I've yet to see any difference between my PS3 and other BD players. Can you share what I am looking for?

So what your saying is those BD players would be a waste of money? would this be the same with the new Sony BDP-S790 . if so what model out their can beat the Sony PS3 for picture and sound quality if any?

I was writing that I didn't see the PS3 beat out other BD players. At first the PS3 had the distinction of being the fastest from the time you slip in the BD to when you could press play but today that's pretty fast and a non-issue.

The PS3 does offer other trick and the other BD players often have Smart TV features.

Sort of a toss up which way to go. But the BD player runs about 99 bucks and the PS3 a bit more so most folk will go with the BD players.
