Post a Picture of Your Silly Purchase of the Month.

Adhesive or screw mounted?

Do you play everything digitally, or is it easier to insert discs/cartridges than that photo suggests?

Screw mounted. The Switch could probably be adhesive mounted but I'm over cautious.

Disks mostly for PS4/some catridges for switch, except for Indies. It's really not difficult to reach, the disc slot of the PS4 is facing that side and the TV itself is on a mount that pivots pretty easily. The switch pops out of the dock easily enough as well, so inserting catrtidges is a little more work but not much.

That looks awesome Gremlin. Did you buy specific brackets for this or build your own? Surely you didn't just drill through the bottom of the PS4.

Great job on the console mounting.

Specific mounts purchased off Amazon (links below). The PS4 mount is just a metal shelf with a lip and screw to hold it in place. The Switch is a piece of molded plastic (really sturdy, actually) that you screw in then drop the whole dock into.

Here's an actual shot of the setup:

I eventually cut the wire track down so it's not sticking out underneath the TV stand and attached it with command strips to the wall. Too bad this is a rental and I'll have to do this all again in a year.

Playing Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, even with the official component cables and progressive scan enabled, was irritatingly blurry on a modern TV. Excited to see how much this improves the image quality!

Finally got to try this tonight. 20 minutes later, the credits were rolling on Rogue Leader. I'd been banging my head against that final mission for at least 5 hours spread over several weeks. I hadn't touched it since early January, so it took me 10+ minutes to relearn the controls. Once I got into the Death Star, I beat the rest of the mission on the first try. Fist pumping and cheering ensued.
My toddler woke up and the adapter cost about $150. This moment was worth the price in both cases.

The effect of the GC HD II on Rogue Leader was subtle, but noticeable. Apparently it was also enough to help me finally finish the game. Looking forward to trying out Resident Evil 1 with it next.
