I currently have a PS3 that im fixing to sell. Im looking into a regular Player. What should I look for to compare and keep the picture I have with the PS3? Im looking into the Samsung BD-P1500 or the BD-P1600. I just dont want to loose the picture I have with the PS3. I dont even know if it will make a differance, I would think as long as it is a 1080p I would be good. But im not sure, I need some help from knowledgable people. Thanks in advance...

Just curious why you are getting rid of a perfectly good blu ray player and then some?

I dont use it for the gaming, I got a good offer on it. I figured I could sell, buy a player and still have some cash in hand.

I am in the same boat as you, I just picked up the samsung bd-p3600 and love it. The pandora and netflix options are cool. It also recognizes my ipod classic ao I can control my music through it. I also have the bd-p1600 in my bedroom and it does the same stuff.

the Sony S-550 is has the same blu-ray hardware that the PS3 does just not all the other features that the PS3 has.

yes selling my ps3 as well, no loss in picture just a little bit slower load time, talking seconds here really. I love samsung products though.

yes the sony blu ray players offer no real features though. The netflix on the samsung and lg players sold me on them.

I just dont wanna loose picture quality. Load time isnt an issue, especially if its only a few seconds. Thanks

never played with a ps3 however we have the sony s-550 and it is pretty bad @$$. love that thing. just dont like how when you press the menu button to see how long movie has been playing and how much time is left it only tells you time left on blue rays. that's the only thing i dont like about it but not that big of a deal

from what i read, looking into one soon, the ps3 is the best, i read somewhere that a guy working at a high end audio/video store tried a bunch and now he has 3 ps3's in his house, he doesnt play any games at all, but if the sony one mentioned above use the same stuff then i would go that route, i would look into things like software updates though, isnt the ps3 wireless? so if the others are not then you would have to unhook it and hook it up to a router i guess

Yes the one im lookin into requires a wire to router. It has the LAN connection on the rear.

personally i think your crazy, your going to be better off keeping the ps3, even if you never ever play a game on it having to play your blu rays, saving music, saving movies, web browser, and storing pictures, plus the extra features you can access on the ps3. unless you have lots of games and accessories to bundle with it, you will prolly spend every penny (if not more) on a decent player

well even then, i would still keep it

i personally love mine, i really dont go anywhere without it, i upgraded to a 500gb hd and now i have several movies stored on the drive, about 1000 songs, several photo albums on it, and prolly about 30 game date saves.

I know it has alot of features, Thats the main reason I wanted to keep it. I just dont see myself ever using them. I bought some games and played them maybe 10mins each. Sold them soon after. IDK...
