CV1: Sell it or Keep it?

For any existing Rift CV1 owners who plan to upgrade to Rift-S... what will you do with your legacy Rift CV1?
Pre-orders start shipping soon. Almost time to say bye-bye to physical sensors.

Sold it and maximized it's resell value now, and use that money towards the S.
The design defects with the right ribbon cable failure and the failing IPD adjustment are ticking time bombs.  It's gonna happen, it's just a matter of when.

Besides, the S has so many quality of life improvements.  The 21st can;t get here soon enough !!

My Rift CV1 has served me quite well for 2.5 years. Never a moments trouble. And I am talking practically daily use here ever since getting it. Dang thing has just been solid as a rock all along.
Even with my paying full original price, I feel I have more than got my money's worth.

It will be a little sad unplugging it for likely the last time, but hopefully the excitement I will get after strapping the new Rift S on will quickly make me so glad I did this upgrade. 
If this is the case, as for my CV1 - I will gently pack her back up in the original box, and put up and away in a safe space for retirement. I will not be selling it, but will keep for nostalgic reasons. And at some point in a few years time, if I am still around, pull her out of the box and reminiscent of how VR once was, and what my first VR experience was like.

Well I voted that I'm keeping it because I'm not selling it. I'm going to give it to a mate and his family because they've been great to me over the years and he recently lost his job and started a lesser paid one. B)

I'll never sell my CV1. Take it to the grave I will! Eventually I will pick up an S on sale, but my heart will always be with my original Rift.  ❤️

Love the cool picture, that's awesome!!

I'm thinking I will definitely keep my Rift CV1 forever as a collectors item. I can show the grand-kids one day when they're in the Oasis what granddad you used to use 50 years prior to them being born and they will probably laugh at me! And then when I die they can have it and then sell it on ebay for 50k. And then using that money they can take a trip to Yellowstone National Park in USA and spread my ashes across the park.  😛

I will sell my 2 touch controllers and 2 sensors but keep the actual headset. Anyone interested?

Not going to hold onto at least one of the sensors in case Hybrid Tracking becomes a thing?

Or did you already have more than just the two?
It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

Too hard to pass up, especially since I fought Thanos in my Rift! 🙂
