Yeah it's windows mixed VR. image is supposed to be good, IPD up to 68 I think. tracking is "decent" not a bad first headset to try things out
And a pretty good deal where it's sitting right now price-wise since even used ones seem to cost more. I think it's got one more drop in it too. If it breaks $200, it's an all-out steal.

True that. Only downside is there are 2 revision of the G2 Reverb. Newer one offering improvements and changes in the sensor placement along other factors. They seem to have the same model number too...Only way to tell is by looking inside at the accessories and the unit itself to tell....Unfortunate, cause I would definitely pick one up for 200 it I could...If it was a V2 that is.

I bet you can call CDW and get someone to get the HP part number off of the box--there should be two different HP part numbers for the 2x revisions as that's what they do on their motherboards when they do the same thing (keeping the model number the same). I'd just be patient and stay on hold while someone in the warehouse runs down there and checks the box. (y) Just think of it as getting paid to be on hold since a v2 at a sweet price would be a steal. :)

I've been contemplating a VR headset for awhile. Couldn't justify the $600-$1000 price tags for an occasional use device.

Looking a the item number this may be a V2. I ordered one. Even with tax and air shipping it's cheaper than the Meta Quest 2. And no Facebook foolishness.
Please let us know how it works out!

So, CDW did a great job sending the unit - without controllers. That little discrepancy was not listed anywhere on the site or purchase info. The headset was a return from a veterinary school in CO. I returned the kit, they apparently are unable to replace it, and I'm waiting on a refund.

Yes, they sent me a label.

No issues with CDW's service, so far.

Bummer...yeah that was a failure on their part for sure and since it's a single item sku, you'll be looking at a refund. But would have great if the deal went through, so don't be afraid to try for something else later. (y)

As usual, looking for something else and found a decent deal. (y)

I've gotten something similar to this when I needed a high speed usb charger (except mine was made by HP)--65w Asus usb-c power adapter for $30 that's usually more than this from legit sellers, and right now is around the same price on ebay from questionable sources. I expect this to drop at least another $10 like my HP did to $20 and maybe even get down to $10, which would be an outright steal for a quality high-speed usb-c charger that is universal voltage and will last years. They have 8 in stock including a few that are at $50 so you can watch the cheaper ones to find out what the bottom price is to nab these at:

Enjoy! (y) Remember to call in your order and confirm stock allocation on the exact cdw part number!
