The new Pioneer looks good, but I just can't understand why anyone would consider anything other than a PS3.
It's got full feature support, Profile 2.0, it decodes all the HD audio formats, it does 24p, the Bluetooth remote is excellent, it's a very good upscaler, it has the least playback problems, it's easily upgradable and frequently updated over the web, it comes with a hard-drive, doubles as a games machine and a media server, the video and audio quality is as good as any other player.... AND... it's one of the cheapest Blu players on the market !!!
The only downsides are a lack of analogue audio outputs, very slight fan noise, and the rack-unfriendly design. But these won't keep me from making it my next player...
