    Looks like that samsung has no optical/hdmi in. That's the very minimum you want for use with the PS3.

    It doesn't have a separate DVD.. it's a sealed unit. With no optical audio in then you won't even get 5.1 from the PS3 (or your existing DVD player) and it'll sound a bit naff.. but if you're set on buying it anyway then nobody is going to stop you.

    As Tony said there is no digital optical or HDMI input. Without either of those it's not going to work anyway.

    In the price range the AV61 is the flexible. YOU NEED optical inputs.
    The AV61 has two optical and one co-ax.
    Co-ax = DVD, PC
    Optical = , DVD, PS3, SKY+/HD, XBOX, PC, Cable TV
    Also has direct 5.1 input for PC, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray
    If you are lucky an all-in-one MAY have one optical input and thats it. If it goes wrong you sling the lot away and it is NOT upgradable.

    Sound advice.
    I have a JVC THR-1 integrated DVD player/AMP. Apart from being crap - the DVD playback is borked. I only use the AMP for 5.1 from the PS3 now which thankfully has a decent DVD playback (compared to the THR-1).

    The next time - it's separates all the way....
