Great set up there! The PCW8256 was all I had to play games on from 1988-1991. I now have 3 in my collection as I fix them and can't bear to sell them on :)

There was something special about that green display I'm sure. I have fond memories and hope you do too.

Not sure about your "low resolution" comment on the PCW. It had 720x256 resolution, one of the highest resolutions of the time.

I meant more my photo of the screen, but it came out wrong. You're right, it looked great in real life! I loved The Pawn graphics detail. Though of course by today's standards, it is "low resolution".
