So, firstly, I know there are other posts comparing these two headsets, but I also have seen that Quest 2 has had updates this year and the link etc has improved. So I wanted to share my buying dilema and see what people think…
I am from the UK and have a Desktop PC that is new, 3090, 12900k 64gb DDR5 Ram.
I am currently in the USA and have my Dell XPS Laptop with a 3060 and have been using it for FS a little. A friend leant me their Quest 2 to try out, and while It works, the smoothness is not brilliant and it is a bit blurry on the instruments and screens.
I know I cant judge it by this performance as the laptop is ok, but I assume not enough to get a good performance from it. I am just using the link over the air option.
So, in the US right now the G2 is $299 which is a great price.
I like the freedom of the quest but the G2 seems to get the nod in terms of quality. That being said, the larger sweet spot and wider FOV is better in the Quest?
So, how much better is the G2 in their current states? Should I be expecting to read the screens and dials clearly if I get the Quest?
Lastly, I already have 4 monitors running on my PC at home. I have a USBC spare; if I get the G2 can I use a USBC to Display port adapter to run it?
Oh, and lastly, how can I know if I am getting the Reverb G2 V2? Buying new from HP would it be safe to assume it is that version?
All thoughts and recommendations very welcomed. I have been watching lots of videos and reading as much as I can, but I like to ask directly based on my situation.
