Default BD Player Shootout!

I came across this great article which reviews the Panasonic and Samsung BD players and compares them against the PS3. A must read. Click here.

Good post. Good read. Although he is the first I've heard state that the fan was noisy (as all other reviews I've read say the fan is stunningly quiet), it appears the PS3 is one fantastic machine.

Thanks for the info.

Indeed. As long as they sort out the 1080i issue by the time it launches in the UK I will have to purchase one. I think it will be my only BD player until the standalone players improve a lot imo!

I agree with the review 100% having owned two of the three tested models. My only problem is what was said about the fan noise...I'm thinking, what fan noise? The PS3 startup is similar to my tv--the fan starts with a little umph and then slows to a quiet whisper. My 360 is leaps and bounds louder in terms of noise (fan or disc read).

It is my biggest bugbear for the system, I don't mind when playing games so much, but I am concerned it will bug me when watching HD-DVD's.
