Did you see this review? Reminds me more of Pimax with the distorted peripherals but it says that these are not Fresnel lenses. Until DisplayPort 1.4 they are having to hold the Refresh Rates down or hit the maximum on data rates. I could not tell any difference between 90 Hz and 120 Hz on the Valve Index but I do notice going from 90 Hz to 60 Hz on the Lenovo or Reverb and I don't care for it. 70 Hz seems somewhat slow for VR. Maybe they can speed that up.

I just posted in the Reverb section. The SteamVR resolution setting has totally changed for my new Reverb.

It looks just fine like that. I think DCS is setting the resolution ceiling, and the Reverb is capable of more than what DCS can produce in VR. I see no difference at all in clarity between 100% SS and 188% SS, it is excellent in both cases. It would be cool if there was some kind of HUD for VR that could display the actual resolution being rendered in-game. I think we would see that it never hits the native resolution of the Reverb. I have MSAA set at 2X, which pretty much eliminates all the jaggies, which were minimal to begin with.

As for the 1903 VR fix, I still have my Windows 10 at 1803. I figure, if it ain't broke, I'm not gonna try to "fix it". Never had any blurriness issues like others have had with the higher version. Just need to get the lenses a little further from my eyes and it'll be fantastic.

Just for giggles, I tried DCS in the CV1 again last weekend, and WOW does it look horrible compared to the Reverb. For some reason, the clarity increase from going to the Reverb from the CV1 wasn't as much of a shock as trying the other direction. It reminded me of trying to read the time on my alarm clock right when I wake up in the morning and my eyes are still trying to focus. A time when I'm struggling to discern the difference between a 0 and an 8.
