Chuwi Larkbox

A$213 with free shipping. Not too bad.

When you eventually get it, let me know how it goes.

:olol: Like buying a video card for the past 3 years. Full of shit prices and the one you want is out of stock.
Doesn't help a lot of stuff ships from Melbourne and you Victorians keep fucking everything up :olol:

No problem. It's probably a month away.

ViewSonic ELITE XG270 27"

I bought a 240hz monitor for an arcade cabinet setup I'm planning with an old buddy.

I've been playing around with black-frame insertion to simulate a CRT screen and it looks really good with HSM Mega Bezel shaders in Retroarch.

That looks cool. Fancy!

Nvidia Shield TV Pro (2019 version)
Raspberry Pi 4 8gb
Argon One RPi4 case
Kingston 240gb M.2 SSD for Larkbox

Rpi4 8gb are back in stock at Core. Yay!

The SSD was added as a tier for the Larkbox when they got to $800k. So they will add that to it and install Win10 on it.

Got the Shield TV to stream the footy instead of casting it every night. It's overkill for streaming but it is good. Haven't tried any emulators on it yet.

I wanted one anyway but didn't want to pay $350 just to try out Dreamcast & Gamecube games. Footy every night gave me another reason for it.

Fair call. I needed a new headset/mic setup so I dropped $200 on that one above. :olol:

A Shield TV Pro is on my list to buy soon. I recently tried a "legal" Internet TV plan from a "very reputable source" for baseball, and my Roku is poorly equipped to handle something so ... uh ... legal.

My buddy bought a similar mic, it sounds really good. But he also doesn't like wearing a headset, so the feedback loops sound especially rich too :olol:
