The PS3 can do everything on the list other than reading the SD cards, and it can do this with a $20 adapter. Why would someone pay $700 for fewer features than a $300 PS3?

36 bit deep color or not

Anchor bay VRS tech (whatever the Hell that is) or not

No one will ever notice the difference between one sony, panasonic, etc 200.00 blu ray player and a ridiculously overpriced Marantz, Denon 500-800 dollar player.

Yes, they are great products and their audio equipment is fantastic but Blu ray has reached a point of homeostasis and has just about balanced out quality vs price. A Marantz may last a little bit longer but that ain't worth no 500.00 bucks extra.

Those are just meant to be sold to the stupid people.
