Next Cheapest £169 + Delivery and with amazon you get discount Blu-ray and HDMi as below, plsu free delivery plus £20 cheaper

AND if you add the amazon basics HDMI and a Blue-ray you get the HDMI cable free.... Not quite sure how that discount works but I added Earth Blu-Ray and the HDMI cable and it only added £5 not the £12 it should have so got the lot for £155 delivered.

These Blu-rays are great, I've got the non 3d version already and they play everything including MKV, H264 etc... All my HD files play spot on.....

Just a little reminder. ps3 are 3D ready once sony make download available.
Lady in sony shop thinks it may be late summer when 3D tv takes off and thats when sony will make patch available.

I thought Sony already released that update :?
I'm pretty sure they have.
Unless that was for making games 3D.

so are you saying its worth paying £250 to get a ps3 instead? I guess the ps3 has iplayer, youtube, like this player does, but you can also surf the net and play games! but obviously another £100

What will happen when they put Back to the Future 2 on 3d Bluray? Will that bit with the hologram shark be extra 3D or the only part in 2D? My head hurts.

For those intending to adopt 3D, you might also be interested in these magic beans I'm selling...

So you can't see any difference then? That's a shame.

I voted HOT BUT if you can get a PS3 and its getting the 3d update, its the better buy for around £200 (isnt that what they go for when discounted?)

The ridiculous glasses, colour loss and pointless crowbarring in of visual depth are pretty obvious I'd say.

Sceptic Ahoy! Chill out Captain Pedantic. It's obviously not for everyone and 3D does not suit all programming, however it is a bit of fun, albeit for now an expensive bit of fun.

FOOL + MONEY = 3D with stupid glasses

Title was a little misleading, this is a 3D READY blu ray player, isn't there a difference between this and an actual 3d Blu Ray player?

No, except it may require a firmware upgrade.

How many 3d blu rays are out then?

Useless technology until they can make it without a need for glasses for yourself, your child, dog,visitors and peeping toms.

QFT.

Glasses cost like £70 each. What if you have like 6 people in your house.

Until it is glassesless, why bother?

If you really want 3D as PS3 is only £100 more, might be a good investment (i'm a diehard xbox fanboy saying that)

3D was crap in the early 90's and it's crap now.

But this deal is blazing.

Bought the 370 from play for £99 and would recommend the 470 aswell if you need 3D ready.
Great piece of kit and watching BBC iPlayer on my TV rather than my laptop is worth it...

Hey each to their own but don't be so narrow minded to troll these threads when you have no interest in it. Just don't buy it, its really simple.

The only ridiculous thing about 3D are the idiots who don't understand the technology slagging it off. How you can tell others that they won't enjoy 3D and that they are a fool if you do is beyond me. Simple minded I guess.

Total number of blu ray 3D films that are actually in proper 3d = 1.

Monsters inc.

Not going to take off unless they start producing them, which they are not. Google it and read about it, unless its all changed they arent planning to realise hardly anything in 3d blu ray over next two years (ie less than 6 films)

Yes i agree people seem to be comparing this discounted blu ray player price with retail price of ps3 when really its £50 more not £100
.I think ps3 is worth the extra £50 ie games internet 120gb hd and more upgradable

when will ps3 support mkv ???????????????

3D has not got a standard yet. Buy a Samsung TV, buy the expensive glasses.

Change TV to Sony and you have to buy the glasses again because they are not compatible.

There's enough content to last maybe 3 days viewing.

It's too early. I read somewhere that it's 10 years away, same as when HD first came out.

I provided 3 reasons why the current generation of 3D isn't worth the investment whilst you simply adopt the position that new equals good. So who's simple minded.

3D will eventually be worthwhile but the current technology is compromised and the content lacks refined artistic implementation of 3D into films beyond pointy pointy show-boating used to try and sell the format when HD isn't even anywhere near ubiquitous.

But go ahead and spunk your cash on a crippled format since clearly you know best.

The glasses are glasses, what's ridiculous about them? The ones at the cinema cost pennies and will be used on many 3D TV systems. There is no colour loss in the new system and the likes of Avatar shows that you don't have to rely on pointing in and out of the screen.

The whole point of the new 3D is that the glasses are normal, colour loss is minimal and the films are made in 3D rather than being a gimmick. The exact opposite of what you said, its not 1950 anymore.

But don't let a lack of knowledge on the matter stop you ranting.

3D at the cinema is diffrent system ie it uses 2 images with different polarised light and cheap polarised glasses this cant be done with tv
3D tv has 2 images sent then expensive LCD shutterd glasses if you expect cinema glasses to work on tv you would be disappointed

Jwhitt;8935788

just use mkv2vob to make mkv films playable on ps3. But you would think sony would inc mkv though as it would be quite simple as its only a media container not codec.Some people have been saying ps3 slim plays mkv not got one so not tested it

Yes it can, some new TV's will use the Real3D glasses system as used in the cinema. If the current sets are using the expensive glasses then that's only because passive sets haven't been released yet.

The 3D standard is set, there is no format war, the TV manufacturers have 2 ways to do it though, the polarised glasses or the shuttered glasses. Which sort you buy is up to you but you cannot use shuttered glasses on a polarised TV and vice versa.

And even if you use shuttered glasses it is the same as the cinema 3D just a different way of getting the same effect.

Have to say it is a great player but the only problem I found with it is that when you press a button on the player with takes a time to respond but other then they a player.

I visited a local sony shop and tried out their 3D tv and glasses.
I thought it was brilliant for football and the racing game on the demo was crystal clear and the best 3D ive seen yet.

I am fully aware how 3D works ? but never seen any polarised 3D tvs yet i was just saying you cant use polarised glasses on any 3D tvs you can buy at moment unless you know of any on sale yet ?.Think shuttered glasses will hold up 3D as at moment even they are not compatable between manufactueres and expensive

LG LD950 is the updated home version of the LD920 which is rolled out around pubs in the UK for sky football and the glasses will be pennies, in fact keep the circular polarised ones you probably already have from the cinema.

Admittedly this is the only passive 3D TV set I know of but it's what I'm waiting for, only downside is that the TV in 3D will be 1080i not 1080p but as there are no broadcasters using 1080p yet and my Blueray collection is tiny this is not a major issue to me.

The LG 47LD950 is on sale at Amazon and a few other places but retails for a lot more than the equivalent active 3D TV. The polarised glass technology really bumps the cost of the setup but the glasses will be peanuts in comparison. Also passive technology only works in 1080i not 1080p so that is another downside to consider. Then again lighter glasses and less headaches (apparently).

Worth thinking about though if you have a house full of kids or mates round regulalry for the football, this is the HDMI 1.4 updated version of the LD920 which has been in pubs since Sky started doing 3D football.

thanks for info and link
passive 3d tvs seem bit thin on the ground seems to be only LG would think this is the way to go but will have to get price down though. Dont mind 1080i but the shutterd glasses technology is big drawback was used long time ago on PCs never caught on then

I'm not sure where you get this 1080i thing from. If you could link me to confirmation of this I would appreciate it.

The sky HD box will run at an equivalent of 1080i to each eye but blu ray will be a full 1080p to each eye, hence the need for HDMI spec 1.4 for the extra bandwidth needed.

Either way, both 3D TV technologies, passive or shutter will be able to handle either system. I wonder if you are confusing the sky HD 3D spec with the 3D technology specs.

Everything is thin on the ground at the moment as there's nothing to watch yet, its a brand new technology so just be patient, the new sets will come, the price will come down and the content will get better.

Moaning about it at the moment is ludicrous.

any reviews on the player it self Anybody
