    If your due an upgrade on your phone then go to CPW, get a PS3 as part of your contract

    Simple answer? Yes, they are.

    The price difference between the cheapest and more expensive models is basically faster boot up/disc load, more functions, better upscaling, quieter operation and better looking (though looks are subjective!).

    As your TV only has one HDMI socket, I'm guessing it's not that new and could be only "HD ready" (720p). So, the answer is to buy a nice new one! Or, you could get an HDMI splitter either manual, one with remote or fully automatic.

    The picture is only half the story, the other important concern is how you're plugging the blu-ray player into your home cinema system - probably either optical or co-axial, or even 6-channel audio. You don't have one? Get one! You need at least 5.1 surround sound to get the full experience. Something along these lines, though you can get much cheaper ones.
