4k or not to 4k
« on: November 18, 2016, 07:23:03 PM »
I have bought a 4k TV.

It is an inch bigger than my last non 4k (and therfore useless non 4k) tv.

I have upgrded my Xbox One to an Xbox one plus thingy that has 4k output I think, though i could be wrong.

Right...

Ready....

Go on then....

 tunble:

Battlefield 1 is pretty good though.

The local independent games shop has had so many people trading in their old PS4's for the new all singing all dancing ones that he is selling them pre-owned for around 120 (a lot of them still within their warranty) just to clear some storage space....

4K is like 3D, doesn't seem to work on me.....

Must.........resist.....temptation
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Bloody difficult in places but damn good. Just found out that my pc, despite being so old that Dell don't make the model anymore, is happily running it.  cloud9:

A cautious  :thumbsup:  What you going to use as 4k signal?

Please don't do what my brother did.  Bought an HD TV and for years fed it with a SCART lead  ::).  Then bought a 4K TV but still drives it through an HD only box  ::).
