Funny. I just ordered a Rift S to replace my Odyssey+This thread is very interesting and I'd like to thank people that have posted. I pre-ordered the Rift S last night, but on reading this thread I have now cancelled that and am instead considering the Odyssey+ (which works out the same price delivered if I use Big Apple Buddy). I love all the specs of the Rift-S except that they've dropped the OLED - and this is the prime reason I cancelled my pre-order.
I'm going to spend this evening going through the various HMDs.
My main concern about the Odyssey+ is the tracking. It is inside out, the same as the Rift? Has anyone had problems with it?
The biggest problem with the O+ is the black smear. I can't take it any longer.
In low lit scenes, with allot of contrast, when I move my head, the whole world follows.
The darker and more contrast, the more it is apparent.
This is a problem with all OLED screens, but it is particularly bad in this one.
What is the point of great black levels when it causes awful distortions..
The tracking is very good for Elite, as long as you keep the room well lit.
But then another problem with the headset is the poor fit. Unless you mod the headset, there will be huge gaps between the headset and your face, and with a well lit room comes allot of light bleed.
edit: lol NVM didnt check the date of your post.. Did you get the O+ btw?
