Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

Had one, returned it because of no external base station tracking. Internal camera room tracking only and lights are definitely needed to be on if its dark for tracking. If you play FPS games, dont use a rift s, get the index.

In regards to the displayport length limitations, I tried a 15ft extension cable and it does *not* work. I tested the cable on my monitors and it "tried" to work but eventually fails. 15ft seems to be the upper limit for the displayport cable (which is a rather annoying limitation for VR). For beatsaber there is a mod included in the mod manager for tweaking the saber angle.

Quite frankly, VR just doesn't interest me at all. Plus the price is ridiculous. Unless they get seriously real on the price or, I happen to win the lottery, I'll never own one as I just don't see the value in it. Don't get me wrong, it's fun, it's just not what I'm after experience-wise.

Cool to see all of the new tech, although for me personally I'm satisfied with Playstation's VR setup for now. It really impressed me with how little it took to get a decent experience. Interested for sure to see where things go, currently definitely don't have the means to drop that cash in though.

Just got an Index, I probably need prescription lenses to help, since my brother and I are near sighted, but it would help if they had some ability to adjust the digital depth of field, and most everything I play might be less blurry. But a major problem is for Gorn. Im not sure what it is, everything looks fine, but turning too much and moving causes serious motion sickness for me and my brother, as well as persistent eye pain and needing to readjust to my own depth perception after only 10 minutes of use. My brother says he always closes his eyes when using the elevator in Gorn, because it fucks with his eyes, and I cant turn more that 50 degrees at a time. We both haven't had this problem with any other VR game, just Gorn.

@EVOLICIOUS Granted, there aren'y many "out there" versions/systems in the public eye but... there ARE more of the AR based than there are VR..... good example, Ski goggles that SHOW you the path you need to take... not to mention, temp.. time of day and time on slope... the VR guys don't REALLY want you to look at AR.. simply because it's more readily useable than VR... .

The reason moving to 120Hz wouldn't show a difference is if your system isn't running at that speed. I've seen it on other reviews too. If your machine isn't fast enough (980 Ti), then that might be the issue. Lowering the render resolution should fix that. Because of the way VR renders to the headset, 1:1 resolution to headset pixel isn't 1:1. SteamVR has a way to modify it so you render say 1.5x or 2x the resolution of the headset to account for this discrepancy. If you're rendering at too high a resolution (the Index is higher resolution than the Vive), then your 980 Ti might not be able to keep up. That's my assumption on that paddle game. You'd know for sure if you measured frame times.

LCD varies. LCD is pretty advanced nowadays so their are hundreds of different kinds of LCD displays that differ greatly from eachother. The BOE display in the Index vs. the JDI display in the HP Reverb, very different LCD displays with completely different functions.

@Cole Keeton "little work", by you mean endless tweaking to get everything aligned correctly every time you boot up and of course you need lighthouses and steamvr controllers. Really, if you have a vive or index, there is no point in using a Rift at that point, lmao.
