Default 20gb PS3 vs. Sharp BDHP20U

Hi, everyone. Quick question:

I have found both of these players for $300 and I'm wondering which is the better choice considering these factors...

PS3 20gb:

1. I DO NOT play video games, so that's a non-issue. Is there anything I should know though about BD playback on these 20gigs? Does it run fine?

2. This is a used item.


Sharp BDHP20U:

1. I have a 32" Visio, NOT a Sharp player. Is this player any good with other TVs? (My TV isn't even 1080p, so I can't be considered a complete Hi-Def enthusiast, but I just want a player that plays all BRs and has good tech support.)

2. I can get it new with 5 free BRs.


THANKS FOR ANY HELP!

Hey man I have a 20 gig PS3 that I use solely as a blu ray player. Fast load times, no problems @ all w/ any disc I have ever put in it. Works great for me. However I've just upgraded my receiver and I am missing dts-hd ma, but in the future we'll probably get an update and not have to buy a new player, just a download. Hope this helps!

Like Eric said, it's a pretty good BD player. Should you want to use the unit as a media hub (other downloads), you can easily swap the measly 20GB HDD with a large 2.5" SATA.
