Default How is the Quality of 3D on the PS3?

My new 65" VT30 Panasonic arrives on Monday. I'm wondering if I should get a new 3D blu-ray player or just use my PS3?

How's the quality of 3D on the PS3? Would the 3d be better on an actual 3D player? If there is a difference, is it marginal or significant? Thanks!

I know you lose any lossless audio, if that is a concern to you.

The quality of the 3D video playback on the PS3 is outstanding. The one drawback as mentioned above is it won't pass lossless audio when playing 3D movies. Depending on how exotic your surround setup is that may or may not be an issue

Comparing it to the Panasonic 3D 300 series, for Blu-ray discs I have not noticed and difference. The Panasonic does do a slightly better job upconverting DVD discs. Also while playing 3D movies the PS3 currently cannot do BD-J (Java). I don't believe this should be a problem since this was known at the time Blu-ray 3D discs were first introduced and since PS3 Blu-ray makes up a large proportion of Blu-ray players.

Thank you. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

I guess I'll stick with the PS3 for now. Any other input is welcome.

While I have yet to try 3D on a standalone player, thus far I've been more than satisfied with the visual quality the PS3 outputs, you won't be disappointed!

the ps3 is not as good as a blu ray player. Put the spears & munsil blu-ray in them and you will see the ps3 will look worse. But i use the ps3 as my 3d blu-ray player. I plan on getting a 3d blu-ray player later this year. also i dont like having to use 90 watts of power to play a blu-ray when my blu-ray player uses 15 watts

I have the same Panny plasma, and have a PS3 & Oppo BDP-93. I feel the Oppo gives a bit cleaner pic, along with much better audio.

The ps3 does lossless audio, just not Dolby TrueHD when playing 3D which is only on a few release's.

It plays DTS Master audio fine,playing 3D or not.

There's likely a difference but I bet it's marginal.

It can't play DolbyTrueHD in 3D mode, though most 3D titles are in DTS-HD(Transformers, Kung Fu Panda 2 are Dolby though).

If you think it's worth the money for "perfection" then go for it. It will be an upgrade.

But I still use my PS3 for 3D and everything looks great.

3D games aren't very good on the PS3. I suspect that will change with the PS4. PC is miles better for 3D games if that is something your are interested in.
