Question PS3 as a 3D player vs. standalone 3D Blu-ray player

Is there any difference in picture quality on the PS3 when used as a standalone 3D Blu-ray player or do the new players that were built after 3D came out deliver a better p/q for a3D experience?

No, but you will not get HD Audio for 3D with the PS3 like you will with a standalone player.

However the updates for the ps3 will defiantly work, where as a stand alone player will have much much less support or slower updates.

That's old....standalones now have wifi and many have great update support. No HD audio on the PS3 is a lot to give up for 3D capablity.

I was coming here to look into the same question.. I have a newer PS3, but, I'm also getting a 3D blu ray player.. Samsung BDC6800. It was bundled with the 50" 8000 series Samsung plasma TV I ordered.

I was thinking about dumping it off on someone through Craigs List or Ebay.. but, I may only bring in less than $200 and for that I may just as well use it for the wi fi and better audio maybe?

I have compared my Samsung BD-C6900 standalone 3D player with my 3D enabled PS3 watching Avatar 3D. Big difference! I'm keeping the standalone 3D player specifically for watching 3D movies and using the PS3 for my 3D games. What I noticed was how much more comfortable 3D viewing was on the Sammy than the PS3. The 3D picture on the PS3 had a more contrasting flicker while my standalone was smoother more natural in the transition of 3D effects. 3D was more relaxing on the eyes with the Sammy. I got the standalone player free bundled with my Samsung 3D TV, contemplated selling it at first but after my comparison, I'm keeping it.

I was reading your sig and was wondering how you received Avatar in 3D this early without buying a Panny?...

Ebay/Amazon?

I recently ordered a Panasonic 3D plasma bundle with the Avatar kit and a 3D Blu-ray player (DMP-BDT100P) I already have a PS3, but it sounds like I should keep the 3D BD player for 3D movies? My only problem is that I only have so much room for HT components, and I already have a standalone region free BD player that I need to keep for playing imports. I'm not sure where I'm going to put another BD player, but if it's significantly better than the PS3 at playing 3D movies, I guess I will keep it.

Canada Ps3 vs Samsung c6900

Hi guys,

I have a Ps3 and a Samsung BDc6900 hooked to my Sammy un46c7000. I have so far found that the 3d image has been more consistent on the PS3. That is to say, less ghosting and less playing with the 3d settings on the tv to line up the view. Now I know there's no such thing as 1.4 hdmi cables but I wonder if this could be due to the fact that I'm using a PS3 hdmi cable? Anyone know if this is considered a high speed cable or if I should use a different cable which is labelled as high speed?

Or perhaps, the PS3 is better than the c6900

The PS3 has the advantage of playing 3D downloadable content from the playstation store. 13 3D movie selections are available for rent and/or purchase.

Are there any differences with regards to ghosting that others have noticed in comparing the ps3 to other players? I not what I have discovered but would like to here others thoughts first.

My personal experience with the PS3 is the longer I let the PS3 warm up(ie. let it play a 3d movie before I watch it) the less the ghosting I notice if any at all. If I just start it up and watch a movie right then and there I do notice ghosting. With my Sammy 3DBD player I don't have to let it warm up. I have noticed that some movies, and even some parts in some movies ghosting appears, you can tell when that happens it was either rushed or cheaply done. The worst movie I have as far as ghosting is Monster House, the best is either the Shrek 1-4 or Avatar. My tv set up is as follows
Sammy 55" 7000-PS3
Sammy 55" 9000-Sammy 6900 BD Player

^ What kind of ps3 do you have. I have a 120gb ps3 slim and running the filma head of time does not help with theghosting at all (I watched Monster vs Aliens back to back [it's a long story]) .

I use a panasonic DMP-BDT300 with my lg lg px950. When I use the pansonic I get less ghosting, although it doesn't remove all ghosting. For example at the start of Legend of the Gaurdians as the bird flys through the first logo on my ps3 I get ghosting around the edges, but do not on the pansonic. I am going to compare the two some more and shall let you know my findings. (I'm using the same chords etc to ensure the player is the only difference in comparing the two).

This is of course before I consider that the ps3 doesn't do lossless sound.

I have an older 240GB PS3, unfortunately I cannot use the Audioquest Carbon HDMI to its full potential with the PS3, so it may be that, but I know its not the tv, since I can either have it off while the PS3 plays through a 3d movie or I can watch a cable channel while the PS3 plays through a 3d movie it makes no difference. Only when I dont let the PS3 do its warm up will there be ghosting.

I started doing some comparison last night. It seem like my Panasonic DMP-BDT100 provided better PQ than the FAT PS3. I'm using AudioQuest Chocolate and Pearl on both player. Image on BDT100 seem to be more defined, which help in producing better overall 3D immersiveness. Color is fantastic.

I'll continue to test some more. That could only mean rewatching my whole 3D collection all over again. Sound fun!

I just checked out the free 3D trailers on VUDU. 3D PQ is OK, but only 720P. It will be great if they can provide 5.1 surround and 1080P for 3D streaming. Around 9 Mbps is required for HDX (1080P) 2D with 5.1 from VUDU.

Requested UI 2.0 update from VUDU support.

Only a handful of 3D selections are available for purchase at this time.

My Bravia TV and BDP S570 do not have VUDU service available. Only my PS3 does.

This blog answers most of the questions abt the 3D service: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/...vie-streaming/
