    So...Ive had a play about with mine for a couple a hours..and Im sad to say i'm not part of the 'completely blown away' club.  The Godrays on mine are nothing short of horrific,  far worse then I ever imagined. If its true that the lense quality varies from unit to unit I've definitely got a bad 'un.


    Bit of an update fellas;

    The godrays were driving me mad so I stuck it on Gumtree,  A guy came round today to buy it,  I loaded up Oculus Cinema which just looks like a smudged and smeared mess to me and handed him the headset.  He couldn't see what I was talking about.  After looking round for a few more seconds he said he 'thinks' he can see what Im talking about..but it is barely noticeable.

    So,  that kinda proves the godrays dont vary from unit to unit - its just seems to be that they affect different people in different ways.

    I was gonna buy another one hoping I get a 'better' one but im not sure what to do now.  Im actually thinking I should have just kept it now I know (or so it seems) they are all the same.

    I could definitely have put up with the rays if I knew I didn't just have a 'bad' unit - A rift with the rays as I see them is still better than no Rift at all.

He didn't notice what I was talking about and proceeded to buy my Rift.

     Im actually thinking I should have just kept it now I know (or so it seems) thay are all the same. Plastic lens coverings and all...

     I changed your story a wee bit just for the laffs

    Yup,  50 quid.

    But if I order another Im gonna have to wait for it and it might have other issues (red tint etc)

    Really starting to wish I had just kept it.  Despite my less than glowing initial impressions i gave on here i'm missing it already :(

    They are speeding things up a lot now, They triggered a fraud warning on my CC on Wednesday so I got the  "we may have wrong details" email. This left me thinking it would be 4 weeks wait as others have had to reprocess but to my surprise I got the process email tonight (Friday). Hoping it will be here mid week :)

    Did you have have to do anything when you got the "we may have wrong details" email?
    or did it process anyway?

    My estimated dates were 6/6-16/6 and I haven't got anything, not even a response from support. Then I read people getting theirs a month early and it frustrates the hell out of me.

    What frustrates me more is the whole "Best buy" bullshit they pulled off before sending out all the pre-orders...

    I updated payment info with same card details. Then on techy111's advice I sent a ticket to oculus, they replyed that it would be processed in the next batch.

    I've done that too. But since the details are the same I'm worried they will fail again next time.

    Really regret selling mine.   Does anyone know how the 'one per customer' thing works?

    If I pre order another one will they cancel it when they find out Ive already bought one?
