My parents don't really know how to buy for me, so I asked for the steelbooks and the Indiana Jones set, and got the rest themselves, to my surprise

They also got me a lovely Breakfast Club jumper, which is my favourite film

Sure I'll put a picture up tomorrow, but to be honest it's not a special set-up. I'm currently decorating my room so I've stripped all the wallpaper off the walls and I need to pull all the flooring up. Room looks pretty much like a tip.

43 Samsung PS43E490 3D Plasma. The Blu-ray Player is the Toshiba BDX3200 3D Blu-ray Player. Once I have decorated my room I will put the TV onto the wall instead of on the black unit it's on now, and once my broken down wardrobe on the other side of the room is disposed of I'm going to move my Blu-ray shelves there so they can all stand together instead of apart, I prefer when they're all together.

I put it in my PS3 and it worked perfectly, haven't tried it out on the regular Blu-ray player I use though.

Thanks I agree, I've used it quite a lot in the past 2 days and it's been an absolute dream. My previous Blu-ray player was beyond annoying, if you paused a Blu-ray for more than about 2 minutes it goes on a screensaver, then when I try playing the disc it just wouldn't play so I'd have to turn it off then turn it back on. This Blu-ray player gives me an option to take the screensaver off and I've kept things paused for ages and they've never made me have to turn off the player and turn it back on. Seriously happy with this player

Got Minority Report and Scarface Steelbooks which I've been wanting for ages. Didn't ask for any other films its easier to buy them myself and less complicated than trying to explain which version of a film to get.
UK Steelbooks only.

PS3 Platinum: Assassins Creed 2, Bioshock, God of War: Ascension, God of War 3, Jak and Daxter, Mafia II, Saints Row The Third Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

To be honest I've never noticed. Is there anything wrong with HD Ready? Does it not play my Blu-rays at 1080p like my old one which was Full HD? The picture quality still looks phenomenal on the TV.

It will still play your BD's in 1080p at 24hz but it will only display them at 720p which is 1280 x 720 instead of the 1920 x 1080. Pixel wise it's 921600 for 720p and 2073600.

There would be a difference if you use your PC with your TV but depending on your distance from the screen you might not notice a huge difference and as you've said you're very happy with the quality. So if you watch TV in-bed then you're about ten feet away. You'd probably benefit more from 1080p if you sit at the bottom of your bed.

BDs I got this year:
Conan the Barbarian (the 'new' one)
13 Assassins
Sarah Jane Adventures: Season 4
and, at *last*
Game of Thrones: Season 1

The of my lovely shiny discs were DVDs:
Hustle: Season 7
Doctor Who: Remembrance of the Daleks SE
James May's Toy Stories
Wheels on Meals

I'm pretty sure none, or maybe only one, as actually available on BD so all is well

Also, due to having a very generous wife, I got a Kindle Fire HD so I now have a use for all those digital copies (that I hope haven't expired!)

My wife also got Downton Abbey: Series 3 on BD

Hope everyone got what they wanted!

Yes viewing distance and screen size is important for quality difference.
For 1080P noticeable difference on a 40 - 42" screen you need to be around 5 feet to 6 feet away.
