Just ordered one (and cancelled on Amazon). Too bad I won’t receive it before my 4 week holiday this summer. But oh well, still looking forward to it


#424

Well, we will wait for your review :beers: :grinning:

And I have not yet decided until the end what to do with the Pimax 8K.
And I also have hopes for the same Acer headset with IPD adjustment. I hope he will not stay long on the way to the shop windows after Reverb.

And still holding me back from buying Reverb is the 8K-X output this year with native
4K panels. This is my dream, because 8K in general suits me, pleases with wide FOV every day, but I don’t have enough high resolution …

(although maybe I can not stand it and take Reverb in the near future, let’s see :laughing: )

In the meantime, it will be interesting to listen to the review.


It seems I don’t want HP Reverb and any other headset except 8K-X anymore :sweat_smile:

LETS GO LADSSSS

This is from the uk hp store if you’re wondering


#428

Getting mine too , hope the sweet spot is as wide as they say to accommodate my 67.5mm ipd


#429

Just have ED209 accept delivery. :beers::smirk::+1::sparkles:


#430

Nice! Really interested in your first impressions


#431

Now to make every one who is getting the reverb upset:


#432

Not really, 600$, compared to 6000$ + 1000$ yearly fee. Excluding taxes. And this is only the VR-1 model, you can imagine the xr price.


#433

Yeah better to grab an Xtal. :beers::smirk::+1::sparkles:

Quick note on the Reverb , I’ve played a few hours with it
ipd / the horizontal sweet spot is large enough to give me (67.5 ipd) a clear centered image but it blurs within a mm or so of movement if I move the position of either lens towards the center so I think it’s a stretch to imagine that these will be suitable for much larger than 79 ipd’s
SDE well it’s just apparent at times if you look for it like looking close to a 1080p tv screen ( from a meter or so ),
Resolution for reading text and fine detail it’s a noticeable improvement over all the previous headsets that I have used but not such a big deal for games etc.where it’s just noticeably better/clearer
FOV I measured it in the steam environments realovirtual app and by my measuring positioning /eyes etc
vive pro = 100 fov
reverb = 100 fov
pimax small setting =120 fov
It was bright enough and the blacks looked ok to me , generally similar experience to the pimax 5k+ but a better resolution ( not as big a perceivable difference as it was from the vive to vive pro but noticeable )
The vertical height does appear a bit less .
The reverb needed no messing or re-positioning really because of the large sweetspot and comfortable headstrap
Sound was fine
Cable is clunky and short at 4m
My (4k 60hz ) dp extension cable kept losing signal but I believe some can work ok

I removed the face cushion and tried a 6mm vive face cushion , It did improve the fov by about 10% but I could see the edges of the panels etc and my nose was in the way , maybe find some other face cushion that allows me to get closer with some comfort

if I had to rate it against the other headsets that I have it would be as follows
overall experience not just resolution or fov etc

vive = 1
wmr=3 (not odyssey )
Vive gear lens =3
vive pro = 5
vive pro gear lens = 7 ( oled ,good contrast and colour , 100 fov )
pimax 5k+ =7 (good lcd image , minimal sde , wide fov)
hp reverb = 7 ( very good lcd image , no sde high resolution , 100 fov )

Just my point of view ,

I have the wireless vive pro gear / pimax and hp reverb now
and need to decide which two to sell on

edit
All using a 1080ti with as much ss as I could get away with

Want a headset that incorporates all the best features of the above


#435

Thanks for the hands on. Are you looking into the Index at all?


#436

I put my name down on the steam reservation list but I’ve got enough headsets just now , 120hz is probably more important if you play for extended periods without breaks

edit
I think the hardware is now ahead of the software as far as VR goes
not many games will shine on the reverb or use Index 120hz/144 hz
with the Quest most developers will be distracted now too


#437

Isn’t that what ED is all about?


#438

While lower res if you can get a psvr on cheap can be decent for 120hz


#439

Hmm sounds a bit disappointing, I had expected that you’d at least prefer it over the 5k+, but you’re rating it similar. Anyway a lot can change after a few days of testing, my first experience with the Odyssey+ was bad, I only started loving it after some days of tweaking it, maybe the same goes for the Reverb.


#440

BTW, what about mura? Did you notice any? And did you mod that SteamVR setting that limits rendering to 4k?


#441

Yes he needs more time with it.
For the rating I think its reasonable, the HP has high res and the Pimax has wide FOV both things can be nice.
I hope I can order the HP soon

Well done nothing but play with the reverb this afternoon and will revise my previous post a bit
It’s has phenomenal clarity but we’re lacking the things to look at that can show it’s potential ,
I found anything close in most games like flight sims / car sims looks really good , but so far the best visual experience for me has been the Holo tours from microsoft store , the 360 video quality through this device is as though your really there in the balloon or on the mountain remarkable clarity , trouble is 360’s of this quality are few and far between .
The reverb’s resolution knocks spots off all other hmd’s that I have used for video stuff too

Haven’t noticed any mura at all so far

But for general steam games I thing the massive resolution bump is not so noticeable
