My husband and I have recently bought the Toshiba HD E1 HD DVD player for £449.99. We have had it for a over a week now and it is amazing. The picture is out of this world. We have already got seven HD dvds to watch on it. We had them before we got the player. Yes that is sad. We are so impressed with it that we can't wait to also get a Blu-Ray machine. The reason for this posting is this.... What would be better? The Samsung BD P1000 or the PS3 for half the price? We aren't game lovers so would only be getting the PS3 to play Blu-Ray dvds on. Is is going to be better to pay the extra and get a stand alone Blu-Ray player like the Samsung or get the PS3? Could you please help?
