Mine is a test in crack endurance. See what develops over time. I now have additional 2 cracks on the front face place LHS when the front is facing away. From the bottom to the mid section.
Additional crack on RHS second line down where the faceplace meats the back part of the headset. and some small cracks on the bottom of the faceplate. The original crack has deepened but still the headset is functional.
I keep a hold of it until it doesn’t become functional or before the year is up. Then get it exchanged for same or pay a bit to upgrade to the 8K-X
The faceplate plastic is very poor and seems to be suffering from a combination of heat and poor assembly where the retaining screws were to tight for the material used. A thin gasket in the assembly between the faceplate and the main body of the headset might have helped but I think the faceplace needs a redesign with thicker plastic and only thin circular dimples where the Tracking LED’s are. If not on the outside like the Vive, then on the inside.
That aside, still love using the headset.
