Is the PS3 still considered a good Blu-Ray DVD player?
I'm moving to a rural area, and losing my KILLER digital cable with thousands of channels I don't watch, plus On-Demand. For awhile at least, I'm gonna be stuck with something like 1.5Mbps downstream speed, so I don't think reliable streaming of movies is going to be in my future.
In comes NetFlix DVD by mail... so I want to upgrade to Blu-Ray to take advantage of my bigass TV.
It used to be, I guess years ago, that the PS3 was considered one of the, if not the, best blu-ray not only because of the hardware, but the ability to upgrade firmware to keep up with any minor changes in tech.
I'm not really a gamer. Well, not now anyway. I was decades ago, and I guess I wouldn't mind becoming one in years henceforth, if something piqued my interest...but..
The real purpose of this is to play non-jittery blu-ray's on my 60" TV.
Is the PS3 still considered "very good" to "excellent", or has it fallen off it's perch?
