PS3 BD Playback Very Nice
Now that the PS3 is in people’s hands, people have been testing its capabilities. One person over at AVS Forum reported his findings when using the PS3 as a BD player.
How long does it take to boot up? It “takes 10 seconds to boot up the movie. the ps3 loading time from power on to menu is about 4 seconds. so total 14 seconds“.
What about picture quality? “[I] also i tested today the samsung player with the ps3 with the samsumg 46 inch plasma player we have at work. and i can tell you the ps3 picture quality is far better then the samsung. i am truelly surprised. remeber 8th below is soft looking. well playing the movie with the ps3 it totall renders the soft image away. and show a very natural movie display.not that it will be raor sharp. but natural looking image. how i would expect the movie to look like. the movie picture i was hoping to see.”
The thread has more about other movies, it makes for an interesting read.
Oh, and one more thing. HDMI to DVI? Works just fine.
