Just be aware that you will likely face https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinavia if you try to watch .mkv movie files.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

Think i'll wait 1.5 months for the xbox one S for $648 instead of wasting $1199 to Panasonics ego.

The XBOX S may be a good option for many, but for those with dedicated home theatres, or with audio equipment they don't feel like rushing out to replace, the lack of a second HDMI output will pose a bit of a problem.

Ha, knew the first player wouldn't be under a grand.  Typical NZ dealers.  Giving us the middle finger.
