Blu-ray update: I bought House of Flying Daggers - beautiful piece of work and it works. This kinda finally proves it for me - blu-ray is iffy - some work and when they do - its beautiful and some don't. I can't blame the PC or anything - While running blu-ray on House of Flying Daggers I didn't use more than 19 percent of my cpu resources! Even Meet the Robinsons didn't get pass 30 percent - It just wouldn't work right. I think I'm going to hold off on my blu-ray stand-alone purchase and wait for the format to settle or lose. I have blu-ray for under $200.00 (doesn't play every blu-ray but neither does the samsung - as I have made serveral enquiries and see several different reviews). I've paid the price for jumping early before (can anyone say mini-disc, early dvd adopter, and the worst of all Vista). I jumped on Vista just for HD/Blu-ray (purevideo HD was only availabe for Vista machines only until November - thank you Nvidia for finally releasing an XP driver) uninstalled Vista immediately and put it up until the future.

I try to take the path of least risk, if I get burned - at least it won't hurt that much. These are the pains of early adopters or as we call them in IT land "Beta testers" - Beta-Blu - that has a nice ring to it

Buy a stand alone player. It doesn't surprise me one bit that it crashes. PC's crash! That is what they do best. A computer is nothing more than a neccesary evil. It has no place in my home theatre

I'm sorry, more than likely I didn't make myself clear House of Flying Daggers did work in my PC - it worked extremely well! I'm holding off on the stand-alone due to the fact that the one in my price range still has some of the same problems that PC's have. I use my PC as a tester for new formats if possible. I would hate to spend money on a stand-alone beta (that would be like buying a Screenplay for Non-linear editing when you know how to use Avid, Ulead, Vegas or another inexpensive editor). I test the waters on the shallow end first - and after watching others 400.00+ mistakes, I may make a $150 mistake but its easier to get back to shore (Not enough life boats for me to totally sail with blu-ray ... yet).

I did the same thing with HD-DVD, attached it to my PC (that was a no brainer because it was free ) and went from there. From my experience, I would buy the $98.00 special at Wal-mart and I haven't regretted it since. I will eventually buy a stand-alone Blu-Ray - when the format stablizes across the board (interpetation - when all blu-rays play on all players - not just the PS3 - I don't need another gaming machine - I have enough). Blu-Ray is where HD-DVD was 7 months ago (at least with me). It will get there - patience is a virtue.

Well, if that is how long you are willing to wait, you are never going to buy!

Well, if that's the truth, I will be playing Blu-ray from my PC for a long time...why buy something with similar problems to the ones you already have?
