    Agreed. Quoting some specifics on the c9 in relation to the percent of the screen below:

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    Regarding "PoP" .. I bumped the vibrancy up a few % on my LG 32gk850g (VA screen) some even at the price of accuracy since I mostly use it for gaming. You can also use nvidia freestyle if on a nvidia GPU. Freestyle via a hotkey pops up an overlay of slider controls on the left side of the...

    Is VR even worth it?

    It's sort of like having a 7.1 surround system and a big oled tv and a sectional couch compared to a modest smaller TV with built in speakers, or using a console gaming system rather than a loaded expensive pc with an expensive monitor. Personally I'd rather wait before going higher end, for...

    Is VR even worth it?

    From researching this so far it seems oculus desktop has their own virtual desktop screen/window pinning called Oculus Dash which might be a little less resource intensive, there is OVR Toolkit for steam which I will probably go with, and Virtual Desktop app also has this kind of functionality...

    Is VR even worth it?

    It can be momentary on a toggle , depending how you set it up that is. Like pulling up a minimized window. There are a bunch of options on how you do it I believe. You obviously want the apple experience out of everything as opposed to PCMR and sound like you are doing a linus tech take your...

    Is VR even worth it?

    That sounds cool. Hopefully there will be a new generation of VR headsets by the time I get to the point where I can remodel my garage into a VR and workout space with a space heater for winter and a pillar "R2D2" AC in summer. That will be a while yet. Higher rez headsets should be more...

    Is VR even worth it?

    The 8k x model's resolution looks incredible from the reviews but the overall kit price is ~ $2000. The cable bandwidth at highest Hz and the GPU power isn't fully capable without upscaling so that is something to be aware of in gaming. Hopefully higher resolution headsets will become more...

    Is VR even worth it?

    You can run games that natively have SBS 3D and VorpX also has a SBS 3D emulation mode called "Virtual 3D Cinema Mode" for games that don't have native SBS 3D support. Some have to use Bigscreen or probably Skybox. I prefer Skybox for 3D movies so I'd try that first. Some people with Nvidia...

    Is VR even worth it?

    $350 to $500 for a Quest, or $230 for a Odyssey+ on sale is console gaming prices so in my opinion well worth it for what you are getting currently. In fact I find the 8k x headsets very tempting for much better bigscreen movie and remote desktop text use, and isometric game text etc but I'm...

    Is VR even worth it?

    Might try this out later on today: https://uploadvr.com/oculus-link-resolution-increase-odt/ It would be nice if they would have settings for that in the actual quest interface so you could increase the resolution only when linked or on a per game basis or with a simple targeted toggle button...

    https://www.engadget.com/2020/01/28/samsung-discounts-its-steamvr-compatible-headset-to-230/ Samsung Odyssey+ price drop to $230 for anyone interested in that headset. They might be working on a new headset but that one would come at new headset pricing whenever it comes out:

    Is VR even worth it?

    I watched these two path of exile VR videos using youtubeVR on the quest: When zoomed out far overhead I found your character's central health bar way overhead in the middle of the screen very distracting so I'd definitely have to turn that off. All of the dropped item labels and health...

    Is VR even worth it?

    I read up on it.. It sounds very interesting. Some people like it some don't. It's not adding any information it's sort of like running a lower non native resolution or a soften blur filter. It's making the same pixel smeared/soften blurred across the SDE "grid" black line mesh so you don't...
