Default Blu Ray Player Differences?

I've been considering buying a bluray player soon, and I really wanted to know what was the differences in the sony blu ray players and the ps3?

Would the standalone players have any difference in quality that'll make it worth purchasing over the ps3? Help will be much appreiciated.

It could, depending on what you get. For Blu ray, most all PQ would be pretty close, of course, depending on the movie. Meaning if you took the same movie and played it in all the Blu ray players and on the same tv, the picture would be nearly identical.

BUT...the Samsung BD-P1200 with it's Reon processor does a bit of a better job in my opinion on both Blu ray movies and is far superior over all the others in up-converting sd dvd's. This player is the best up-converting player out there for sd dvd's too due to the Reon processor. I have my 1200 hooked up to a Pioneer Elite PRO-FHD1 plasma monitor by HDMI.

A review of the 1200 is here...http://reviews.cnet.com/video-player...-32391011.html

Hope this helps you abit. I'm not anti Sony or anybody else. I just wanted to get the best PQ player out ther and when I got my Samsung BD-P1200 a few months ago, it was, and still is in my opinion. I've heard that the new Sony is good, but I believe that the Samsung still has a leg up on the Sony. Also, chech out AVS forums for LOTS of first hand users opinions on the Samsung, Sony and others.
Good luck.

A primary difference between a standalone player and the PS3 is that a standalone player will have 5.1 analog audio outputs, while the PS3 does not.

Spidey...which one ? The new Sony or the Samsung ? As I posted above, I have the Samsung and love it. Best out there at the moment. New 3rd generation Sammys are due out in Sept. I believe.

Sorry, it's the Samsung P1200. It dropped way down in price.

Personally I'm waiting for the newer players that will be 1.1 compliant and can hopefully pass bitstream over HDMI. I'm hoping that will be around the holidays.

I have both Blu ray and HD. No problems with either of the players I have. Why limit yourself to the movies you can see by having one type of player. Personally I was only going to go with Blu ray, but then I saw the great movies that are on HD, not to mention that I could get my A2 for $299.00 at the time. So now I have both and BB online is a great place to get all of the movies you want to see.
