    Waiting till everything gets thoroughly tested seems like a minimum move then

    This basically limits you to laptops or tablets. Standalone touch screen monitors and a decent computer are incredibly expensive compared to a similar laptop or tablet PC. Does it need to run Windows or would Chrome OS work?

    oh, I have one of those as well, love it but my hand is to big for it and the last time I shot it at the range it tore the skin off my thumb knuckle... lol, didn't feel it but it bled a lot. As an afterthought though I think a 40 or 9mm would have been a better choice that size of handgun.
    Wonderful little boot gun.

    Well then, the Wilson Combat Texas BBQ Special. Only because I like the name, not the price ($5-6k, shudder). ?

    The 400 is actually better suited for MSRH, my local track. It's also a lot more fun and a better tool to work on my actual riding skills/lap times. 
     
    Also, the 400 is a lot more fun(easier) to work on and a lot cheaper to get track ready. Example: a full exhaust for the Honda cost 2.2k while a full exhaust for the 400 was maybe $650.

    Springfield makes and licenses great guns, with exceptions, so they get my vote here.

    Probably one of the least organized setups, but this how things are at this point in time. #nofilter

    Thanks! 
     
    Those opinions are not unwarranted. When I initially turned on the XB271HU I was completely underwhelmed, kind of pissed off I spent almost $800 on it. You have to calibrate it. I just kind of tinkered with it for a while and after a few weeks I found a good point where I am 100% satisfied. The first time I turned it on, I liked the colorization of my iPhone 6 a lot better. 
     
    The settings I have now are:
    Brightness 92
    Contrast 47
    Blue light Off
    Dark boost Off 
    Adaptive contrast 21
     
    Gamma 2.2
    Colour Temp Warm
    sRGB Mode Off
    Saturate 100
     
    I really hate the game mode, I leave it off at all times. Overclocking to 165Hz was like turning up the volume, very easy. The built in speakers are pretty bad, as expected, but usable as basic sound.
     
    After tinkering with it for a few weeks I am completely in love with the monitor. I only wish there was a good standard calibration setting out of the box or easy to find on the internet.

    Ah, I see. Those are nice looking but not for the price. I stuck with function over looks when I chose mine.. lol.
    I do know that Les Baer is a fantastic though expsensive option. They dont have the inherent feed issue found in the original design. And they are guaranteed. Not to mention made in Iowa. The owner hand makes each one and test shoots them for accuracy and function.

    All I can say is a had 2 razer nagas for over 2 years each and they were both fantastic. I used at least half of the keypad almost every day.
     
    Wireless MMO mice, I am not knowing. I mostly use a G602 now, but the 6 buttons on the side are basically useless to me. It has worked on every surface I tired in my home though.

    I own a Kimber Custom II, have had for 15 years now. Never had an issue with it. Never missed a shot with it.
    The Kimber line of 1911's are some of the best in my opinion. I would have voted for it but you dont have kimber as an option.
     
    I must ask, do you know from experience or hearsay? I've not yet run into this with mine.

    I have no idea what a home loan is. I purchased my house in 2011 during the housing market crash. I put a cash offer of 125K USD on a 4 bed/3 bath with pool and 4 car attached garage. Now I would not be able to afford this house now that the market is back up down here in South Florida.
