Good price. £269.99 on play.com. Heat added.

One question, as a novice on Blu-Ray - why would someone spend this amount on a Blu-ray player when a PS3 can now be bought for around the same price? I'm genuinely interested to know.

Thanks!

I don't have a Blu-ray player or PS3 but I have heard from friends that a PS3 can be a little noisy due to the fan. It's probably fine if it's in a cabinet.
I'm looking for a cheap Blu-ray player myself but I'm still undecided on which one.

"Old style" PS3 does have a noise from the fan, ayes. But it's so slight it isn't really noticeable once you get used to it. I'm needing a blu-ray player of some kind for the living room before Crimbo ... but the PS3 now has BBC iPlayer, Vidzone & the ability to record freeview tv programmes onto the hard drive with the optional extra gadget, the name of which escapes me.

Might be another PS3 I'll be buying ... all comes down to £££, value for money and "future proofness".

Performance from a stand-alone player is arguably better than from a PS3, depends how serious you are about picture and sound quality. Its not that the PS3 is a bad blu ray player, far from it, its just that you can get better like anything.

I have the 60GB PS3 and the fan was so loud i bought the Sony S350 blu ray which is whisper quiet.

The picture on the 350 is superb so the 550 must be excellent. You could save a few quid and get the S350 for a lot less (£134 at Argos).

Also the picture is better on the blu-ray player than the PS3.

LOL. doesn't everything with a Sony badge.

Really should re-brand that magazine to "WhatSony"

Maybe they should bring out a magazine for the What Hi Fi haters club too?
