I'm one of the few that has to worry about Dolby Vision pass through.

Which do you have? I really liked the T 777 but last I remember they are still $1000 on the used market. I read they are coming out with a new V3 version of it.

Is the 27” Acer monitor for $120 a great buy? Seems to have good reviews and it’s on sale now but I don’t know a ton about monitors. I know there’s a 27” Dell monitor for $100 in the Staples ad but I never really shop there and not sure how the two compare. Might as well check it off my list if it’s a good buy.

Per the information I could find, the 27" Dell monitor at Staples is a better deal. Yes the Acer monitor features more connection options but the more importantly the Dell monitor features an IPS panel which means it will provide better color reproduction (Yes I know this statement might be an oversimplification but its not far off the mark). For the price, if you can get the Dell monitor go for it!

I have gravitated to televisions instead of monitors eve since the LED revolution eventually led to lower prices on larger screens. You can do so much more with an insanely large TV as your computer screen/entertainment hub. I use a 50" LG 4k. My wife uses the 49" Toshiba 4k.

A T757 v2 powering a pair of Paradigm Studio 60's.  Few years old now, bought new.  Rather enjoy them.  ;)

thinking of possible receiver upgrade but don't know if either the 199 or 249? will work with current setup. Also just realized I've been breezing past any bluray players which may be there but I do need one. Suppose I'll be reviewing charts if they're still up this year. Any suggestions/comparisons on the cheaper  receivers?

For the extra $50 the Onkyo receiver is quite better than the Sony receiver. The Onkyo receiver has twice as many HDMI inputs as well as more connections beyond that. The Onkyo receiver also supports the lastest formats of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. It also supports most of the latest HDR standards like HDR 10 and Dolby Vision (support for this coming soon as a firmware update).

 

As for a blu-ray player, what to recommend would depend on the TV you are hooking it up to. I mean is it a 4K TV or just a regular 1080p TV. Also, are you an Xbox gamer because perhaps you get an Xbox One S/X as a blu-ray player.

Most of the newer receivers will give you 4K and HDR pass-through so it will depend upon your budget. If you have a 4K TV go with the $99 4K player otherwise there are some really good choices on regular Blu-ray players this year. If you really want the best of both worlds get an Xbox One S.

Thoughts on the Lenovo laptop for $279 8GB memory and 1 TB hard drive.

 

Teens for surfing the web, school work, games like Mindcraft and Star Wars

 

Not too familiar with the brand but the reviews seem pretty good
