I know this is the HTPC forum, but would this PC be a reliable "full-time desktop?" By that, I mean the main computer I'd be using for all my computing needs (not just occasional home theater use)....

Wow, wasn't expecting FLETCH. Definitely will be picking it up. It probably will sell very few copies but is one I'd certainly enjoy. I'd love VACATION on HD, with its really high replay value.

This and Labyrinth are two of my most wanted "80s" movies on BD. Hopefully the wait will be worth it with respectable PQ/AQ. As many times as this title's been re-issued on standard DVD I'm really...

I can hear up to about 11.5khZ in my late 20s using both Sennheiser HD600 and Grado SR225 headphones, which are pretty transparent. Have tinnitus in both ears and an obvious high frequency loss from...

Agreed. I'm passing on several concert discs that are DD+ only, which is riduclous if space permits a TrueHD track. Not off to a good start so far..

Wow, what a truly lackluster list. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/images/smilies/frown.gif WEIRD SCIENCE is a definite buy and perhaps Carlito's Way & Bourne Ultimatum. The others ..I'm not so sure.

Can't wait for the (higher bitrate) PCM track on this one. The old LD PCM is still one of my favorite mixes of all time.

I'd bite at $250 also (MAYBE $299). $499 is too much for my needs at the moment, as I have no interest in playing video games on it.

I really hope they stick it out with TrueHD with all future releases. I'm more than likely going to pick up more titles that I'm on the fence with if they have lossless audio.

Little Man, Norbit, and Basic Instinct 2 are definitely up there. As far as movies coming out soon, Perfect Stranger was really forgettable and bland.
