im somewhat impressed. i honestly cant tell any diff between off/normal/full screen upconverting. double definately looks better, but it places a border around the entire image. even though it helps, hd-dvd blows it out the water (used a combo disk of you me and dupree). this is my 1st upconverting player so looks like its still hd/bd for me in that regards.
media streaming is still severely lacking. the interface is just too cluttered. it doesnt seem to be using id3 tags very well, and it doesn't place the songs in any real order as far as i can tell. you can't play full albums yet, and once you go back to the xmb, the music. stops. you cant do the cool slideshow like if the imgs are on the ps3 hard drive (but thats not that big of deal). lastly most my vids are in a unsupported format, but thats not sony's fault honestly.
for dvd playback ps3>360
for media playback 360>ps3
sony still has a ways to go, but .81, .82, .83, etc hopefully will fix some of these issues. they're getting there...
ima try some ps1/ps2 games later and see whats really good
