Neither of you seem to be saying the PC image will never be as good right ?
Its not that a PC with an internal BR player can't match a standalone player as it should be equal. The PC just has so many variables (Video card, Video card driver, CPU speed, operating system, BR drive, BR drivers, Software player, other software running in the background causing problem, and it goes on). For simplicity a stand alone is the easyest to get the best picture out of but there is no reason the PC can't match it. If your talking about any compressed files playing back they will never match a real BR/ or uncompressed ISO of a BR. The studios don't want you to play there material without all the added Junk and you can't get around it with a Standalone BR player where with a PC you are more in controll but it is a PITA to get to work and stay working.
