It's time! Prices are amazing on 1080p TVs and are dropping on 4K. Your 768p TV gave you a decade's worth of pleasure but I think you deserve something better now!

I picked up Gravity 3D and yes, I agree it's stunning. However, as good as the cinematography was, the fact the the 3D was not natively shot did soften the experience for me. As a conversion, it was...

I'm not sure how easy it'll be to find the cause. Hopefully, after hearing it three or four times, it'll just go away! Otherwise, I've had no complaints at all (knock wood!).
