Why I'm a Hypocrite When I Say Get a Quest, Not an Index

Comrade_IvanComrade_Ivan Posts: 107
I thought about writing a long post about Quest's amazing modability (and how to get an extra 15 degrees in FOV), but then I thought it would take me too long to write it. So I opted to do a video instead.

I'm not affiliated with any of the product sellers/manufacturers in the video:

    You can't get hold of the HTC head strap anymore from what I've heard.

    Strange thing about that glue issue - I have not noticed such a problem. I've only cleaned the lenses once in 6 months, because I use glasses the lenses do not get dirty - at all (the CV1 did more, maybe Index has less air influx when in use...). Never seen the glue issue mentioned on Index Reddit, maybe you could make a post about it? 
    I have the Index in a bag when not in use - so far no dust problems. Same goes for CV1 ;)

     Thanks Ivan, I've been thinking about a more comfortable and easier to clean face gasket solution. I tried without the gasket and yes I think you're onto something there, going to try this.
