Although movies on their own may not be enourmous, keep in mind that movies like "The Lord Of the Rings" were offered with up to 4 discs per movie with extras, and those movies themselves were extremely long.

Also, TV seasons are very common on DVD, and the ability to ship an entire season of something like Torchwood or Doctor Who (~40 mins per ep, 12 episodes in a season) on a single disc is very advantageous.

Like i said i saw the PS3 play next to the Samsung BDP1400 and the SHARP BD-HP20S and out of 7 people there 6 people confirmed that the SHARP and the SAMSUNG Blu-Ray players had better image quality.
Your REALLY long on claims here, claims no one else seems to be making and short on links to substantiate you views... Perhaps it would help you get you point across if we had access to the same sources?

Using google you will see Samsung BDP1400 vs PS3 reviews and opinions.
As for my personnal experience its hard to share it with you since the test was made in the center of Athens at a friends store when he first brought the Samsung BDP1400 and the SHARP BD-HP20S and wanted to see which Blu-Ray was better thus he called me and 6 friends and coworkers to check them out.
In any case im sure that eventually many reviews of the new sharp and samsung will emerge around the net and perhaps we will see more tets vs the PS3.

This article is only a few days old, they have tested the PS3 against a Panasonic DMP-BD30, which is one of the few profile 1.1 players around.

They have benchmarked them using HD HQV, and say that the PS3 performs best.

when it came to processing motion, we agreed that the PS3 edged out the Panasonic by a nose.

If I had to lay money down on one Blu-ray-only player at this minute, I'd have to choose the PS3.

Havent seen the Panasonic so i cant comment on that.
And performance/price ratio the PS3 is better since its also a gaming console. That was the whole idea from the start.

Good link Danrok! Picked up a few things I didn't know about what the updates are and might mean. ":O}

External connectors are an interesting issue - for example, if you're using gold plated connectors, then all connectors need to be gold plated. Using mismatched metals can cause signal degredation. However, in the digital world, gold plating doesn't necessarily provide any better connection than standard tin connectors.

The HD-DVD XA2, BD-P1400 and most of Sony and Pioneer's Blu-ray players use the Sigma Design SMP8634 to handle video decoding. The SMP8634 is quite happy to decode Blu-ray or HD-DVD.

The HD-DVD A1 uses Broadcom's BCM7411, as does the Samsung BD-P1000.
