Default ps3 dead... need bluray player

if anyone has any under $100 recommendations for a reliable player that supports profile 2.0, decodes DTS-HD and TrueHD (AVR only supports LPCM/DD/DTS), and isn't slow as **** to boot and load movies let me know

there are a couple sony models that are a bit above $100 that i'm thinking about and i could sell my streaming box if i got one but i'm also looking into other possible options

streaming isn't important since as i mentioned i have a streaming box

I believe if you send Sony your old non-working ps3 they will send you a refurbed Slim for about $100.

You may want to contact sony and see what they could do for you.

I have a Sony Blu-ray player that plays every MKV I've thrown at it from my USB drives. I don't think the PS3 could ever play a MKV. With that being said I don't know about the newer players.

I also have a Panasonic and it doesn't play half the things my Sony can. But I have an older DMP-BDT300.

However the new DMP-BDT320 has an interesting feature:

External HDD Playback
Easily enjoy stored content
The 2012 Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Home Theaters are compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos (JPEG, MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD.

It also states it now supports MKV.
