Why the quest 2 can be a huge upgrade for many people.

I understand that some people have big problems with their quest 2 for reasons we have all seen posted but for me and many other people it is a huge upgrade. I have felt like that for  the last few days. Playing wirelessly with virtual desktop for me worked maybe 25% of the time that it was playable without to much latency. Vd just did an update where latency was reduced further and the last few days my games were playable every time. I played Pavlov where the latency was so little (not 100 %) that it was a joy and maps looked amazing. Not g2 amazing but still very crisp and you could see clearer than before from a distance. I like  pavlov on sidequest buy maps are limited. Skirim looked and played great. With the elite strap it's more comfy than my rift s that i retired. And to jump in quick without my computer when I feel like it is amazing. The link now looks much better than the rift s since the latest v23 update if I  need it Some games may not work wirelessly. The official link cable is very light and half the diameter than the rift s cable making playing more comfortable. The fov for me is noticeably better than the rift s. Happy gaming to all!

Just give your Q1 another go mate.  With the latest Quest/PC v23 and the right settings, the Q1 is looking very good now.

Yeah I will have to check it out, with new GPU should be able to SS more also.

Ya, with my measly 1080ti I'm able to use OTT and set SS to 1.5x for most things (and game profiles for ones that needed more or less SS).  Your 3090 should do 2.0x easy!  I just left the v23 Oculus Link settings to 72Hz (only choice anyway) and auto (=1.0).  I then set OTT Link settings to pull down +1080ti/2080ti (distortion = low, encoding res = 3648) and set bitrate = 500 (although I don't really see much difference beyond 250 but I also do not see any performance diffs at 500 so I just left it there). 

I gotta say that for most games this is giving my good old Rift cv1 (at 2.o SS) a real run for it's money.  My Vive Pro is still a lot better with sims like X Plane 11 though and I'm sure that will be the case with you nice new G2 as well.  Pretty hard to beat dedicated PCVR headsets for more demanding apps like flight/racing sims imho.

The Q2 is very nice but I had a few issues with mine so it went back to the Oculus store for a refund (which I got earlier this week).  Still a lot of life left in the Quest 1 imho, esp. for guys that need a bit more fine-tuned ipd and like OLED panels.

It's weird what happened. When I got my quest 2 it was hard for me to set up my account with ongoing face book and my original account. I accidentally hit add new account. It wouldn't let me back out so oculus said I should just continue as a new account.
