All this is true. H.264 acceleration is available on just about everything. To do HEVC 10-bit, you either need insane compute power or a dedicated hardware decoder. I have been testing different...

Early reports (rumored and otherwise) are that all the upcoming OLED laptops/tablets and the Dell 4K OLED monitor are Samsung, so wonder no more! Hopefully we get to buy them soon... ;)

My guess is that UHD disc rentals will be extremely niche for a while, like 3D rentals. Places like this may be your only avenue:

I preordered The Martian from Amazon, but that's because it was the only one they had that I felt like watching. I can't find Mad Max anywhere.

In the grand scheme of things, 90lbs is not a lot when talking about 2x4 lumber. Those look like 2x10s or something, definitely overkill, but effective. About the only advice I can give it to make...

Do you prefer Vudu 1080p to Blu-ray 1080p? If yes, then stick with Vudu. If no, then buy UHD Blu-ray.
