This is silly. There are already 4k rips of Netflix shows all over the internet. These drm restrictions won't make any difference with regards to piracy. :rolleyes:

It's too bad that 5TB drive for $99 at Frys is 7200 rpm and not 5400/5900 rpm. The slower drives are usually quieter/cooler.

Edit: Reviews are decent, and it's a NAS drive. Am I likely to notice a...

Custom timings for AMD @ 23.976 for proper BD playback

AMD added custom timing settings to Crimson drivers in the past few months. Does anyone have settings that work for proper playback of blu-ray content at 23.976? The default settings are not quite...

I would suggest you take a look at the 55EC9300. I have seen them on sale for as low as $1500. I don't think 4K is really needed at 55", and I wouldn't pay $4500 for one. If you want OLED get the...

It's not a gimmick. It noticeably improves black level/contrast ratio, and it's recommended by calibrators to leave on. With it turned off you're looking at mid range plasma blacks. That's not a...

There's nothing wrong with your set. The "pulsating" or "flickering" on an all black screen is due to black optimizer being turned on. It does some kind of pulse waveform to lower the black level....

As others have said, you would be better off getting a GTX 960 as it can hardware decode H.265. There's no difference in picture quality between a 980/970/960, or really any card for that matter.

You wouldn't get anywhere close to that, not even with the 60" model.

Same with mine. The longer it's on and the brighter the cell light/contrast, the brighter the pink. The only time where it's not that noticeable is the first few minutes after power on.

My set looks identical as the day I got it almost a year ago. It does have some DSE, as all of these models do. This won't be replaced under warranty.

For the price, it's not a deal breaker by...

I have an MSI Gaming GTX 960. It is completely passive until 60 degrees C. Even under full load the fans spin so slow I can't hear it.

IIRC the 50S64 was $599 and the 65S64 was like $1278 or something with some stores having them at around $1100 at closeout.

The filter on the S64/ST60 was not as good as the ZT60 or F8500, but it...

GTX 960 will be able to upscale 1080p24 and 1080p30 to 4K with NNEDI3, but not 1080p50 or 60. For that you'll need to use Jinc (which is still probably better than your tvs processing).
