The PS3 represents one of the best BD players I've used to date. It is fast, the image quality is excellent, and it supports more of the BD functions and features than just about any other player. The fact that it does this for nearly half the price of the other BD players out there is almost embarrassing, and rather disappointing when you think about it. As a standard DVD player, however, the PS3 may represent one of the worst progressive scan players I have ever tested. Surprising, considering its BD performance."
Looks like the 1.8x firmware adds this:
You can now upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation�2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution
You can now copy saved data from PlayStation® format software and PlayStation®2 format software to a memory card or a memory card (8MB) (for PlayStation®2).
You can now display images or play music or video files that are stored on a personal computer or digital video recorder with DLNA Media Server functionality over a network.
You can now connect a USB printer to print images.
You can now use remote play over the Internet.
Looks like Secrets should run another test.
