    • Personally I like Toshiba DT01ACA300 because it's the cheapest I could buy in my location, and it was the exact same drive inherited from Hitachi.  I own several units of it (from Hitachi brand to Toshiba brand), one is used inside a Magic TV.  This is a 7200rpm drive - those who care about heat may opt for a 5400rpm drive instead.  (Note: stay away from Toshiba 4TB.)
    • Monster trucks can jump 15 cars at a time, but i still prefer an Alfa ;-) its all personal preference roll down screens do nothing for me, i prefer the TV furniture look
    • Hi there, if you would consider postage I would love to purchase them. I can organise the courier if you're happy to wrap them up and stick some labels on. Happy to pay you to purchase the required bubble wrap.
    • Obviously not enough to want an image as close to the cinema release as possible. HDR mastering fundamentally changes to look of the move, and thats not accuracy. If the cinema release was put on disk unaltered we would have video that is mastered and optimised for the light levels we use with a projector. HDR is mastered for a peak about output 20 times greater and is therefore FAR from ideal for viewing on a projector even if you do like the look of it. The projector has to apply an inverse gamma to undo most of the HDR effect, if that where not done the picture would be about 20 times dimmer and unwatchable. So, what you think is HDR on a projector really isn't at all, its effectively SDR with a tweaked gamma. The peak white level is the same as with normal video if the projector is setup for maximum output and the black level is the same as well, so no High Dynamic Range. Its ALL in the gamma and we can adjust that to get the "look" we want with any video.
    • I understand what you mean and I know there are many enthusiasts that would feel the same way. I'm sure that is the case for you Owen, but for many a 65" at the appropriate seating distance is more than adequate. JSmith
