I need a second monitor.  My primary is a 43" UHD tv, which is working great.  I own a 1080p monitor but it's on indefinite loan to a friend so she can work from home without using the laptop screen, which I wouldn't wish on anyone.  I could get a second 43" monitor, but I figured I'd ask for recommendations.

I've got a mish-mash of displays - but mostly Samsung for my PCs.

Sweet. I'm very pleased wishing myself for getting my gaming laptop back up and running. It was having power problems and I kept buying cheap power cables and batteries. So I threw a Benjamin at it this time and I guess that was most of the problem. But then I also messed with the power settings and THEN I REALIZED MY SSD WAS PARTITIONED AND I HAD BEEN RUNNING ALL MY PROGRAMS ON AN HDD UNNECESSARILY FOR FIVE YEARS. So I reinstalled all my programs, removing them from the hard drive and placing them on the solid drive. And now Starcraft II is insanely fast to load. A second or two instead of 30-75 seconds. It's glorious. I can't wait to see the difference it makes for Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

LOL. I hate it when I have expensive components that would benefit my life and I discover I've been under or non-utilizing them. Sometimes it is as simple as spending a few minutes reading the features list and then the manual, instead of just jumping right in and trying to figure out what it can do - but I do hate to RTFM.

Nothing much, just my life.  Buying a toy like a MiSTer would be nice, or more RAM, or another monitor.  Or chinese food lol

Not yet.  Want one.  I would absolutely love to play Dr Mario and original nes Legend of Zelda.  Getting a controller much like the NES Advantage would be completely sick and awesome, thought I do have a couple of USB controllers already that are decent.

I can fix this for you. We just have to arrange a time for you to come by. I've got two RetroPis, and I never use either of them, and never need both of them. 

You can borrow one indefinitely.  Because Wall Of Hate is full of more love than Oprah! It is even in a 3D printed Amiga 500 mini style case and has a momentary off button wired to it so you can power it down safely.

That has been the problem. Probably a Saturday - but I have to check with my wife. Everything has been booked so constantly lately. Let me find out and get back to you.
