Valve could end up releasing the only functional headset the way things are going. Although to be fair to Oculus the Rift S problems seem to be software issues, not hardware issues.
I didn't find the Reverb Mura to be too much of an issue when playing games, noticeable especially when concentrating on it though and somewhat distracting then. As for ForestGuy - You say the HP Reverb is "slightly clearer" than the 5K+. I think you might be understating it quite a bit. The FOV change didn't bother me that much because the eyes naturally focus on the clear bits in the centre or though it did feel narrow. There are trade offs as with most HMDs these days until someone releases the definitive headset. That said, I am keeping my order once they come back in stock. I doubt the Index is going to match the quality of the image but might be better at other things. The audio is supposedly awesome on the Index.
@forestguy - But the Oculus Quest has the same sized fov. So are you getting another Pimax and if not what headset are you getting?
THe 8KX looks interesting but if the expected price of over a grand just for the headset, count me out. Especially as there are no guarantees it will not be headache inducing and rear all the same issues I have with the 8K all over again. Fk that I'm not paying Pimax more for the privilege unless there are some really sound external reviews from non-employees/testers.
If I get the Hp Reverb, I'm thinking of doing this so that the connection and cable doesn't feel as heavy. I will use electric conduit plastic piping though to do a better job of it and have the connector point down.
@hoppingbunny123 - Yes do it and no more bending cable.
Here's the stuff I used with those measurements 7.2mm-25mm. It's as cheap as
chips on ebay. Just cut down the full length of cable with scissors, then just put cable inside and tape it like I have. The cut just spring back together on the plastic like you didn't even cut it.
Not sure if I should err on the side of caution though when they do get them back in. I would not be pleased if the same issues occur. Maybe it's prudent to wait to see what the general consensus of the Index is and whether the new batches of Reverbs have no issues.
