The Blu Ray capability is fantastic, tho I have very little to compare it to since I have never owned a Blu Ray player either. I figured I would fork over an extra $100 for the ps3 as compared to a dedicated blu ray player and I have no regrets about that. The ps3 loads blu rays up quick but much slower than dvds. I think that's just the blu ray discs themselves. There hasn't been any stuttering during playback or any hardware issues at all. The controller and menu during playback tho is confusing and not very intuitive. Keep in mind that unless you are using the dedicated blu ray remote, which I am not, then the controller is going to feel like exactly that: a controller. Selecting mennus can sometimes be confusing. My natural reaction is to hit the "O" to go back in a menu but when I do that it asks if I want to leave the movie. You have to hit "square" which feels a little odd to me. Other than that and some other small UI improvements I would like, it plays it great.
Also, if you have this hooked up with a newer receiver and you want to play HD audio, read this: [...] Helped me out a lot!
The PS3 is quiet compared to the old Xbox 360's (I don't know about the newer ones), and has been working well for me for over 2 years. Playing Blu-Ray's is a plus and I have it hooked up to a 50" LED TV with a surround sound system.
A few things I'm not so crazy about are the feel of the controller and the battery on the controllers. I have somewhat larger hands than the average person, and the PlayStation controller is less more comfortable to hold than the Xbox controller, but since I hardly play any games on it anymore, this doesn't matter that much. Another thing is I with the controller had a removable battery, so that if the battery in the controller stops holding a charge, you can't replace the battery, you either have to replace the entire controller or keep it plugged into the PS3 all the time.
As of writing this Amazon has released a PS3 app that allows me to stream even more. Now I can use Pandora, Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon to fill all my media needs. I own all three consoles, and PS3 is now my favorite (due to Blu-Ray and streaming), while Wii is now collecting dust practically. The only thing I wish it had was an IR receiver to allow use with the Harmony One remote without buying a receiver (sold separately), but otherwise am completely happy with it.
