Just ordered from Australian HP site. In stock and $999aud ($678usd) inc GST and free delivery. Nice change to see we are not being price gouged which is the norm over here. So without our gst tax we are paying approx $618 usd equivalent. Very fair.

Mine is ready to be picked up at the dealer, but I'll wait a few more days.
Really, no one outside of HP knows. Maybe the "clip" was thrown in with the V1.0 headsets as a quick fix, OR there were other minor changes as well. Mine reads V1000.2 in the hardware monitor. I haven't had issues with mine yet.

It's not Amazon, it's a seller that uses Amazon. I'm pretty sure the sellers don't have the same return policy as Amazon itself. Keep that in mind.

Personally, after reading the WMR and Reverb Redits, the ONLY 2 sellers I would buy a Reverb from would be Amazon or Best Buy. LOL

I got an email alert (this morning) from Amazon stating to pre-order the Reverb which will be available on 19 Aug for $599.99, free shipping, and free technical support (?). I go back now using my email link, it states that it is currently unavailable.

I do see where it is also available from a third party from Amazon as well. I'm going to wait for the next batch from Amazon (non-third party).

I ordered from HP. Here is Amazon link. It is listed at $684.55 free shipping, which is within pennies of HP price plus shipping.

That's what I saw as well going directly to the Amazon site. My email link for the alert notification from Amazon showed the lower price of $599.99.

There was stock earlier from Amazon for $599, but I'm sure they already ran out since I no longer see them. I had decided to get a laptop instead anyway, but the Reverb will be my choice again since I enjoyed having it before. Unless the Valve is ridiculously better.

How is HPs return policy? Is it like Amazon/Best Buy's full refund no questions asked type thing?

*EDIT* Looks like HP changed the product pictures on their site. The new picture shows different cable management if my memory serves me correctly.

The trouble has been that many develop issues only after several to many hours of use and they heat and cool for many cycles. My first Reverb was perfect until over 20 hours.

These things are all manufactured in China but the debugging and fixing is occurring at HP in Houston, TX. I bet there have been some long winded conference calls between the two.

The HP tech rep I emailed last week is on vacation. Hopefully, not permanently. lol

I have an original and it works fine so I think it is a matter of weeding out the rogue units and putting in better QA processes and production fixes for future ones.
