Blu Ray Player

My daughter wants to buy a Blu Ray player from her birthday money.

She has picked out the Samsung BD-P1500.

Has anyone got one of these and could comment on its abilities or could suggest an alternative in the £220-250 bracket.

Here is a Blu Ray comparison site click here and a Blu Ray Forum click here you might get some ideas from them.

For a little bit more than £250
click here she could get a Playstation 3, this has a Blu Ray player in it.

For the bit extra she would have the ability to play games and play Blu Ray disks, whereas if she went for a standalone Blu Ray player she would only be able to play Blu Ray disks. :-)

Thanks to you both.

I am having a good look through the two links.

I have seen that as a Blu-Ray player the PS3 is very well recommended, my daughter however does not like the size and is unwilling to pay the extra £80 as she has no interest in gaming.

The PS3 can be got for £290 now, but like you have said "she has no interest in gaming" probably not the best choice for her then.

I thought the below link would be helpful to you. click here

I always find the above site to be very helpful/informative and has helped me to make my mind up on several occasions. :-)
