To me, the biggest deal the 85 offered was coming with the wireless dongle, which was important to me for Amazon and Nflix. I do not use the Analog audio, and bitstream everything to my Denon rcvr.
As far as speed, its been so long, I can't compare the 85 to the PS3.
As far as PQ goes, when I sold my PS3 and got a BD30, a couple of years ago, I noticed a better picture. When the BR players first came, the PS3 had about the best PQ and speed, but I think the standalones passed the PS3 on PQ a couple of generations ago. IMHO, its just not as sharp as the standalones.
