Here's the performance of your MX230 compared to the 1060, which is the baseline performance to run VR.
Just skip the numbers and look at the colored bars.
It sounds to me like installing the Oculus drivers just switched your default Windows audio device to the Rift Audio as it always does, and you're making a whole deal out of it.
Of course, I could be wrong.
I don't really get this kind of thing.
Is it intended for end users?
If so, who pays for a thing like this knowing it will most probably have ZERO software support, like ever?
Given the infinitely small user base, no one will ever develop for it.
This also happens to me, but is fixed by just unplugging the headset from both USB and DisplayPort before you click the "Update" banner.
This time the update will actually work and stop nagging you.
Same thing if you're performing a clean …

To have the drivers actually install, you need to fully unplug the headset (both DisplayPort and HDMI).
Doing that, the drivers will actually install when you click the red …

The white LED is just a standby light, like mostly every device has.

The standby allows the headset to start the Oculus app the moment it detects you pu…
Well, you have to keep in mind that you have a screen an inch and a half from your f'n eyes, which is tasked with covering your entire field of view (or as much as it can of it) with pixels.
When looking at a monitor you're getting maybe half of th…
It's a true shame.
I'd say sometimes bad reputation due to stuff like this is more relevant as to the success of a company than actually putting out good products.
Say, if Pimax got good press among its customers, it would deserve to destroy Oculus …
