  2. AVS Forum's Top Blu-rays for 2016

    Official AVS Forum® Blu-ray Disc Reviews
    It's hard to believe that we are at the end of 2016. As in years past, when I began thinking about assembling this list, there wasn't an abundance of titles coming to the forefront of my mind.

    LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have an Xbox One S hooked up to the HDMI 1 on my M70-D3. And while it's great, there are black outs periodically. This only happens with the Xbox and only when hooked up to the M70-D3. I tried other sources on the TV, cable box, Apple TV (4th Gen), and using Cast, there was no issue with...

  9. 2016 TVs: Will FALD and/or OLED become mainstream?

    LCD Flat Panel Displays
