Default Re: Blu Ray thread!

I finally ended up getting a blu-ray player a couple of weeks ago. I love it so far. best thing about it is the USB hookup. I have 2 terabyte hard-drive where I have a 720 and 1080 mkv files watching it through the player.

If you want to watch movies, on it, it helps to get the playstation blu ray remote, which makes everything easier than the playstation controller.

I think the Xbox used have a much bigger advantage in terms of games when they first started, but that's not the case anymore. Developers have really unlocked the power of the PS3 now....(I think it was easier initially to develop for Xbox.)

I might turn around and get both because most my friends are on live...but it just seems like a waste to have all three systems because I sure in the hell don't have the motivation to play video games that much.

The thing is this will be my third box....kinda goes against my mantra to give Microsoft any more of my money after the 2nd time.

Internet connectivity is one feature than higher end bluray players have. Allowing you to stream movies from Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc. You can also watch YouTube on your TV and listen to music from Pandora. So there's a ton of internet apps.

Load time is another issue, Blu Rays have a lot of Data and take a while to load.

How well they up rez DVDs would be another issue.

Unless you have an outstanding TV, the image quality from the low end player of a good brand shouldn't be that noticeable from the high end player of that brand. And if you moving up from Standard Def, it will look great anyway.

Prices have come down, so that fairly cheap blu ray players today have more features than expensive ones from 3 years ago.

If I was buying today, I would make sure it supported the Internet Apps I wanted and it would be worth it to me to have WiFi built into the player.

CNET is usually pretty good for this sort of info.

So for my first order, all of them from the Criterion collection:

Carlos
Days Of Heaven
Fear and Loathing
Hunger
the Last Emperor
Naked
Paris, Texas
Playtime
Repulsion
Videodrome

$205

I might get something else instead of Playtime though, not sure I'll have to think about it. I have about 70 other BD's on my wishlist for Black Friday and Christmas.

I opted out of Repulson, Playtime and Naked for Blow Out [1981], Solaris [1972] and Gomorrah [2008]. All still Criterion and still a cool $205

Just got the Inglorious Basterds BD along with 18 others. I'll list them some other time. IB BD is so cheap for some reason. Not even because of the holiday, It's been $9.99 for a long time.
