Not looking forward to having to deal with it, since almost every tech support experience these days requires a UN interpreter. I guess I'll be back on the CV1 for a while, and hope for great things with the Acer ConceptD Ojo. HP is going to have to do something spectacular to regain my trust after the whole warranty thing.
Looks like the Acer is not going to have the same resolution as the HP see video

The OJO 500 and ConceptD OJO are 2 different headsets.

Yes, the names and similar designs are confusing...

I've been following the Acer Ojo Conceptd for a while, and it really hasn't had notified news since late April/early May. It was sold commercially, but there has been zero mention (to the best of my knowledge) that it would be sold as a consumer product. Acer has been silent about it for months. There is no guarantee the new Ojo HMD will even be released to us. I wanted it waaaaay more than the Reverb, but at the end of the day, is it better to wait and not enjoy the time you have, or jump on the Reverb and have the same clarity now (barring IPD adjustments)?

For me, it was Reverb. It has a 1 year warranty to cover mishaps. Pretty much the same risk as any electronic device. I'm willing to dive in and pay my dues so I can fly now and enjoy DCS at the best quality resolution a VR can provide.

Where do you do this, do you have to register it?

Speaking of the Reverb, I just checked and it is available on the HP website, due to ship 08/21/2019, if anyone is looking to buy direct from them.

Damnit! Amazon has stock again too. Laptop or Reverb?

Still up on HP site, I pulled the trigger, not sure if I’m excited or worried about the wife’s reaction. Now regretting not buying her a gift on her bday last month.

nobody knows (yet).
They come with a cable clip, the same which already was available weeks ago. It seems to fix the connection-issues, but I really can't call that a *solution*.

Regarding the other known issues we need to wait for what people report.
Mine is ready to be picked up at the dealer, but I'll wait a few more days.
