PS3.

Don't play games much, but love how fast it loads and it does a great job of streaming stuff from my Mac.

Either of you try Transporter 3? Mine wouldn't play. I'm assuming it's firmware but I'm out of CD-r's so I have to get to the store before I can upgrade and check.

Re: What Blu-ray Player(s) Do You Use?

I have the PS3, just because when i got it, the cheapest i found a player was 399(maybe 379) and that how much the 3 was. And I was going to update my PS2 with a Xbox 360 and then I decided just kill 2 birds so I went ahead chose the PS3 40 GB.
I just moved my smaller 1080P tv in our bedroom so when i can afford it I'll pick up a Panasonic player(to go with my new Panny plasma) and move the PS3 in the bedroom, just so i can actually watch blu-ray discs in there.
Its funny you mentioned off-brands models. Not too long ago I sold a guy a 46" XBR 6, a $500 sony surround sound, a $400 universal remote and then for some reason he went with the $200 Slyvania Blu-ray player.

LG GGC-H20L HD DVD/Blu-ray combo drive. Voting wrong as I chose "LG". Meh. But anyway, I'm kinda waiting for the right Blu-ray player to come along. Almost got the BD55 but considering how fast electronics are being pumped out with little forethought, I'm content in waiting till the end of this year and into next year as well.

I'm using the PS3 for now. Whenever the Oppo Blu-ray player becomes officially available, I'm all over it.

Re: What Blu-ray Player(s) Do You Use?

Does anyone know when the profile 2.0 blu-ray players with wi-fi will be available?
I know the PS3 does this, but I already have one in the bedroom and am sure my wife would not be keen on buying a second one, especially if the wi-fi enabled players are cheaper.

Wish I could change my answer to the Samsung BD-P2550. Traded my Panasonic for it today. Very much worth the upgrade, even if for Pandora alone. That is awesome.

I see the Samsng BD-P3600 comes with a wireless dongle. Is anyone running this unit yet? The netflix and pandora features plus wireless option make this unit very tempting.
