you sure? I think I saw a difference, because I had to tone it back down also.

Well, I'm gonna try it once I get my reverb replaced.

I'm finding that hard to believe from a PPD standpoint. But I haven't looked at a riftS. Given my shitty experience with HP's warranty I almost pulled the trigger on black Friday deal for a backup RiftS…

I moved my attention to Index. With base stations tracking should be a lot better. Also adjustable lenses will help. The display resolution is lower but I learned already that other features are equally important. I've been using CV1 for 3 years and don't want to switch to a device that is worse in every aspect, except resolution.
I fly in a basement setting with shitty fluorescent lighting. There are 2 things that work, good contrast background (I.e put some art, or sticky notes on your walls) and just overall light level. I have both and never had an issue.

The reverb isn't worse in every aspect. Its equal or better in most. Tracking is the same IMO, colors are better on an oled screen, but all the new headsets use LCD, so the same as them, Res is definitely better. Hand controllers, well, I don't use em so its a moot point.

The only real issue with the reverb I've had is reliability, and warranty, but I literally have one of the first units and they are a known hazard.

Honestly the 3 main things I would "fix" if I were HP.

1. reliability (come on HP, don't hire some 60 IQ engineers)
2. IPD/adjustability (why god why did you make that stupid choice of "fixed"?)
3. Better color def (not sure if its possible with the LCD displays they used)

Otherwise I think it works well at a very competitive price point.

The 3 main things other than the obvious reliability issues would be:

Larger Sweet spot/FOV (rathe obvious issue)
Better color depth (yup, rather obvious issue)
Better res/ppd (mid 20's ppd to mid 40's would be nice)

Default Back to the Rift CV1 after the Reverb

With CV1 I can play in a complete darkness and still have a perfect tracking. I now know that it's not possible with headsets with inside-out tracking.

I already returned my Reverb. I will wait for a headset that suits my requirements or buy Index. If it only had better resolution...

Well, the problem with the index is that they chose FOV over res. Unless you are paying alot of money its an either or thing right now. I do wish the Reverb had a larger sweet spot and/or adjustable IPD to help maximize the sweet spot they have...

I was banking on other headsets following suite on the higher PPD/res angle, but most didn't at all, which I found surprising. Maybe in 2020 we will see a few more high-res options.

Update!

Holy crap HP SUCKS. I was told Monday that I'd have my replacement by the end of the week (Fri)... Just got an update, oh so sorry, stuff is back-ordered until end of JANUARY! They asked if I'd like to escalate the case to "customer care" to which I said yes, and they said they'd be in touch in 1-3 business days. Its been over 2 weeks since I've started this and I'm beyond pissed with HP.

So pro tip if you have the slightest problem with the headset, even if it still works, get on the horn and get in line for a replacement. Cuz 1-2 day "replacments" are in reality 1-2 months.

Ah that sucks. You would think that companies would keep plenty of spares around for warranty purposes alone.

Yeah I'm pretty shocked. The spare cable I ordered similar story, took a month to get it. I think there may be more to the story here too, they may be dealing with tons of returns and replacements. I'll update again once I hear from "customer care".

HP Reverb might be the sales hit HP did not expect (they didn't, they expected all VR manufacturers would be offering 4K by the time they did) and they're coping with up-scaling production perhaps.
