Just got the G2 delivered this morning, which is replacing the G1.  Hooked it up to DCS jumped in a F16 in the Falklands and had a look around.


Image quality is absolutely fantastic with no tracking issues at all (with the G1 it used to stop tracking due to low light in my office when i looked down at the side consoled, but then when returning to normal front view it used to snap back, non of that with the G2).  Defo well worth the cost IMPO


Thanks Specter

Good choice! Been running mine strong every day for about the last 2.5 weeks, loving it.

Damit, mine is ordered for 6 weeks but no news of stocks.


I might have one without controllers quicker. Are the controllers usable in DCS? I'm quite happy with the Oculus Touch controllers but if the G2 ones are not so usable, I'd could switch to the mouse.

Received mine this week, very happy with it.  Was a bit of a risk as my IPD is 73 but no issues.  Have sold my Valve Index, the Index has a bit wider FOV and better controllers but I have had no tracking issues with the G2 and its a lot more comfortable to wear for extended periods, played a mixture of stuff including sim racing and Alyx.  Also played Eleven table tennis which needs a high refresh rate and good controllers, thought I would have to forego this but was playable, not as good as the high refresh rate of the Index but OK.  Sims is 80% of its use and the resolution and lack of glare is a big plus.  WMR is a bit of a pain but OK once I got through the learning curve.  Also got back a lot more money for the Index than I paid for the G2.


Not really tried DCS much yet as my Virpil stuff is unavailable at present due to my son moving back in for a while.  Running a 1080ti for now and was surprised at how ell it ran with this, Hopefully will get a 6900xt or 3080 / 3080Ti  sometime next year when things settle down, but for now the 1080Ti is fully usable with my 9900k.


Overall very please with the G2.

Please forgive the stupid question, but do any of you use your HP reverb in the DCS version you download from their website (not steam or through steam VR). I got one for Christmas and have been unable to get it to open in VR despite enabling it in the settings tab as some comments have suggested in other forums. Thank you in advance if any can help me.
