"Futureproof"4.5 starson by kuliddar
Pros: Constant profile updates, fast loading time, very versatile, great upconverter
Cons: Not a lot of outputs, need to pay extra to get a remote if you don't want to use PS3 controller
Summary: I wanted to get into Blu-ray but wanted something future proof that I could enjoy for a very long time. The PS3 was a no brainer for a BR player. Not only because of its price but also because it receives profile updates often, keeping the player updated to the new specs of BR. It's a great upconverter and obviously, the plus is that I can also get games if I wish. My primary use for it is movies since I bought it last Jan. and have yet to buy a single game. I have a dozen BR movies though
It's really a great product and people shouldn't be caught in the paradigm that a console isn't as good as a stand-alone player...on the contrary.
