Default Afraid to update PS3 to 1.8

That about sums up how I feel about the latest update.

I have had no problems, not a single glitchorama with the PS3 at firmware 1.55. I've watched over 150 now & am afraid to download the latest firmware for it because I fear it may cause problems with BD playback.

What is your guys experiences so far with 1.8 ?
Any problems with BD playback?

Thanks!

No problems whatsoever. It does a world of good on PS/PS2 games and the media server feature is nice as well. And DVD upscaling is good.

No problems here...and this 1.8 version allows 720p Blu-Ray playback!
I don't see any reason not to update, the upscaling of DVDs is good,
and the upscaling/smoothing options for PS1 and PS2 games is welcome.

I felt the same way, but went ahead and installed it. I've been testing it ever since looking for bugs and have found none. This update adds so many useful features. This is one update that you don't want to miss.

The upconversion must be great... I'm either forced to buy a new TV with HDMI or rip my DVDs to up-convert them...way to go...

Works fantastic for me. My only issue is that I wish it would upconvert the 480i/p special features on Blu-ray discs. Probably will be addressed soon, when Sony realizes the featurettes on 10 year old DVDs look better now than brand new ones.

Thanks all!!

I downloaded it with no problems & tested out BD playback first because I am a nervous nelly. Than compared the upconversion to the Toshiba XA2 player.

Pretty much a wash.
