I noticed you mentioned there was no judder originating from the deck.


Now perhaps this is only an issue with, as you say, fast action scenes. But what about judder from those slow panning shots? I had thought this was to do with frame rates between the film and lcd tv's. But am I off the mark here?





On slow pans from my upscaling philips DVD deck I get very noticeable judder on my Sony lcd w5500. I can only remove this by ensuring that the 100Hz function (motionflow in sony talk) is switched on.

The Sony BDP-S360 is available around the £100 mark online right now, and was even at £90 in one store. A very tempting alternative if you're on a budget.

I would like the facility to play discs, access internet content and stream media over a home network. This and the LG look tempting, but is one better off with a PS3? (Not sure I share the enthusiasm for the blue light underneath - does it also come with fluffy dice, a body kit and deafenning bangin house music?)

@ Nicholas: Well, the PS3 offers extras - for example the built in hard drive and the ability to play games as well as full internet access including the BBC iPlyer app. The Slim is also much quieter than the old PS3. I got my PS3 slim 120GB for £200 but I already have a dedicated BR player so it was purely to play games.





The controller does not make for a good remote so you would probably also have to factor in for the price of the Bluetooth remote (around the £10-£15 mark) and more if you want to use a Logitech Harmony with it...





The picture and sound quality of a dedicated player will be slightly better, though. I guess it depends if you ever want to play games or not and would use the HDD space and full Internet access.

Apparently the PS3 will support Blu-ray 3D, so that is worth bearing in mind if you're considering a Blu-ray player. However, as the PS3 doesn't have an HDMI 1.4 port, I don't know to what extent it will support 3D, but then the manufacturers (and media) aren't being very forthcoming as to whether HDMI 1.4 will be a significant requirement. Does anyone actually know?
