Default Ps3 noise?

I'm seriously considering getting a PS3 as a Blu-ray player, can anyone tell me how much noise it makes when playing movies?

Unless you sit right next to it with the sound turned down, you wont hear a thing.

I am waiting... been considering it but now I hear that the PS3 may not play Blu-ray Java. So I will wait it out.

PS3 does BD-J just fine.

And Cider, it is super quiet.

My PS3 is whisper silent.

Anecdotally I have found that if you put your PS3 inside an enclosed space it can be quite loud. So YMMV if it doesn't have open air to breath.

Mine is perfectly silent unless [email protected] is running, then the fan speeds up to keep it cool.

The PS3 has multiple speed fans.. if it gets too hot (enclosed spaces) the fans ramp up and can get quite loud...

mine is sitting in an open area and has been on for over a month straight.. it hasn't gotten loud once.

I measured, and from 12 feet away it only added 3db above my background room noise of 32 db, and that was with everything off. Depending on your display (RP or FP DLP or LCD for example) it won't be any louder than those fans.

Nothing at all as bad as the XB360.

It's quiet. The only thing that is considered "loud" of mine would be the 360 and I still don't even find that bothersome.

Some times the PS3 fans turn on - so its best to have good ventialation - but not near has bad as the 360. My HR20 also make noises.

I guess that is price you pay for new technology.
