Best way to play Bluray?

Got some Bluray discs over the Christmas holidays, and I'm wondering how best to watch them.

I'd always heard that the Sony PS3 was the best value since for not much more than the cost of an exclusive player, you also got a game console. But now the price of players has dropped. I also don't mind ripping to mkv on my desktop PC and watching on a tablet or laptop hooked up to my TV.

So what is the best way to go? PS3? Standalone player? PC Bluray drive?
