VR Test OSVR HDK2

Yesterday, 09:58 PM

Purchased the Razer OSVR HDK2 $375

It arrived in the mail today and I must say it crushed my hopes and dreams of VR gaming quite spectacularly.

 

Dual Display 2160x1200 (1080 X 1200 per eye) low persistence OLED silver screen with 441 PPI running at 90 fps.
IQE (Image Quality Enhancement) technology for reduced screendoor effect. <Fails from what I have read this is just a blur filter...

 

(Just sent this off to Razer Support)

Display is very pixilated it's like looking through fly wire or at a 27" monitor running 640x480
Tried to play hl2 and l4d2 but its too blurry to read anything and the texture quality is nonexistent

Doesn't fit my face the eye pieces are too narrow they hit my nose so that the zoom slides itself back in from the pressure of resting against my nose putting it back out of focus

My eye lashes rub the lenses making them foggy

Is there any workarounds for these problems?

On the up side i didn't feel any sicker after playing l4d2 with it on than I did before I started which seems to be the main complaint about vr

If the quality was bearable it would be a rather immersive experience so maybe one day vr will be worth a look but at this stage they have a long way to go as my eyes have gotten use to 4k and don't want to go back to vhs

 

Why VR Image is Bad? Screen Door Effect Coping With PenTile Hybrid Technology

Wonder if I can get my money back

 

From what i can find the image quality problems are not limited to the Razer VR and while some may be a little better none are acceptable

reviews are out and as expected it edges out titan x while costing much less at $699us rrp same as the 1080 founders edition, $100 more than the gtx 1080 non reference at launch and $200 more than it is now

au prices are a bit of a rip off at $1200


Win 10 wont shutdown or sleep

18 February 2017 - 07:22 AM

OK so the pc waking itself back up is one thing but when it just returns to the sign in screen and turns off the monitor when told to sleep or shutdown that's a new one for me

 

After some googling i found a workaround to get shutdown working by disabling faster startup in power options but i still want standby back

 

The only other thing i found that may help is updating drives and unplugging peripherals so i have done that but still no luck

 

Also tried install avast\mbam but they didn't find anything

 

Anyone else come across this or have any ideas? other than reinstalling windows 10 again
