Default Okay I decided to take one for the team!

Okay everybody, my PS3 finally overheated because I use it to do everything. Watch movies and dvd's and play videogames and even surf the web when I dont feel like sitting at my computer desk. Even the fan I put on the system didn't help. So I'm sending it back to sony to take care of the problem. So, I decided, using my mom's computer in another room, to buy the BD-UP5000 early. I'm sorry I know there are bugs to work out and some people are having problems but I need entertainment when I'm home and not studying or working or hanging with friends. So I'm gonna see if there are any problems with the unit I just bought. Yup, I think of you all as my HD-friends and we are all one team. Yes some of us back one side exclusively and the other well.... the other. But still we are all into HD and that's the thing we have in common. So once that baby arrives, I will have to do a LOT of movie and dvd watching of both formats and I have a LOT of movies on both formats not to mention a LOT of DVD's. So yes I will take the fall (as well) for you all. I'm gonna take one for the team!

So I will let you know how it is. I should get it around the 2nd week of January since I just ordered it now.

I for one am certainly appreciative. Love that "take one for the team."
that's a great way to put it. lol. I couldn't wait any longer and decided fuck it and got the bd-30 last night at BB. God I hope it works ok. It's so sad to lay down $500 and worry about whether the component you just bought will even perform its main purpose. But hey, that's the world of Blu-Ray for you. I feel like such a sucker it makes me sick. :-#
But I am now OFFICIALLY NEUTRAL baby!!!!!, and can now (hopefully) watch my 10 Blu-Ray's.

Tell me about it! LOL. It's been a VERY long wait. I haven't got it all set up yet. I'll be giving a report for sure once I've watched a few discs. First up "The Seventh Seal." =p~

uhh let's see: "Seventh Seal", "Oldboy", "A Few Good Men", "Cars", "Pirates 2", "Hellboy", "Spider-man 3", "20,000 Miles To Earth", "Close Encounters", "The Fly", "Fifth Element" and "Casino Royale." I think that's it, so not that many. There honestly are not that many more I want right now. There are some titles I will get if they are redone for sure. I'm waiting for all the older stuff. That's my main interest.
