With all the faulty headsets launched recently I'm not even exited about my next VR headset. The excitement has being replaced with which headset should I buy and will I have to arse around sending it back due to faults.
I tried the Index for the first time today and I'm globally disappointed. I've got the left stick issue, it doesn't click well when pushing forward and it can loose the registered action so in arizona sunshine for example I may stop running if I push the stick right forward. Really annoying. There are others issues. The comfort of the knuckles are not as good as touch controllers. It doesn't feel natural at all and the sticks are difficult to reach. Let's talk about the headset itself now. The fov is comparable to Odyssey+, but with a slightly better horizontal fov. Nothing spectacular but really nice. It adds to immersion for sure. BUT... there is a big problem with the LCD panels on my device. I can see vertical lines of pixels on certain textures/colors when moving my head. Really, really annoying ! In Beat Saber it's very distracting. I tried to switch frequencies, changing resolution, steamVR beta but nothing helped.Too much for 1080€. Refund. I prefer my Rift S !
YOU know you want to I presume you are sitting at breakfast, drinking coffee smiling at the family and pretending you don't want to rip it open like a lunatic.
I opened the box this way - carefully so I'm still able to return it:
Tilted the box 90 degrees and gravity helped a lot:
Info on left side of the box - I removed the serial numbers:
Info on right side of the box:
- Compared to the CV1 bundle the Index box definitely is much bigger - and I'd say more impressive in quality too, although I really love the CV1 box (which has a handle like a suitcase, the Index box doesn't):
CV1 is on top
I love to collect stuff in mint condition - and I often find it very hard to remove shrink wrapping from comic books, sometimes leading me to buy two so I don't have to remove the shrink wrapping and ruin the mint condition for one book
Clearly my biggest problem today will be to break the seal
BTW, this does show - I think - that I've received an unopened (non-refurbished) Index - but I don't know if that's a good or bad thing, because then Knuckles probably have not been through new QA... Yeah, I know, Harry said it before:
Just open the damn thing. It's your B'day which means you get to do what you want to do. Isn't that the whole point? Kids go play outside (make sure they have sunscreen today). Wife, help me unpack.Sorted.
Happy Birthday Runes. Is it here yet? 😀
Damn, if your wife ever reads this thread Rune you're in big trouble.
Seems like everything's there
Including that rug... @Techy111 good one man. Yeh c'mon spill thee beans Rune. £1000 bux on yourself how much on the missus? And to put things in perspective for you. I bought the Microsoft Laptop 2 for just under a £1000 for my missus this year and took her to dinner at The Shard.
So you didn't go on the cruise as well then
Well you're in good stead then. My missus cruise is later this year Anyhow I just got shipping info excuse the poor pun. They use GLS is this the same as yours? From the Netherlands? Never-heard-of-em-lands before excuse the equally poor pun again.
Base stations are bigger/wider than I expected, Spidey illustrates scale:
