Just got a email update shipping from ShopBLT, they said my item is set to arrive to them by 6/12. Looks like I'm in the Tennessee warehouse. Can't wait.

Hmmm - The MRTV video was ok. Everyone focuses on the cockpit. With the o+ and now the Rift S, that really isn't so much the issue. What I want to see is what happens outside...


Carrier - how bad do the lines crawl?
Aircraft - are the lines sharp enough to IFF planes between 1-3 km?
Map - how does it perform when over a battlefield or over a heavily building city like Dubai.


Color me disappointed. He didn't address any of these for me. I know its hard to hold the camera and HMD, but that is something that should have been sorted before the vid. He's a good guy, and he did get to the point this time very quickly, just not in depth enough to make it worth watching unfortunately. If you've seen his other vids, he just retread that ground.

Great. I can stop breathing into a paper bag and repeating " it'll be alright with a 9900K and 2080TI, it'll be alright with a 9900K and 2080TI..."

Seems like it runs ok with shadows on. I wish he listed his settings/rig... 1080ti is nice to know, but proc and DCS settings would be better.

Not really convinced by this video, he zooms in in the cockpit all the time, the rest doesn't look that great. Commendable attempt, but I'll wait for a review from someone who knows how to turn autopilot on and spent some time flying DCS in VR so it's not immediately smitten by the graphics.

I'd buy it right away for science, but seems like I'll need to wait longer in the UK.

Does someone know if he uses SSampling? Is SS needed with such a resolution anyway?

Lol why wouldn't it be? It's not like you can get a more powerful card.

Hey everyone,

As mentioned earlier, I had an HP Reverb loaner coming this week and it arrived yesterday. Wow! This is truly a banner year for VR and the Reverb is a huge part of that. I can’t and won’t compare to other products, but here are some of my impressions after about an hour in the device:
  • As expected, the resolution of the displays really sets it apart. Even in cockpits with very small texts, it is possible to read. Clarity is approaching 2D monitor levels and I could see no evidence of SDE. It is a GREAT VR device for DCS World. I personally did not notice any god rays and the blacks were quite deep.
  • I’m personally a big fan of inside-out tracking. I don’t really “do” room-scale VR, so the ease of setup, maintenance of tracking, and freeing up USB ports is a huge plus for me.
  • Even with the higher resolution, I did not notice any appreciable performance loss outside of my expectations given the nature of VR. Performance was quite good.
  • I really can’t comment on the hand controllers because I don’t use them.
  • Comfort was very nice and I felt very “at home”. There was also very little light bleed through the nose area which I appreciate.
  • I have a rather narrow IPD (59), but I was still able to get a great setting.
Later this month I will send the device to our team to allow native support (no SteamVR requirement)

There are a growing number of outstanding VR options this year, and I believe it will come down to your budget available and the features you prize most. If outstanding resolution, inside-out tracking, and comfort rank high for you, I can certainly give the Reveb my stamp of approval.

Well done HP!

Thanks,
Wags
