Having regular glitches

works great until it doesnt. If you use Favor Resolution mode at somepoint the game play becomes really glitchy and unplayable, switching back to Favor Preformance mode helps but the quality isnt as great. Also i have noticed that the backround sides of the app itself becomes at times a big spam looking ad for Genki and it takes a while to remove but it eventually does. Not sure why this is the case since you pay for the device and such.

Awesome, but I wish there were a few additional options

Until recently, I had a display that the button broke on. My HDMI inputs were unusable, so this was an awesome solution. However, I recently picked up an Ultrafine 5K, which has no additional inputs - another great use case for the Genki! However, I really wish there was an option to resize the main window to 100%, 125%, 150%, 175%, and 200%. In-between sizes make the picture blurrier without the best experience, so I often keep it at the default window size. I also wish there was an in-between option for picture settings - a "balanced" picture setting that sits somewhere between "best quality" and "best performance." For fast games on the Switch, best quality introduces a lot of lag, while best performance looks the worst. I'd be okay with a bit more lag if it meant better quality, but I don't really want to go so far as "best quality" either.

Otherwise, it's a great app, especially when paired with the Nintendo Switch.

Works great for playing PS5

I have limited desk space so can't fit another dedicated monitor for my PS5. I use the Genki Shadowcast to hook up my PS5 to my Mac Studio's monitor, an LG 4K. Very easy to use the Genki Arcade app to play games. No noticeable lag at all on playing games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare and God of War. I highly recommend this product. I may not notice lag because my Mac Studio Max has a beefy 24 core graphics card while other users have complained about lag sometimes. I always play in higher resolution mode.
