so, i just got a PS3 the other day, and by the look of it HFW is my choice. at the same time, i wanna upgrade the storage (going from 120 HDD to 1TB SSD). but with how the system is, i need a firmware update to install to the new storage medium. is it safe to install HFW to what i have now and go back to OFW when the SSD comes in? reinstalling HFW after that, or am i fine just installing HFW straight to the SSD?

should be fine installing hfw directly to the ssd, but ssd 's are a waste of money on the ps3. the ps3 is too old to make use of them.

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage

    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    aye long as you're happy with your purchase that's the important part

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    I gotta sit down for a bit and play around with the new surround receiver I bought

    Does everything I need it to however it's got some peculiarities that either I'm just being big dumb and not understanding right, or are a complete dealbreaker

    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment

    As long as it booms out the crackhead I live around it's good enough

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

    Denon makes good shit

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao

    I can cook great. But the depression kind of drains me of all motivation to do anything
