    Man I think any public place or business you walk in to, has those old dell 17” lcd monitors 1280x1024 lol.

    There’s no telling how many Dell monitors are in the world! Probably enough to fill a few states.

    After shutting off my x5 and leaving it that way for a few weeks I noticed that the battery was drained to 1%, even though fast boot has beem disabled. Does anyone know what the culprit may be?

    As for those who like chewing on graphics, you should definitely try Hunt Showdown (Cryengine 5.5). It's not optimised to the fullest, but it will probably cripple the 10xx series.

    My x5v7 does the same thing if I don't constantly use it for a period of time.

    Decided to give VR a go and to that end have a Samsung Odyssey on the way. I'll report back on how well our lappies can do with it, reading about various configurations and their performance I'm hopeful the X7 will acquit itself well.

    My X7 V7 has yet to let me down, it handles whatever’s thrown it’s way. I’m itching to try VR my self. I’m really interested in Fallout VR.

    Is that Samsung like mixed reality? So you can use it with the desktop apps to right?

    I didn't care for the Samsung. Way to glitchy on the controls. I had it the first month it came out though, so it might be better now. Vive and Oculus touch are both awesome though

    I've played with it a little bit. The controllers work fine but I've had very little experience with other systems so cant place them in respect to the competition. The VR itself can range from jaw dropping to meh depending on the material. Lots of new stuff to figure out and configure so I don't want to say something that wont even stand up to tomorrow's education. Thoughts in no particular order...

    Read the reviews and you come to understand that you're buying 1st gen hardware before you drop the ching no matter which way you go and with this hardware those things become apparent fast. Steam VR is beta, windows MR on Steam is beta. Windows MR in windows itself is beta. It's well enough sorted for the types that browse this forum but normal people would have some problems. As an example I had to edit some ini files to get the thumbsticks working in steam.

    It seems strange to me that the worst thing I viewed was walking through the welcome portal and home base. Steams home looks vastly better. That's a fail when third part software is giving the OEM lessons. Also, why would you not have the thumb sticks set up to move around? Why cant I go into options and make them be the default way to move around? Who was responsible for making the first thing new users saw the worst experience they were going to have? Shouldn't that guy/girl be escorted to the curb by a couple thugs that bang their heads into every hard object along the way?

    Tomb Raider was the first game I loaded and it was spectacular. When you first look at Laura and walk around her as she is standing there in 3D it becomes immediately obvious, this is the future of gaming.

    I didn't get any kind of disorientation in the portals but when in game moving around it tweaked my brain, had to step out every so often and get my head back on straight. Didn't experience nausea as some have commented on.

    With at least this system be prepared to screw around figuring things out, your first day will be more of a setup and problem solving exercise.

    The X7 laughed at VR, kicked sand in it's face, walked away with the girl.

    Gut call... I dig it but it's a bumpy ride.

    I just plugged in my cans for the first time. Turns out that Jack doesn't want to allow the plug all the way in. Looking inside it appears there is a bit of shrapnel in there I'm going to have to get out somehow. o_O

    My mic jack, and headphone jacks were both very tight, upon first use. They work well now, and I can plug stuff in with one hand and not holding one side of the computer.

    Shrapnel? Are you sure?

    Yeah, I was able to move it around with a safety pin, appears to be a small piece of plastic. I'm on the road so I don't have tools, looks like a dental pick might work but I can't prove it just yet.
