So I have had my reverb for a few days now having upgraded from the Rift. Just to say it is streets ahead of the Rift in clarity and sweet spot. All these issues reviewers are reporting with Mura etc I just can't see it. It is good enough to do normal desktop work on as the resolution is so high and I can't see any screen doors. Blacks are also fine. One important point though, if you don't have perfect vision you must correct your vision for distance. The optics are set to infinity but this will work only on the very centre of your natural eye lens and you will lose peripheral clarity (ie much smaller sweet spot). Forget glasses use contact lenses.

Interesting you should say that. Did you read that somewhere or just say from experience?
I am fairly short sighted, and with the Rift and the Vive Pro, I had to use my glasses, but one of the first things I noticed when I got the Reverb, was that the image was blurred with my glasses on, and sharp without!
So, your theory appears to be correct!

Hopefully soon there will be prescription lens snap on adapters for the reverb. I got ones from here for my Odyssey and they are great.

Yes, I've contacted them. Let's hope they are aware of how the Reverb is different to the Vive/Rift in terms of focal length and focus distance.

Yea you have a point there. Sometimes I forget I still have contacts on and I put the Odyssey on my head with the lens adapters on and I can't tell a difference. But if I put my glasses on while I still have the contacts in, of course things are blurry. Funny because the prescription I gave to widmovr is for my glasses I think.

Interesting. So, what are you supposed to have on? Just the lens adaptors? Why use them at all if you have contacts? Are they not enough? Bit confused!

Default not the vr headsets

there is not an issue with all the new VR devices the problem lies with DCS nothing ever finished a pile of rubbish is just that rubbish no point trying to convince yourself it the headsets . why purchase something thats never going to be complete KA50 how much revenue has that brought to the table and still a half done deal no one to blame but yourself for being lead along that path. spend tens of thousands on you rig wont make and difference , how many plains this year and how many to go who know but I bet 0 will ever be completed .
