Default Transition Q.

I'm thinking of making the difficult transition to blu soon boys; any suggestions on players? Specifically, should I wait for those new July 08's or go with a PS? I'll probably be waiting until summer anyway, but it'd still be great to get some feedback.

Depends on what you want.

The PS3 is a decent all around player that can be upgraded to profile 2.0. It won't be able to bitstream the advanced audio codecs and for the moment can't do DTS-HD MA. If you have an older AVR, this would be a good option.

If you have a newer AVR, the Panny BD30 is the best as far as standalones are concerned. It has profile 1.1 if you don't need web connectivity and can bitstream all of the advanced codecs to a new 1.3HDMI AVR.

If you need it all, and can wait until summer the BD50 can do all the PS3 and BD30 features without the gaming. So, you get internal decoding and bitstreaming of all advanced codecs and you get 2.0 web connectivity.
