Well, they did have a more "enterprise" level set of kit from what I remember that was on a different level, but that's not what I was used to dealing with, it was mostly the middle of the line or less, budget office laptops and "as cheap as we could get it" desktops.

So yea, Epson and HP, a couple of brand logo's that often just gives me a pre-emptive psychosomatic migraine..

Once place was nice, they where on the premium service plan on Dell instead.

Sure it was during that whole thing where the mobo capacitors would blow like the zits on a teenagers face, but all we did there was take the box in, hand them a new one.

Then tell Dell how many units we had for pickup and needed replacement on a weekly basis...
The "someone else's headache plan" I call it

Here is a user made Rift S review after receiving his unit early from shipping error. It has some in- headset pics. He also has some really good commemts regarding clarity in comparison to the Vive.

From an Enterprise point of view their Blades, Blade Enclosures and SAN's are awesome.
Better by a mile than IBM sh*t anyway. Had nothing but problems with IBM. IBM's Enterprise Support is 2nd to none though. HP's is right up there too though.

I'm interested to see how this pans out for use with motion rigs.
I currently use the NLR v3 motion platform and it works very well with one single Oculus sensor placed directly in front of me. I'm hoping the Rift S works with no dramas but I have a feeling I will have issues with the pilot head bopping in and out of the canopy, I'll test these theory soon enough.

None of this makes me any better but it sure is fun to fly

Just pre ordered one for the 21st.
I don’t have a vive, meaning that the Index and Reverb would be a lot more expensive.
I’m also thinking that I can try at home, and if I’m not impressed by the improvement vs the Rift, then I can simply return it.

That Reddit review above from a week experience and comparison to the Vive Pro is a good sign.
(https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comm...e_comparaison/)

No need to stress hardware by increasing resolution a lot if we can get big clarity increase by going to LCD panel.

So if the hardware resources are anyways limited, why not take big improvement without extra stress? Ain't that like win-win?

I'm waiting to read more comments from future owners in DCS, but more and more out looks that Rift S will be the best choice to use VR in DCS. By price, performance and quality.

Have never even used a motion rig.

But I would sucpect all these inside out tracking HMD's will havd big problems
They will need some sort of motion cancellation, similar to what I believe exist for lighthouse systems where you mount a controller up.

Problem with that is the controller would always need to be in view.

Is ASW 2.0 support on the list of things to ensure best performance in DCS?

Thanks
