    Bought the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai Film & Slide Scanner a few weeks ago. I plan to hook it up this weekend and scan some new film I shot last weekend. This should be about as sharp as I'm going to get with consumer level stuff. Also, you get total control over everything. It's pretty sexy.

    So this is like Daemon Tools, but done in a HDD enclosure? I've never seen anything like that.

    Do you know if it can mount/boot OS X install DMGs on real Macs, as well as regular PC ISOs? I've discovered how to add OS X install images to the drive, but each one requires it's own HFS+ partition and getting Clover bootloader to boot on real Macs can be tricky.

    EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out :D

    hell yeah more people joining the 4k Club.

    I hate those curved displays. I don't get it.
    but we bought a flat 4k in December and the difference between that and traditional HD is incredible. especially if you were to see them side-by-side.

    I agree, seems that Samsung's got the craziest ideas known to man with their lineup. The salesguy at Best Buy clearly recommended the Sony XBR over anything Samsung, and rightfully so.

    EDIT: Even with the W950B Series, for a 1080p set, it's still far better than most on the market in terms of "bang for the buck" TVs out there... Glad that Sony turned over a new leaf when it came to their pricing-to-features ratios. Now it's SAMSUNG that's pricing everything incredibly high for what you get.

    Where are you getting 4k content?

    Anyway, I thinking of holding out for 8k since 8k broadcast is just around the corner here in Japan. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic games will be broadcast in 8k.

    mostly Netflix and Amazon Prime so far.

    ComCast/XFinity will be rolling out dedicated programming lineups this Spring/Summer.

    My knowledge about Daemon Tools is rather limited, but AFAIK, yes. You copy ISOs on the HDD, select the one you want, and it emulates a USB CD drive that the PC can boot from. My sample size is a bit limited, but so far I only had problems with PCs that can't boot from a USB CD drive. Tried a couple of Linux ISOs, and IIRC a Windows PE disk. Can't remember if I tried it with a normal Windows install disk. I didn't try OS X.

    Hmm... Actually, weren't the XB1 and PS4 4K consoles as they were, too? I'm not sure if most game developers were on board of taking full advantage of the 2160p resolution, but no doubt those days are coming.

    What do you mean by weren't? I'm pretty sure they have always been 792p minus the Bluray playback. Can they run any games in 1080p?

    Well... As I said on the AVS Forums just a few moments ago.
    Sometimes the highest-end 1080p HDTVs will sometimes look AS good, if not outperform the average, mid-range 4K UHDTVs. Just like there are some DVDs that will have the same features, and will look as good, if not a little touch above the average Blu-ray movie that's out there. Just because something might be Blu-ray, or something might be 4K doesn't mean that it's going to look the best on those. However, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't at least TRY to futureproof your home theater. :)
