Good morning, Bits readers. We trust that all those of you here in the States had a fine long holiday weekend with your family and friends. We’ve been busy here at the site over that time in a couple of ways...

All four discs are well your time for various reasons, so do give them a look. More 4K reviews are coming soon.
