on eBay if they are not your cup of tea.
#40
So using a remote is the only way? Seems weird u can't do it on the remote that comes with it
