  • Highlights of Reverb G2

    • Sharper display: Same res but Valve lenses and higher contrast LCD panels
    • Manual IPD adjustment
    • Thinner cable - G1 very bulky
    • 4 cameras for inside out tracking
    • Different head strap
    • Not clear if it is more comfortable if the G1 presses on your nose like it does for me
    • Same FOV - I heard earlier it was higher
    • Those great Valve headphones/speakers - just wish FS2 audio was better to appreciate it

    For a next gen I would have liked higher FOV, so it doesn't seem worth a switch from G1 to G2, but it does make the Reverb a much more compelling proposition. Hopefully it will add some momentum to the Windows Mixed reality platform so they keep improving it.
