I'm not. It's just doing it's thing, but it still looks great to me. I wasn't initially going to get this movie but all of these positive comments have me changing my mind. I'll pick it up tonight...

Correct. It will downconvert to 1080P. That said, I've found that downconverted 4K on my 1080P projector looks better than Blu Ray movies. It's worth getting a 4K player IMHO. If you want...

The pro controller is fantastic. I have found, though, that I'm often playing in "tablet" mode as it is nice to be able to take it anywhere in the house. My five year old loves to watch me play and...

I bought a Switch and if the only game they ever came out with was Zelda, it would still be worth it IMHO. BOTW is the best game I've played in a very, very long time. Yes, my computer puts out...

The thing I really like about PC gaming is that you don't actually HAVE to upgrade if you don't want to. I've had my rig for quite a while and I can still play AAA games, albeit at a lower setting. ...

Let's put it this way, I have a Panamorph UH480 and this is such a good deal I would almost consider it. It's the best of the best. And I believe the answer is no to your first question.

I am definitely going to pick this one up. Emma Stone is just a neat actress and I like her husky voice. I don't normally like musicals all that much, but I'm a sucker for a good love story, so if...
