Default Is the PS3 loud like the 360???

I was thinking about getting a ps3 for blu-ray, but not sure how loud they are. I just sold my 360 add on because i feel the 360 is way to loud when watching movies, gaming i dont mind for some reason, but watching films it was annoying. So is the ps3 loud? quiet as a standard dvd player?

It's a very quiet system. Well-designed and built.

Not quite dead silent. You can hear a very faint whirring of the fan every now and then, but hardly. It is a very good BD player.

The 360 is way louder to me. But the PS3 has a fan so it isn't quiet like a standard DVD player....cause there's a hard drive in there.

I only hear it on start up. After that, I can't hear anything. (I don't have a 360, so I couldn't say if it is better.) But yes, as quiet as a DVD player after it has done the initial start up. (And even that is not that loud.)

Take it easy,

the 360 sounds like a freaking microwave

ps3 is stealthy quiet when I boot it up and use it for a bit, but I noticed after I watch dvd movies especially it starts too amp up the fan but it's still much quieter than the 360s

I noticed it amps up the fan when I watch dvds but not as much when I watch blu ray

I had the 360 hd add on, and it was noticeably loud during playback. My PS3 is very, very quiet.
