one plays 3d one does not. If you dont care about 3d movies dont buy a 3d blue ray player

There are only a handful of 3d movies anyways

I would actually suggest buying a playstation 3 to play blue rays even if you dont play games. For one, you have a playstation 3 if any kids around. Two, you can use flash drives(usb) to play movies through it. Three, you can stream movies through it(netflix). Four, its roughly the same price as a good blue ray player and is just as good.

One additional benefit of the PS3 is online upgrades to support the BluRay standard as it's evolved. Gen 1 BluRay players (released at around the time of the PS3) without any upgrade capabilities can no longer play BluRay disks, that support the newer standards...

PS3 also supports 3D.

3D requires a 3D HDTV and 3D glasses. Another thing to look into is one with WIFI built in (not WIFI ready) to the player if you have a wireless network setup in your home. This would allow you to do internet streaming to your TV.
