    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've had my Index for about a week. I've had no problems with it. It is my upgrade from the cv1. I would have bought a cv2 had it been available.  I'm very happy with the new HMD in all respects.  No problem with the joystick in Skyrim, great display, comfortable headset.  It has justified my purchase and I have not been tempted to go back to the rift.  I might have jumped ship but will watch with interest to see what Oculus comes up with beyond the rift-s.

    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 !
    Yea that sounds like a bad panel. I experienced nothing like that.

    It's disconcerting to say the least. 

    In another curve ball life has thrown me,  I reluctantly sold my Index. :D A friend made me an offer I couldn't refuse and I told him to put his money where his mouth is and show up with cash...well he did. I pointed out the issues I had to him and made sure he understood why I'd consider selling it but he still wanted it...so it got sold. 

    I'm jealous of the people that are not distracted by what I see and get completely blown away and immersed by it.

    Not sure what direction I'll go from here but I'm curious to read how others here perceive it. I still have a net positive opinion of the Index kit. A part of me wants to re-buy it and see if the lens is any better with a different unit but with my kids consuming more and more of my VR time lately I'm not sure that I will.

    Not sure I've seen many shots of the real box and packing, but the mailman just delivered this - and the wife is still in a good mood - said something like "you knew that package would arrive today, right?"  :) Spidey just to show the scale, weight on the package 7.83 kg (17.26 lbs) - it's heavy - package looks in perfect shape, no sign of any damage:




    Not sure if I should open it - right now everything is perfect, not sure that'll continue when I try the controllers ;) Maybe I've got another Schrödinger's cat in my hands, quite hard to pick the perfect time to open the box to see if it's alive or dead, lol.

    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.

    I think once Boneworks and Valves first VR game arrive we will see the true potential of Knuckles unleashed. For now we just see the downsides of the Knuckles click issue and HMD lens flare. 

    How long before we see a Index wireless kit?  There’s a whole second phase of Index to come, Valve are just getting Kit out the door and not even reached a world wide release yet. The best is yet to come.

    I'll try to get it set up later today, but probably it won't be before the evening - a few guests are coming over - have to get food ready etc. so kids aren't the main problem today ;)
     
    BTW, this is a slightly delicate situation - she just noticed the giant box, realized it wasn't a comic book and wasn't exactly pleased (VR isn't very social in her mind). I'm so happy I got the package today - getting it tomorrow (her birthday) I may have felt like Donald Duck meeting the gorilla  :# :D

    Happy Birthday Runes. Is it here yet? 😀
    Thanks - just saw your post - it's here - but I'm taking it slow - each base station must be perfectly angled, just getting that right may take me hours  B) And it's hard to perform this kind of surgery today and tomorrow. Maybe I should call some of my wife's friends and invite them over tomorrow so she'll be occupied  >:)

    I know, but not compared to her reading my journal at Collectors' Society, lol
    I'm alone with the kids next week that's when I've planned to focus more on the Index. It took me months to get everything perfect with the CV1, having to evaluate Index in just 14 days already starts to feel slightly stressful. My primary concern is simply to set up and check if the hardware is working correctly - second concern is evaluating if SteamVR games and apps experiences are improved compared to CV1 (res 200% = ss 2.0). Third concern will be Revive etc.

    @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.

    Except there's another layer with more parts than the first!

    I'm still wondering what the heck Valve has in store for the passthrough/AR cameras. They still aren't activated, officially anyway.

    In my case, I gave her nothing. We have split finances for personal spending. She spends hers how she wants and I spend mine.

    I'm actually kind of in the doghouse for selling it though as she loved it. I told her to use her own money to buy one as I couldn't pass up the profit.  :D

    It's a hand-woven Persian carpet, but yeah it's a matter of taste, guess I've gotten used to it ;) You'd love the Hulk-green couch with Galactus-colored cushions too, lol. 

    The wife just got her cruise - price more than 5 Indices (Index plural = Indices according to Gabe) for 8 days, must be enough. Also means that the Index only costs 1½ days at sea, lol. BTW, the ship is the 6th largest cruise ship ever built (nearly 6,000 passenger as the max) - and it has the largest screen ever made for a ship - 5200 sq feet dome LED - and they used CV1 to design it:

    Yup, but it was her idea - "happy wife, happy life"  ;) Also building a new raised brick terrace for the house, her idea too, soon I'll need more than the Index!

    Looks like the same - GLS isn't my favorite, I prefer FedEx or UPS, but GLS was very fast this time and handled the package perfectly, probably no need to worry. My package shipped from the Netherlands, so did the CV1 in 2017, I have no idea why Oculus and Valve both ship from the Netherlands.

    Yesterday I took the day off, and was playing Skyrim VR all day in my index running at 120hz, and I must say I was in awe multiple times just looking around this world, INSANE!!!! However. (one of the best VR experiences ive had to date)

    I hope this is some kind of temporary issue but, my FUCKING eye site is jacked up, as I wright this I see the text with ghost text slightly above it. I thought it was sleep in my eyes so I went into the bathroom splashed my eyes a ton of times, used eye drops etc.. and I still see ghost text above all my text. And im tripping HARD. My eye sight has been perfect my whole life, and I have to assume the long session of the index did this to me. (ive spent countless hours in the Vive Pro, no issues EVER) Please anyone else experience this issue I'm facing?  I'm hoping this will subside.

    Mate you may need an eye test to rule anything out. Asap. Stop VR'ing for now until you have had a test and mention VR to the Optician ok?
