nice price, I'd really only recommend to people who will mainly use for sims because of the poor controllers and tracking but nothing beats that resolution. Would love to try one out but I'm happy enough with my quest for now and looking forward to trying out link this month.
Sent mine straight back. You can see the screen edge, the cable is ridiculously heavy and the resolution bump is good but not that good. The Quest (with the PC Link cable) is pretty much the only sensible option right now in VR.

Thought it came out this year?
I have one and love it. No problems playing anything so far. Screen res is well worth it. I had a Vive, a samsung odyssey, and a rift s. Reverb is best by far. Only bits I liked better on others were the volume and IPD adjustments on the samsung. Rift S simply isn't in the same category (although the hand controllers are nice)

It is looking that way. As much as I want a Valve Index (and to be using a well supported SteamVR headset), it's going to take a hell of a price cut to persuade me. In the absence of a (what would seem to be, extremely unlikely) price cut to around £600 for Black Friday, I'll be taking a serious look at the Quest. It's a seriously flexible system, that isn't horrendously priced (although the cable isn't cheap).

All pre launch reviews say rift s quality is better than quest with the cable... just saying

I think it's perfectly possible to have a 'good idea' of how it's going to be. Obviously the Quest itself is out and we know what it's like. We know the link cable is coming and how much it costs (at least roughly, $79).

So we are already familiar with the headset (and the visuals are only going to be improved by connecting it to something with GPU grunt), the controllers and know the costs.

We know what games are available and we can comprehend the concept of plugging in a headset to a PC in order to run PC games on it, while still being able to use it standalone.

I think we can tell that it's going to be the best all-rounder VR headset for most people.

I still want that Valve Index, but there is no denying that the Quest is looking a very attractive prospect (more flexible for a lot less money).

It damn well should, otherwise there would be absolutely no point for it to exist. The question is 'is it enough better to make up for what it lacks compared to the quest?'

Have u actually used one?

I use a wmr headset and have used a oculus and the tracking is no different.

Too many people saying the tracking is poor when they have no real world experience of it.

I have not but all reviews say the hand tracking is by far the worst on wmr. Not such a problem for sim vr which this headset looks to be ideal for. I've gone with a quest as the freedom is amazing. If I was after a pc only headset I'd definitely consider this.

Sorry I have to disagree to an extent.The only advantage on the HP Reverb is its resolution and that has a really small sweet spot.
I only paid £457 for mine on an Amazon Warehouse deal and I'm probably still going to send it back.

I also own a Rift S and a Quest which both have their own advantages and disadvantages. For example playing Vadar Immortal II on the Rift S, Quest & HP Reverb the Quest version was by far the most enjoyable for me due to the Quests OLED black levels display. The Rift S and the HP Reverb both looked washed out, especially the Rift S. It's not all about the resolution and I find the HP Reverb to be a one trick pony.,

I'd take the reviews with a pinch of salt. Most seem to be written by oculus owners that are hurt they wasted all there money on extra cameras and cables that just aren't needed.

I can match my beat saber scores with rift or wmr no issues. Most problems stem from people not using the Bluetooth dongle for the controllers on a USB extension away from the pc itself.
Consumer VR is dead (again) IMO.

The extra cameras are better and the Quest/Rift S is cheaper than the HP reverb. Beat Saber works great on every headset now they have fix some of the tracking on the Cosmos.
I've owned or still own: Vive OG, Rift CV1, Samsung Ody, Rift S, Quest, Pimax 5K, Index, Cosmos.
I'm here wondering if I should add a Hp Reverb to my colloection.
I went from samsung ody to rift s and reverb.... had every intention of returning one of them, it was the rift s. Quality of the rift s was poor overall and the image was way better on the reverb too. I got mine from Amazon so can return in inside a year if it develops a fault, so no way of losing really
