Re: 1st post: Splurge on a 73" Diamond or go with the lower end model?
I totally disagree about the PS3, I own one and several other Blu-ray players, the PS3 is a good gaming system, and it does play Blu-rays, but it is the worst BD player I own, both from a video and audio standpoint. It is better than an SD DVD player, but not as good and the better standalone units.
That said, if you will use the gaming, it is a deal and will get you going for now.
