The Reverb is definitely worth a try when it arrives on Amazon. With 30 day hassle free returns as an option, it`s a no brainer. I would like now for Acer to get the finger out and provide us with another high spec option to choose from. I think simmers can more or less bin the rest of the field of gen 1.5 HMD`s as of the Reverb`s release.

Sorry Naruto- posted same minute.
Well that's encouraging. I'm shocked at 200% SS and those frame rates thought. I wonder if he has trees and shadows on... And yeah this basically confirms if you have a high enough spec rig you in theory can run DCS today with a reverb.

Good to know, perhaps we can prod him to post the actual settings for DCS. If its the VR standard ones I'm good with that.

I'm waiting for swiviver review, he's the only one that seems to know what he's doing.

That same link was already posted in this thread yesterday, and if you read it carefully, you can see that the reviewer engages in a lot of "in this situation it would probably---" speculation on things he hasn't even tested. At various points throughout that article, he also appears to be confused about which of the two headsets he is writing about. For example, he mentions the "Reverb's flip-up functionality feels flimsy and bumps into your head". The Reverb does not have the halo-mounted flip-up feature, but the Rift S does.

He also claims that the headphones on the Reverb feel cheap and cannot be removed. Yet, he mentions the 3.5mm jack on the headset. What does he think HP put that jack there for? HP, and several reviewers that actually know what they're talking about, not only say that the phones are completely removable, they even show you how its done. Those other reviewers also comment on the surprisingly excellent sound quality of the built-in phones.

Was it all just typos and poor editing? Possibly. I must say though that its a little baffling to see that a few people have posted here saying that they have already written the Reverb off, based on that obviously erroneous review that seems like it was written by someone who didn't actually even have either headset in their hands.

Watched this one last night when it went live. I was really happy to see that he didn't forget us simmers in his testing. Looks like I made the right choice in placing my pre-order with Amazon yesterday.

Speaking for myself, my comment about ‘keeping my Vive Pro a little longer’ was very much tongue-in-cheek!
Let’s see what DCS users have to say as well as some proper in-depth reviews.

Yeah same here, I already have a Rift S coming and may get the Reverb as well, but want to see what actual users in here have to say about it.
If it is very positive I will get the Reverb for flight simming and use my Rift S for all my Oculus Touch games.
