[QUOTE=Marujet;4122070]I did the opposite, should I be worried?

No... At least until it breaks and you have to use the warranty...

And both are as great upgrades from Rift CV1 and alike.

The most important thing really is, that it is pleasure to fly.... Nothing else matters in specs wise.
Specs matter....

I own both.
For DCS (or generally simulations), the Reverb is the choice. It IS better than the Rift S for that purpose, even if some people don't like to hear that or can't accept it.

For ALMOST everything else, the Rift S is the better device. The only exception might be things where you have to read tiny text but that's hardly ever necessary in VR, IMO.

I would like to upgrade to a higher resolution unit but I'm spoiled with the blacks of the OLED screens and absolutely have to have a mechanical IPD adjustment for my fat head. C'mon Samsung...

Speaking of samsung. I'm actually hoping they are paying attention and will release a "reverb killer" next year. With high res RGB layout OLED panels, and comperable FOV and better lens designs and adjustable IPD.
