Well, it's good that your 2010CI is playing well, there have been some issues with that too
- that's the same vintage as the 83 (2009, 2010).
The PS4 is actually having some video teething problems
, not with regular blurays at 24p but with other types of video (1080i, etc). It seems to be taking a step back from the PS3 as far as video quality, and fails to live up to the PS3 or standalone bluray players. So objectively, its PQ except for USA 24p content is not up to a quality standard.
From that article:
"Unsurprisingly with all of this in mind, there is no provision made for film mode deinterlacing (detecting the presence of film content stored in an interlaced signal). Just so it’s clear, here are the tests from the 60hz tests on the Spears & Munsil
- 2-2 (30fps inside 60i): Fail
- 2-2-2-4: Fail
- 2-3-2-3 PF-T (24fps inside 60i with MPEG metadata): Fail
- 2-3-2-3 (24fps inside 60i): Fail
- 2-3-2-3: Fail
- 2-3-3-2: Fail
- 3-2-3-2-2: Fail
- 5-5: Fail
- 6-4: Fail
- 8-7-8-7: Fail
- Time-adjusted: Fail
Likewise, for European users watching European content (BBC TV shows are an obvious example), it’s worth knowing that the Blu-ray format does not have provision for 25p, so all of this content is encoded at 50i, and accordingly falls foul of the PS4′s lack of deinterlacing capabilities. With 1080i HD content, this is actually not a gigantic problem, and we imagine most users won’t notice owed to the high HD resolution masking the resolution loss. It’s still poorer quality than many standalone players, however
Hopefully Sony fixes that (or has fixed, don't have a PS4) and the PS4. improves as a media player.
In the end, it's your preference. I've had issues with the 83 on one disk that I played (Monsters U), but since I wanted to upgrade to the 103D and did, it is not an issue for me now.
The 83 is doing a fine job as a bedroom music center / player for me, so as far as movie content, it's not an issue any more.
