                Features—Does it provide 3D and/or streaming capabilities? Which features are useful and which are not?
                Yes it provides 3D and/or streaming capabilities.I have not used the 3D as I haven't got a 3D HDTV.I rent and/or purchase blue ray movies and bluray Music Video's.I love DTS Master Audio.I also Like Dolby's lossless version.

                2) Setup—How did you connect it to your system, directly to the display or to an AVR or pre/pro? How easy is it to set the correct aspect ratio?

                  My tried and true second generation PlayStation 3 is a great Blu-ray player on top of everything else it does. Having the entire processing power of a gaming console certainly doesn’t hurt when it comes time to crunch Blu-ray image data. I keep the most up to date firmware installed in it so it still continues to be a thoroughly modern Blu-ray even though it hasn’t actually been new for quite a few years now. Since the updates never stop coming from Sony, I fully expect that performance edg...

                    I've owned my 80GB "Fat" PS3 since Nov of 2008. The unit has performed very well since I've owned it. Sound quality is excellent, video quality is likewise on my 103" Cinescope Screen and Panasonic AE3000u projector. I've yet to find a disk that it will not play. Overall it is an excellent all around player, especially when you add the value of having a media server, bluray player, internet capabilities and the ability to update the firmware via online.

                    If it ever dies, I will likely pu...

                      The Playstation 3 is easily one of the best blu-ray players in the market. While my model (the 80GB) is no longer available for purchase, it holds up as well now as it did on the day I purchased it five years ago. Whether you want to watch DVDs, Blu-rays, or stream video, the Playstation 3 delivers and at the highest quality. Additionally, with Sony's constant software support of non-intrusive, occasional updates, this system should last me another five years at the very least. So let's start w...

                        I've had the 80GB PS3 for four years. We use it for video games, Netflix, DVDs and watching movies on our remote 6TB NAS. I don't load anything on the included HD so No comment there. When we finished our basement home theatre with a 120" screen, we used the PS3 to power it via our Yamaha receiver. Great picture and sound.

                        I had purchased a Sony BDP BX110. It was extremely frustrating to associate my Netflix account. The remote is "line of sight" infrared, not Blue Tooth like the PS3......
