    Even if they're not calibrated (heresy!!), they'd probably give you a better idea of the look of the disc on your system. A lot of medium-to-high end laptops also have HDMI outputs, which may give even better results as these "SmartTV" sets aren't as smart as the manufacturers make out.

    I have just watched this and the picture is lovely, the only thing i noticed there was no directional dialog as i am sure was in the 4- track ,6-track and even the DTS Special Venue print i saw at Bradford in 2007, but still a great blu ray.

    The loss of directional dialogue is a shame and I wonder why. In any case,as you said, a great disc overall.

    I was all ready to purchase this disc until I read your post that it's a 2K scan. Now I'm wondering about purchasing this and other fox films that I already have on DVD. I was aware that some years back they transferred a large number of older films as 2K scans, which they referred to at that time as "High Definition". They used those 2K scan to also make the DVDs at that time. I have the feeling that they might be using those same 2K transfers for current Blu-rays. They look excellent on DVD, however, I have found that when they use these same transfers for Blu-ray, they don't appear much better than the original DVDs. If that's the case, I can live without them.

    It should be better, if nothing else the blu ray encode won't have artifacts and DVD's often have considerably more sharpening applied, go back to page 1 and read the comments from Mr Harris and remember your screen size will play a part in whether you think it's better or not.
