Thank you all for your help. I picked up a Panny 46" G15 at FS - haggled the price down a bit and got one of those new slim PS 3's to act as BD player and media center.

Shoot me for not reading though 10,000 posts, but i'm wondering if the blu ray player still doesn't output 720p, as has been suggested in some possibly out of date faqs. That is, is it still better...
