  1. 1. Do you own or plan to acquire a UHD Blu-ray capable home cinema system?

    • Yes, I do
    • No, 1080p Blu-ray is good enough.
    • No, I'll miss my 3D Blu-ray too much.
    • No, I've only got 720p capability and it looks mighty fine.
    • No, DVD rulez!
    • No, I'm still rocking a Laserdisc player!
    • No, VHS will return (just look at vinyl)!
    • What's UHD Blu-ray?

55" or 65"? 

We may go big... 75 I think. Alex it is the best picture I have ever seen. I was seriously impressed. So was Dave and he usually doesn't care.

 

Until then I will enjoy my college football in HD tomorrow.

With OLED, that translates into a 77" screen, and those are crazy expensive. The latest LG 77" TV costs around 7200 Euro around here. That's almost 3 times as expensive as the latest 65" from LG OLED. Are you sure?

If he can afford it, why not?

 

The only real issue with a screen that size is determining whether it's simply too big for the room. For most living rooms, a 55" will suffice, and anything bigger will look awkwardly huge and will disproportionately dominate the room.

 

But if you have a dedicated home theatre room, a 65" or larger should fit right in.

Black Friday y'all ;)

 

 

So has anyone sampled Dolby Vision vs vanilla HDR10? Is DV worth the hand-wringing?

Really? Over here, the new model is 7200 Euro. The previous model (always a wise thing to do) is 6422 Euro. Not much difference...
