Yeah, if I had an O+ id be on the fence too. But clarity wise its supposed to be a decent step up. For me its a no brainer as I have an OG rift. Unless the rift S is beats my expectations.

It should be a big step up - it's not only more than twice as many pixels, it's also an RGB screen instead of a pentile screen so the sub-pixel difference is massive. In pure pixels it's 2.1 million vs 4.6 million per eye, but in sub-pixels it's 4.1 million vs 14 million, in the same FOV. There should be essentially no screen door whatsoever with this headset and the extra detail should be massive. Just for comparison, I'm hearing that the Reverb will have 25PPD, this is what the other headsets have right now (I stole this from someone else, so the Pimax 5K isn't here):

DK2/PSVR 960/100=9,6 PPD - 89% (-11% to CV1/Vive)
CV1/Vive 1080/100=10,8 PPD - 100% (referent point for comparison)
Pimax4K 1280/100=12,8 PPD - 119% (+19% to CV1/Vive)
Odyssey/Vive Pro 1440/100=14,4 PPD - 133% (+ 33% to CV1/Vive)

Pimax8KX 3840/150=25,6 PPD - 237% (+137% to CV1/Vive)
The Reverb is a massive leap in PPD - basically to the level of the Pimax 8KX but in a normal 110deg FOV.

I've not been a follower of WMR headsets up to now, so know very little about them. Does WMR have any type of motion smoothing similar to ASW and ATW?

Thinking of fps here.

Looks pretty good. May have to upgrade to one from my Rift.
I'll wait for some reviews for DCS first though.

Yep it has motion smoothing.

Yeah that is a huge plus. Oculus needs to get off their butt regarding PC-VR. They well might lose this loyal customer soon.

And yes 25PPD is "almost" the holy grail of 30ppd where things start to look "good enough" From there I think its gonna be slow hard slog to retial resolution of 70ppd.

The only thing that worries me is how well DCS is gonna handle it. The Pimax 5k is kicking DCS's ass by all accounts. We need that VR optimization.

If I were you, this is what I would be looking at getting.

Decision made. Reverb will be my next headset, providing we don't have the whole Odyssey shenanigans where it is unavailable in Europe.....

Unless valve offers something mind blowing in the next few months.
