Rated 5 out of 5 by Shane_VR from Currently best headset on the market I have had this headset, since launch and in my opinion it is still the best PCVR headset on the market. All the standalone headsets are way to heavy with their battery packs. I largely play sims, and what I want is light weight, comfort, and high visual quality for long gaming sessions, and this headset delivers. Would buy again, and if they make a G3 I will buy it, assuming they don't give in to the current fad of making heavy cumbersome wireless headsets. Also as of this posting I looked into upgrading, with a budget of $2000, and there is nothing I currently want, so I decided to write a review with how pleased I am with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Moom from Only slightly better than the "other popular headset"! My rating is based on comparison between the Reverb G2 V2 and the "other popular headset" when using them both for Flight Simulator 2020. The Reverb G2 is only slightly better visually than the "other popular headset" using a link Cable. If you own "the other popular headset", it's not worth the upgrade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pepe ggh from Above average. IMHO What I like? I’m 74 years old with most if not all of my faculties. Guess what? I Followed the instructions, rather than my ego and ya know what? Flying MSFS is a Freekin lot easier doing VR. Yep I’m a newb but at that as well. I’m just sayin

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShiftyGrim from Good hardware, terible software. Great hardware let down by the software but at $400 its still compelling for PCVR. The biggest upgrade they could offer would be to have it support SteamVR without HP software running in the background. I constantly get unnecessary popups from the HP software while in game, and it can't be helping performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by balloonanimal from Great for simracing Pretty sweet for simracing. Very clear because of the resolution and mostly easy to use and set up. Just wish the flashlight feature was a full passthrough instead of a small circle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RAMSAM from Still the best I've been using my HPR G2 for a year. I am very satisfied with it. The build quality is very good, the comfort is excellent and the sound excellent too. Setup is easy on Windows 10 with either Mixed Reality Portal or SteamVR. I always use it seated so I can't comment on its qualities in standing action games. For having discussed with several other users with helmets of various brands and models, the HPR G2 still remains the best value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beat Saber Jedi from When it works, it's 5 stars! -1 for requiring WMR, -1 for frustrating setup. Setup was a pain. It's unfortunate that the headset requires Windows Mixed Reality, since features don't seem to work consistently. It would be better if the Reverb could run on Steam VR alone. If your lighting or furniture changes, the headset will forget your room boundaries, fade to gray, and possibly crash Steam VR. When that happens, you may as well restart your whole computer, because you won't be able to launch any apps from WMR after that. The headset settings are not optimized out of the box. Good luck trying to research the correct driver/wmr/steam vr configurations to work around stuttering lag. I have only found opinions, not answers. With all that said, when it works, it's pretty awesome. Not requiring a Facebook account is an A+ feature, and along with the sale price, that was what sold me on the Reverb over competitors. No Man's Sky is gorgeous and immersive... until you turn your shoulders and the screen turns gray. Beat Saber works, but framerate degrades over time, even with my RX 6800 GPU. I have had to return half of the VR titles I purchased because the controllers aren't compatible. I got it on sale for $399.00. I wouldn't recommend paying more than that unless they fix the compatibility issues.

How much better is this vr headset better then my Oculus quest2 How hard is it to set up and run?

Asked by: Zombiekiller196
So basically it depends on what you want. The q 2 has better tracking even with the new update. The update has fixed some tracking issues is what hp says and the connection issues shouldnt be as bad with the updated cable. I've heard they kind of disapeared. The G2 does have a much better resolution and thats the main selling point. These are some of the differences, but go watch a yt vid on them.

With a 3060 Ti graphics card, would performance be in the "full resolution" category?

Asked by: jks17
ACKSHUALLY- it does, and it runs the headset wonderfully. I have a 3060ti and it runs games like Boneworks, Blade and Sorcery, etc at 100% (Have not tested HL:A yet). I don't know how HP has the guts to mention a plain 2060 can meet minimum spec, but a card far above it is not able to.

I got my HP reverb G2 1 month ago and it was working perfect, I swapped out my gpu recently and my vr worked the first time. I tried it again a few days after but it was flickering like crazy and it was super dim. It's unusable and I need suggestions.

Asked by: Chris39
I had this happen to me as well when I bought a 6900xt on sale. Apparently it is the newest driver causing the issues. The flickering went away when I went back to an older driver. I don't remember the driver number off hand I sent that video card back, I wasn't happy with the performance for the cost and went with Nvidia this time 3080. Haven't had any problems with it or even AMD when I rolled back to older driver.

Ship by 07/08 ? Does that mean my headset will arrive in July no matter what?

Asked by: Johnneh
No, mine just arrived yesterday, was expected from July 13 - July 20. The only downside is that I learned that it's still incompatible with my GPU which is a RTX3090ti, even when it says it is compatible with RTX3000 series....

Are you saying that this headset will not work with NVIDIA GeForce RTX3060 12GB GDDRS? I didn't see it listed in your last response.

Asked by: flyer j
HP Team Grant's response is flat out wrong, they just haven't verified it, but it's very likely that it will work on the desktop version of the RTX 3060. Laptop RTX 3060 systems will depend on the port configuration.

Full resolution is 2160x2160 What's the actual half resolution?

Asked by: Jveiras
TLDR: [100% Render Resolution of 3164x3100 Per Eye = Display Resolution of 2160x2160 Per Eye 50% Render Resolution is 2236x2192 Per Eye = Display Resolution of ~1527x1527 Per Eye (What you asked for is 50% Display Resolution) Keep in mind your system will render more pixels than the amount projected onto the display, so when considering performance you should look at the Render Resolution and if you're considering the clarity of what you will view, you should look at Display Resolution.] Due to distortions in the lenses, your system will render applications at a higher resolution than the display resolution and then distort it on the displays, so that the lenses 'redistort' the view of the displays to make it look normal. Think of it as taking a picture with a fisheye lens and then correcting the fisheye effect. For clarity: 'Render Resolution' = the amount of pixels your system processes 'Display Resolution' = the amount of pixels the display projects Looking at my SteamVR settings these are the results I got: 100% Render Resolution = 3164x3100 Per Eye 50% Render Resolution = 2236x2192 Per Eye 100% Render Resolution of 3164x3100 Per Eye = Display Resolution of 2160x2160 Per Eye 50% Render Resolution is 2236x2192 Per Eye = Display Resolution of ~1527x1527 Per Eye Keep in mind your system will render more pixels than the amount projected onto the display, so when considering performance you should look at the Render Resolution and if you're considering the clarity of what you will view, you should look at Display Resolution.

is there any tracking comparison videos between the old and the new version of this headset, because this looks like its going to be an upgrade to my rift s if its better.

Asked by: Toca
I do not know if there is or not, but I can confirm that the new revision is awful with tracking and can hardly properly register a controller sitting still right in front of it when initially trying to start anything. To quote a fellow reviewer: “I am going to go back to my ancient Rift CV1 as that is a wholly better experience than this e-waste.” It was the same story with my but with the Quest 2.

Hi I got my headset in December 2021 and I registered the product to my account in June of 2022 but the warranty status was showing that I only had 6 months left instead of the 3 years

Asked by: Sonicxshadow
They will not solve this for you, it does not have 3 year warranty, only a year. When contacting support about warranty: "Sorry but its only 1 year and website has an error." HP support is clown show.
