So I got eyes on a HP G2 V2 yesterday at a friends place.
My first experience with the G2V1 was not good.
I suffered from the minute sweet spot issue that some have reported and returned it.
I had even tried the 3dprinted gasket to get the lenses closer to my eyes.
So strangely I can confirm the V2 the sweet spot was much larger than before and actually pretty sharp across the whole lense.
I think the investigation MRTV did to debunk the headset manufacturing variance wasn’t a good enough test to disprove anything.
Unless HP changed the lenses themselves for the V2. I know the big change was that they brought the eyes closer.
Anyway I am also quite pleased to say I can finally close the Reverb G2 chapter because whike everything was clear I cant say for my eyes that the screen was any clearer than the 8KX.
Plus missing that gorgeous FOV it’s no contest. The audio was a bit better than the DMAS but mainly due to the horrible buzz the DMAS has. (unsolvable)
