    Good experience with refurb Latitude laptop

    Time to update this story. The release of Win 11 has made my older machines not upgradeable. To prepare for the inevitable learning experience, I bought about the cheapest Dell Optiplex with 8th gen i5 core processor: an Optiplex 3060 tower. It was good used condition off eBay for $360...

    Recovering original OEM Windows activation key

    My newest refurbished Dell laptop came with Win 10 Pro but it was activated in a funny manner. “Windows is activated using your organization’s activation service” Research on line discovered big companies that buy lots of PCs use this method, but the PCs have to check in to the server every...

    What Series are you most glad you have on DVD?

    I owned the DVD series which took up way too many discs. Then I bought the Blu-Ray set a few years for about $40. I see it now is long out of print and eBays for something stupid like $300! :oops:

    The 4K set of Apocalypse Now, all three versions, for $14.

    My only gripe is they put the 4K theatrical and Redux on the same disk, using seamless branching. My Sony X700 spits up on the branching - it freezes at odd times. And I only really want to watch the theatrical release version. I'd rather have a dedicated 4K disc of the theatrical release...

    The 4K set of Apocalypse Now, all three versions, for $14.

    This may be another of those limited time deals from Amazon. The 6 disc set includes the Final Cut along with the original theatrical release and the Redux versions on a separate disc. I thought I got a bargain buying it for $18 last year.

    Jurassic World 5 Movie-Collection 4K $27.99

    It's boxed as two separate 5 disc packages: one 4k and the other regular blu-ray. I was just going to buy the first film in 4k, but for $9 more I got all the rest, plus an extra set on regular blu-ray to give away.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    To be honest the disc packaging for the very first LOA DVD is still my favorite. The case was covered with a light tan cloth that mimicked Lawrence's outer garb of his white robes.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    I ordered my SB from Amazon - along with a pack of socks. I figured they would have to put them in a box together. Somehow they put the SB at the bottom of the box with no padding, and managed to install a small dent.

    Jurassic World 5 Movie-Collection 4K $27.99

    The Amazon listing says 5 discs, but they are often in error about such things.

    Jurassic World 5 Movie-Collection 4K $27.99

    How does this work? A 5 disc set with 5 films: how do they get both the 4k and regular blue ray smashed into 5 discs? I just looked - price expires in about 5 hours!

    Selling old HTR…..

    Old receivers make great garage audio systems. I have an old 2 channel Yamaha receiver with what was once state of the art Toshiba DVD player as a CD drive.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    They would have done better to have copied the cover art from my 1st edition copy of Seven Pillars Of Wisdom.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    I missed this the first time I read the review. I received my copy today from Amazon, and was pleased to find the 4K feature was split onto two discs. I've been unhappy with the 4K Apocalypse Now discs since they crammed the theatrical and redux versions onto a single disc, which my X700 has...

    Good Bye To The Warner Bros (Columbia) Ranch Burbank Ca

    At least when they burned down an earlier picture's sets, they filmed the fire for the burning of Atlanta scenes in Gone With The Wind.

    UBP X800 (1st Gen) Not Playing some 4K Discs

    Check with Sony. I just got a firmware update yesterday for my X700. It installed correctly. Maybe it will fix my Apocalypse Now problems.
