The purpose of these cases are twofold: First, if you have an old iPad with a compatible screen, you can now breath new life into something that was essentially junk. Next, even if you end up buying all the parts new, you’ll end up with a small and light gaming display with only about one millisecond of lag.
While that in itself is still a niche use case, the MiSTer project has direct support for its native 2048×1536 resolution, suddenly making this a much cooler device! It works really well for both vertically and horizontally-oriented games and is great as a mini gaming station. Of course, if you were looking for a giant new monitor, this isn’t it…but if you were looking for something small as a dedicated monitor, now you’ll have a VESA mount option as well!
