Default Re: Criterion Collection uses PS3 as reference Blu-ray player

The Sony PS3 has been acknowledged by many to be one of the best BD players on the market, and with the added bonus of being a game console, an absolute bargain.
You must have had a bad unit or not set up right, the VP-50 Pro is highly reviewed and the technology it has is in the Oppo 983 dvd player which is known to be about the best (video quality) you can get. To say the PS3 has the processing power (and implementation) of a $3500 video processor is silly, just look at the upconverting capability and HQV tests.
