You won't find a better blu-ray player for less than $500 or so than the PS3.

What a load of crap. PS3 sucks as a BD player. The PQ is terrible. I only use it as a back up for watching BDs. You are out of your mind if you think PS3 is better than the Oppo BDP-93 which costs $499.00. The cheaper LGs blow the PS3 away for PQ. Hell even the budget Insignias have better PQ than PS3. I should know seeing as I have 5 stand alone BD players and a PS3. PS3 is the last one I would use to watch BDs with my projector and 106" screen.

To the OP - Don't listen to these clueless gaming fanboys. Go to AVS and get answers from true videophiles.

There IS one little problem with the PS3 as a blu ray player.
Not a big deal to a lot of people, BUT
The PS3 uses 3 to 4 times as much electricity when running a blu ray than any standard Blu Ray player.
(According to X-Play. If you think you can believe them).

Anyone know how long it takes to get that Avatar movie from Panasonic in the mail? If you did sell it on ebay, then that player is a steal!!

Sigh, its been almost 4 weeks and I still have not got my 3d movie in. I have a bravia 3d (55") with every console hooked up to it :) 3Dtv is sick. You have to see it to realize what your missing out on, the gaming is the sole reason I purchased it. I just bought a 3rd pair of new sony glasses too (the revised ones, 30% lighter, and re-chargeable).

I am DYING to get avatar in 3d.... damn mail in rebates...
