Anyone else get a CV1 with a scratched lens?

Hi everyone,

I noticed my CV1 has a scratched left lens.  I've had it less than a week and treated it like my most valuable possession, so I highly doubt I caused it.  I only noticed it after deciding I should probably clean the lenses, because a little dust settled on them.  Anyone else have this problem?  I contacted support but haven't heard back yet.

Here's a picture:

    Seems like everyone should have a close look on lenses when they will receive theirs rifts. On the other thread someone noticed lots of black dots on the lenses.
  • What was the resolution?

    Whilst waiting for my DK2 I ordered lens covers from ebay and put them on both sets of lenses before i even tried the headset on.

    My home (Kickstarter) unit looks fine, but I did have some slight scratches on my work headset (maybe cause I've been using it for longer). To be honest, the scratches are only noticeable if I hold the headset in my hands and shine a flashlight into the lenses. Through normal usage, they are not a problem or noticeable at all. I wouldn't really worry about it unless it's affecting your ability to use the product.

  • @cybereality I tend to agree, but when you pay $600+ for a piece of hardware it should arrive without any issues. Ya know?

    Yes, I also received the package with the left lens missing the protective foil from it and scratched. Sent it back, they sent me an other one, surprise: this one also was missing the protector from the left lens! Luckily, I don't see any scratches on it...
