To clarify that a little more, yes there is a zoom in VR, however it's only something like x2, not the ridiculous telescope that is available when using a monitor.

Went from 3 40” TVs, a touchscreen gauge/Helios monitor, and head tracking to a Samsung Odyssey. No comparison. I wouldn’t recommend the lower resolution of the Rift or Vive though if you want to be able to spot bogies and read the gauges.

Don't get the rift...


It's old.


Get the Samsung odyssey.




Also... to directly answer the question ... I have a 60Hz 40" 4K that does 14ms and I have a Vive. I don't use the 40" 4K for any cockpit sim at all.

The Rift works fine when setup correctly, so stop spreading misinformation.

Really don't want to get into a mine is better than yours situation but try before you buy. Personally with my fat head I find the oculus rift a lot more comfortable than the Samsung odyssey. Also as I use separate headset the removable headphones was useful.

Thank you all for your input.
I ended up buying the rift, knowing that in a year's time or so, I would purchase the next gen (and probably upgrade my gpu with it...).

See you in the skies!

I came into this thread late, but have a 27" 144 hz 1440 monitor. Got that before the Oculus Rift. I think you will enjoy the VR a lot.
One thing that I truly believe is that at this stage of VR it will be VERY individual taste. I like the resolution of the monitor, but the emersion of the VR is hard to beat.

BTW, if a game has VR, I do VR.
