Im looking to get a PS3 for its many uses, but Im curious, I have a standard def CRT with componant input, would I be able to play a blu-ray movie allbeit in standard def? And if so, would it still look better than a DVD due to better encoding and much higher bitrate?
Thx!

It would look a bit better for the reasons you stated, if you're renting then you might as well but it would be madness to pay double/triple/quadruple the DVD price or whatever the current premium is for it.

um...not 100% sure

Its a Toshiba 32ZD26P which allows me to play NTSC and even features NTSC progressive scan, would that be 60Hz?
