    true. I didn't mention it because I heard somewhere that youtube was broken for the PS3 recently and haven't checked it since. Probs bollocks.

    And is around 150 from teh Germans. Sounds like a winner.

    I run PS3 media server off a netbook with no worries
    I watch streaming stuff off the web (mostly sport and porn) all the time. It looks better on the telly than it does my laptop. I don't find may vids it can't play. (ITV player and 40d don't work though).

    You've never had the experience of trying to play an HD MKV file on the PS3 without prior full file conversion then.

    Yeah, I could never get HD stuff transferring from my netbook either. Thankfully MKV2VOB converts a 4gb movie file in about 10 minutes

    It works as along as you don't ff or rw or pause or basically do anything that isn't just watching the film. And that's with 720p stuff. If I want to do otherwise I copy across. Not a massive problem really.

    I have a Samsung BD something or other... can't remember exactly. My PS3 however does a much better job at playing blu-rays, it's much faster.

    (I still stream the sound from the PS3 to the BD to get my surround sound though.)

    In other news, I think forgoing a PS3 and to go about seeking a device which does 1/4 of what the PS3 does because you don't want a PS3 in your house is ridiculous.

    Make sure you plug the sound cables in eh phage?

    To be fair I bought a BD player as I thought it would be better than the PS3 for blu-rays. I didn't beleive that a multi task machine would perform as well as a dedicated player for the same price.

    It was only much later when I got the PS3 that I realised it was actually as good as / better than my samsung player.

    I do have a Sony telly, but I also have a NAD "learning remote" which I use for pretty much everything.

    Build an HTPC, slap MediaPortal on, slap TMT on, job done.

    The PS3 is a very good BR player, and now they added bitstreaming to the BR playback in the Slim, has decent sound. I have an original fat though, and so it doesnt bitsream BR disks.

    More importantly though, they dont bitstream HD audio from MKVs, and I rip all my BR disks to the drobo, and stream off the PC.

    Two options.

    Buy PS3 and be happy that you can now rise above the fanboyness and into the hallowed heavens of dual platform ownership.


    Don't buy PS3 And risk someone making up a nickname for you, something like Fanboy phAge.
    Fanboy phAge has a ring to it that, if it referred to me, would probably make me throw myself in the canal.


    So there you have it.

    Choose heaven or Choose the local canal.

    The PS3 is apparently faster at loading than a large amount of stand alone players cheap and expensive. It also pretty much does anything a stand alone can do and will also do 3D out of the box via an update.

    You need to really hate Sony to not consider it a brilliant investment for bluray viewing...imo. :)

    Don't buy a PS3, its shit.

    Ive got a standalone BD player and 360. "PS3 Media player" or whatever the software's called has streamed everything from my PC to my TV throught the 360 with no issues.

    So there really is no incentive to buy what will essentially disappoint you.

    :)

    This is one of the dumbest threads I have ever seen.

    I'm not a big fan of Sony's hardware, never had particularly good experiences with them in the past. Except for a Radio Alarm clock that I have had for around 15 years and as good as the day I bought it.

    But the PS3 is a damn good BR Player
    It can be kept up to date with latest standards via firmware updates
    You can use it stream content from your PC (from personal experience, by that I mean MY OWN experience, not saying it's the same for everyone, it was easier to setup the PS3 streaming than it was the 360)
    It can play a wide range of online content including easy access to iPlayer
    Also, as a little side bonus it can play games. Only a total fucking mong wouldn't see that as a bonus.

    For what you are after it, it makes NO sense not to buy one. And throw away the pads?? WTF?? That's even dumber than what you said in the OP.

    Seriously, unless you are 14 I would be pretty ashamed of what appears to be nothing more than some kind of stupid fanboyism.
