    2019 VR headsets and PC2 discussion

    It's only a few days to go before the first of the 2019 new HMDs, the Rift S, is released, and there are a few more coming down the line during this year, the Reverb from HP, Index, OJO etc, so I thought I'd invite people to share their experiences of Project CARS in these new headsets.
    I'm excited about getting better clarity in the screens and the early signs are encouraging, but there are likely to be some issues also. I've pre ordered a Rift S so I'll post my experiences next week when it arrives, but it will be interesting to see which, if any, comes out on top for sim racing.

    I currently use an Odyssey+, but I have pre-ordered the HP Reverb because I'm drooling over that high resolution.

    Indeed. Nice thread for VR lovers. I stick with my Rift for a while longer. When I need a new PC I also buy a new VR set. For now it is still not worthy to spend another €xxx.xx amount on a new VR set. My guess it will be in 2 or 3 years from now.

    I recently had reason to send my one year Rift back due to the sound issue that they experience. The refurb unit I got back was clearer than my original which was a very welcome surprise and would stop me making a further jump unless the upgrade in quality was massive

    Will be interesting to see those witha CV1 how they feel the S compares - im looking to make the jump but will wait for some reviews first
