First thing I noticed was the black levels are no where near as good as the Quest 1. But oh damn, that display is sharp.
SDE is NOT gone, but it is massively reduced. I notice it mostly looking at UI and reading text.
Thank God setting 2 fits my IPD best because the loss of FOV in setting 3 is really bad.
I was gutted the elite strap has been delayed for me but I was pleasantly surprised by the built in one, it feels more comfortable to me than the Quest 1 strap so far, let's see how I feel after extended use though.
This might be a placebo, but is the tracking more responsive? Just feels like a sliver of delay has been shaved off.
