    CRT monitors with a small dot pitch

    Unfortunately, the spec listings of many CRTs inflate their max resolution past what their aperture grille or shadow mask is actually capable of resolving. To my knowledge, the ViewSonic G220f is the highest resolution CRT, when dot pitch is considered. With a dot pitch of .21mm at 20" viewable...

    Good lord, prescription lens inserts are an incredible game changer!

    Recently purchased a pair of the WidmoVR prescription lens inserts and it's like a brand new system. I thought that since I was near-sighted that it wouldn't really affect me much, but the different is incredibly significant. Took a shot in the dark and these things are AMAZING. If you need...

    How much better do you consider gaming at native resolution?

    I currently have a 32" QHD monitor. I usually game at 1080p, because I'm still using a 1060 3GB. I normally don't spend more than the $200 range of GPUs, which are geared for 1080p gaming. I'm wondering, then, when buying a monitor, would you still buy QHD? Or would I still be able to save some...

    miniDP > DVI-D adapter: 2560x1600 @60HZ

    Is it theoretically possible to achieve 60HZ signal at a resolition of 2560x1600 from a miniDisplayPort > DVI-D adapter? I ask this because I have tried THREE adapters one 8$, one 15$ and one 32$ and all three promised to go into resolutions of up to 4K @30HZ, and the latter promised...

    Gear VR: Intriguing, exciting, disappointing, expensive, immature?

    Click-bait title, maybe, but it's how I'm feeling after about 2 hours screwing around with a Samsung Gear VR and a Galaxy S7 Edge. Mind you this is the original model which I found on clearance locally for $25; at that price I figured why not? The S7 Edge isn't on the officially supported list...
