I had read on the social media that CoC was supposed to have a 5.1 remix of the Manga dub, but that has apparently been dropped from the BD, yet it is apparently there on the DVD while the BD gets...

You can run whatever you want, including the latest El Capitan build, but a clean install is always best. I plan on upgrading my friend's 2010 Mac Mini to El Capitan in the Fall, when that version is...

Sony hasn't really been in the TV game since the HDTV boom. Back then, they were a force to be reckoned with because they had their own tech to put forth against their competitors. Now, they are just...

I'm gonna pass on this. Rather buy the new Commando Director's Cut disc instead. Why hasn't anyone been talking about that here?!

Current information says that Intel will not make the U-series GPUs compatible with HDMI 2.0 until Intel Cannonlake and that hasn't been confirmed to have HDMI 2.0 yet. So, no 4K NUC/BRIX units...

One of the new Zotac Z-Box models or Acer's Revo One, both with Broadwell CPUs are the best choices out there right now and give you more bang for your buck than any of the BRIX units.

Yes, that changes everything. The Shield might get the job done for you if it will work with your TV's one and only full HDMI 2.0 port, but I can't say for sure without trying it on your TV. The Sony...

I'd love to buy a Shield with more storage. Perhaps Nvidia is holding their breath waiting for more high-capacity embedded flash memory options or supplies from Samsung and other vendors.

Sony and WB both have a huge pile of catalog titles to release on UHDBD, whenever it hits the market. Sony will probably have the strongest set of launch titles with a wide range of genre films.
