Long time DK2, CV1 users, today I bought the Rift S on an impulse

Hi everyone, long time user (used to be a mod here as well), I had no intention of buying the S when I saw the specifications and my main disapointment is with the audio, but today some user reviews have started popping up on reddit and it looks like the S is a winner (minus the audio).

Someone says the clarity is like going from 480p to 1080p so lets hope this is tru, because it did convince me.
Let's just hope there are not user reviews that are motivated by trying to justify their own purchases. I will report back with a detailed analysis once I have it.  I will design and 3D print something to put some decent headphones on it, a bit like Tested did but better ๐Ÿ˜‰

I'm managing my expectations with the resolution, I mean I'm expecting a noticeable improvement but I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than expect too much.


To be fair what is praised the most is the "clarity" not necessary the resolution, clarity is basically an equation that includes the resolution, the SDE and the optics, so I hope I will be pleasantly surprise


Yep, when I say resolution I really mean overall clarity and that also includes the software rendering. I don't want to sound over cautious, just from past experience with each launch there can be a bit of seesawing from pessimism to optimism to realisation.... I'm trying to stay slightly downbeat to maximise (hopefully) my enjoyment when I experience it.

By the way max, hope you hang around in the forum for a while mate.


I posted my review, and I am always around (quoting Superman in Superman Returns lol)
