    No gaming yet, I have an Xbox One but it never gets used... that said no issues with image retention. Apparently the LG's have exhibited some IR issues (or worse) but nothing has been noted on the A1E, panels are the same but likely down to Sony's image processing engine. According to my TV...

    I got the 65" Sony A1E a few months back and I absolutely love it... picture is stunning and watching Leafs + Raptors games in 4K is a treat. Android TV is working very well to, having Plex + Kodi built in makes streaming so much easier. Highly recommended, as much as I loved the Panasonic...

    Sweet, what TV are you looking at? The current prices on the LGs are pretty compelling especially for 55"... my guy has really solid pricing on the 55" Sony but it is still almost a thousand more then the LGs. After getting my Sony I've been debating an upgrade to my bedroom TV to a 55" OLED...

    Cool, yeah I've heard the newer model is really strong. What I'm not clear on is how this will work with my receiver (Anthem MRX-710)... not sure if I can pass 4K HDR through the receiver to the TV (seems unlikely) and/or pass audio via HDMI ARC from the Shield to TV and back to AVR. My gut...

    Not surprising, once you see OLED everything else is meh... sure the top end LCDs can go brighter but they miss the incredible black levels, motion, off axis viewing, etc etc etc. I'm happy with those results too, the Panasonic had better win at over 2x the price of my lowly Sony A1E. The LG's...

    Yeah I'm sure we are talking about the same guy, I may have referred you to him for a plasma a while back. :D To your comment that is it exactly, it is apparent that Sony took their time in getting OLED right with this unit vs churning out units to obtain first mover advantage. One thing in...

    Yep, actually I'm surprised at the amount of 4K HDR content on Netflix + Amazon Prime... wow factor is extremely high, everything is so vibrant + rich and the colours pop beyond words. Re-watched an episode of The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime (some challenge in the Caribbean) and it was like...

    For Sale: Panasonic 65ZT60 plasma in excellent condition. :D Got the 65" Sony A1E delivered and setup today, pulled the trigger yesterday afternoon and watching Netflix 4k content less than 24 hours later. As much as I loved the ZT60 the past 4 years this thing is at a whole other level...

    As a long time Panasonic fan I'd be all over their sets but for two things... availability in Canada and price. The EZ1000 looks like the one to have but I can get the 65" Sony A1E today for a price that will leaps and bounds below what even the lower end Panny EZ950 will retail for; it is...

    Uh oh. I saw the Sony A1E while in London (at Harrods) on a work trip in late June and it is MIND BLOWING. By far the best looking set I saw there amongst many top notch OLED TVs. I would love to wait for the Panny but pricing looks way out there and I can get a screaming deal on the Sony...

    Pimp Your Ride: The officious car thread for gear heads

    Nice one, congrats Jeff. When does it arrive? Those look really nice but I've yet to read a review, would be interested in hearing how it drives... and also how it stacks up against the new 4 cylinder Macan at around the same price point. :p We got my wife's 2017 Golf R (Lapiz Blue/DSG)...

    Toronto Restaurants that are an *EXPERIENCE*

    Although not fancy in terms of dress if you haven't been Edulis sounds like it would hit the mark. Not expensive but the food is fantastic... think the 5 course menu is $65 per person which is a steal.

    Pimp Your Ride: The officious car thread for gear heads

    Seriously in that price range (mid $60k) you could easily build a Macan S that is decently equipped... you'd have no issue getting one nicely equipped under $70k which is expensive but also money well spent on a Porsche vs Jag. I of course assumed you'd looking at the top level Jag F-Pace which...

    Cool, yeah definitely let us know what you think of the Jag. Also if you need a contact at Porsche I have a guy. :D

    Pimp Your Ride: The officious car thread for gear heads

    Nice one Jeff, if you must have an SUV (yuck) the F-Pace is certainly an interesting option. Looks fantastic in person, much better than in pics. Also relatively well priced compared to other options out there too although I'd be concerned about resale value if you're looking to purchase...

    Insurance really isn't bad at all... depends on your situation of course but I'm paying less now than I was on my C63. The deductible is just a bit more mind you (understatement).

    Pimp Your Ride: The officious car thread for gear heads

    In a word I'd say expensive. I've only had one oil change so far and that only set me back $350 or so, I guess that is reasonable on some planet. Otherwise car has been dead reliable in all seasons but that is a small sample size. While the modern cars (997 + 991) are fairly reliable...

    Most likely me, I was around that night... think I was going to get gas but not positive. Not a GT3 though. Haha no unfortunately not. Particularly now that GT3 prices are officially insane... not that it would work as a daily driver for me anyways. I'm more than happy with my relatively...

    Yep the Golf R and R32 before that have always been AWD. Makes a massive difference too as expected... the current GTI will very easily spin the front tires but the R is planted and just takes off under hard acceleration. GTI is a great car too but the R is just at another level with the extra...

    Looks like I have my wife convinced to get a Golf R when her lease is up, huzzah! She is currently on her third Mercedes B-class but finally got her thinking about a change after we drove a GTI last weekend. Test drove a 2016 Golf R tonight (the Dealership GM's car no less), man it is a rocket...
