|"I am a recent visitor to Holo-Dek and i am absolutley satisfied. the hourly rate isnt that bad, even for non members, the environment is very friendly and i even joined a Holo-Dek World of Warcraft Guild! The screens are about 6' by 7' or so they are incredibly detailed and run perfectly.
Lag does not exist in this realm."
