Quality is only a part of it. There's also ownership.

Watched Free Guy 4K disc tonight. Enjoyed it, especially all the gaming references and jokes.

good A/V quality. Not blow my socks off good like ‘Nope’ or ‘Maverick’ but good enough.

Ownership is fine up to a point, but then you have to be practical. Unless you have ample room, then you have to condense the Discs somehow. Put them in sleeves and file them, or save them to a Server.

I watched S1 E5 of 1923:

If one is serious about ownership and HT, that has probably been planned for.

I fit 1000 discs in a single bookcase. It doesn't take up that much room.

Why would a non disc owner be concerned about space needed to store disc, makes no sense unless they are envious of those that have disc and space to store them.

Having them stored on your personal server does not reduce disc storage space unless the person sold the disc. In that case the person should delete the title from their server. Having my own server has not changed my procedure, I still store all my BD on shelves in the home theater and in alphabetical order.

Now that I have both subs working again and a new lamp in the projector watched Top Gun: Maverick last night. Was curious about PQ since it was shot with the Sony CineAlta series cameras. Looked really good. In the future it will be interesting to see how many will use Sony instead of Arri or Red cameras. Watching what Blackmagic Design is doing with cameras.

It really worked for me.

I have stopped using my server for now but even the server takes up space. I have my discs A to Z but outside of the theater in another part of the basement. 3D and Special packaging stored separately. I need to take over another wall in the basement for more shelves because I'm finding movies I want everywhere I look. Really happy with all my dollar store finds especially Adrift. It came with an iTunes HD copy. (No Vudu or MoviesAnywhere option.)

I pre ordered the 50th Anniversary Dark Side of the Moon Deluxe set with new ATMOS mix. I'm so glad Pink Floyd release so many Blu Rays. I have 8 of the 15 studio albums on Blu Ray now all with lossless high res surround sound. This will be the first with ATMOS though.

That is a great find at the Dollar Store with Adrift. Great video and audio and a twist I did not see coming. I would have to put All is Lost with Robert Redford slightly ahead of it as a movie though, and it also happens to have one of the best 5.1 mixes I have ever come across.

Will look into it myself. Just blind purchased some John Boorman directed titles. Been really enjoying some older westerns on BD.

Thoughts after you give it a spin.
