Someone told me that the PS3 slim is a good blu ray player to have, one of the better ones out there, for clarity and online capabilities, and can be compared to high end blu ray players. Would anyone compare buying a PS3 over an Oppo 93
Op, what did they have left as I may grab a PS3 to hold onto right now.
OPPO is definitely better. I own an oppo 83. but here are the differences...
ps3 a lot cheaper.
it is kind of future proof, as it receives updates. went from regular blu ray to 3d blu ray player. the updates can also be bad though, as they force you to update quite often and there are some people who get bricked consoles from an update.
you can access the ps3 exclusive library.
can be easily converted to play international dvds and blu rays with asimple mod (chip bought in ebay)
you can run mkv files and it has a better sound processor than the ps3 for running DTS HD Master audio and dolby digital. it has two hdmi outs in case you got a non 3D home theater receiver and a 3D television. it also has 7.1 analog outs if you dont have an hdmi receiver (you can pick up dts hd master this way on a receiver with 7.1 inputs).
If you're a movie buff and are an audiophile, i would recommend the oppo 93. but if you're just looking for a simple cheaper way to have a blu ray player to add to your hdtv, then go for a ps3. I own both, so it doesn't matter to me obviously. the ps3 runs dts hd master audio itself, but the difference is the sound processing between the two units. but it's hard to tell the difference between the two unless you've been using both units for a long long time. I prefer to use the Oppo quite often than the ps3 for watching movies, as it can read mkv files i download off the internet. and i also don't want to wear off the ps3 from just watching movies. it's a game machine for me. or a bedroom movie player on ocassion.
at my Sears - atlanta - today they hd no clue what I was talking about. had them scan an XBOx 360 250gb rang up full price. but the last time they did a Mark down like this, employees were clueless until the sales managers put the extra % off signs on the merchandise and put it out in the isle. going to check a different store on Monday
cumberland mall. i physically checked this morning and then I just called again to be sure and they were like all our stuff is full price. we aren't getting rid of those and we have tablets here already. ?? maybe they just don't know about it yet, hopefully that's the case because they have a few.
