4.0 out of 5 stars Stealth never looked this good!, January 11, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stealth [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Let me just put this simply: 3D!

I tested this BD on my PS3 via component cables to my 29" CRT TV, back to back with the DVD version. The result was very obvious. Although I didn't really see anything incredible when I played the BD, I was thoroughly suprised when I switched back to the DVD. I was asking where did all the colours go. I was asking why everything were so flat. I was asking if this is the power to BD. The contrast gave you a sense of depth to the picture, making everything 'pop-out' from the screen. The clarity were awesome and there were no artifacts anywere. The weakness? It looked so good that it looks fake. Welcome to the digital edge where everything is super-enhanced and nothing is organic anymore.

On the sound front, the Dolby Digital track was exactly the same as the one on the DVD. The PS3 doesn't support PCM 5.1 via optical, so I couldn't test the Uncompressed PCM track.

Other than that, there's nothing much to the BD. I only bought it because I wanted a title to compliment my X-Men III, which is good on sound, but bad on picture. Stealth is the title to test out BD picture quality if you ever needed one.

I have to disagree about the comment on the PS3. I have it hooked up to my Pioneer TRE-D800 digital cordless transmitter via optical cable and the 5.1 surround comes out fine over the headphones. The sound is crisp and really delivers true surround and really immerses you into the movie experience which it did not from the old dvd format. Now even the old dvd format sounds so much better. I went to Best-Buy and struggled over what kind of player I wanted to upgrade to. There are players now that do support both HD and Blue-ray formats but I decided on the PS3 because I wanted to play the upgraded games as well.

You're confusing PCM with Dolby Digital. The PS3 will pass the DD5.1 sound over the optical output, but the uncompressed PCM will only work via the HDMI.

I'd also be curious to know how you get "true surround" through headphones. Do you have extra ears in the back of your head? :)
