When Sony’s PlayStation 3 was first introduced, it was the most full-featured Blu-ray player—and happened to have a great price.
At $399 and compatible with Profile 2.0, I argued that the PS3 was the best Blu-ray player for your home theater.
But that was in May of last year. And times have certainly changed.
Now, there’s a plethora of Profile 2.0 players available on the market from a number of manufacturers. Many of them are priced close to or below the PS3, which has remained at $399 for the base level.
If Profile 2.0 doesn’t matter to you, there are even more Blu-ray players available at even cheaper prices.
So, that leads us to ask: Is the PlayStation 3 still the best Blu-ray player?
