The collaboration between HP and Valve is particularly evident in the design of the HP Reverb G2: the VR glasses offer a similar head mount, an almost identical face cushion and the main speakers, the Index, which instead hang elegantly in front of the ear against it to press.

This makes the VR glasses much more comfortable than their predecessor model, but makes compromises in some areas that will please the simulation target group, but prevent the VR headset from being overthrown as the most comfortable VR glasses for me.

The VR glasses from this HP promise to combine the sharp image of the previous model with the comfort and sound of the Valve Index.

The high resolution of this Virtual Reality device is the best feature of the VR glasses. It’s 2,160 by 2,160 pixels per eye and the refresh rate is 90 Hz.

Improved lenses co-developed with Valve, software enhancements from Microsoft, and new display technology result in a clear, sharp image that is nearly free of flashes of light (god rays), banding (ghosting), or color errors (chromatic). deviation).

The pixel structure of the display (screen door effect) can no longer be seen, everything looks as if it is made in one piece. SteamVR defaults the resolution of the VR device to 3,184 by 3,096 pixels per eye.

This is standard and is done with every VR goggle to counteract the distortion effects of the lenses. The HP Reverb G2 is based on Windows Mixed Reality, so the device and the software that runs in the background are natively built into Windows 10.

Once the VR goggles are plugged in, the Windows Mixed Reality portal opens and leads a guide the user by adjusting the VR glasses.

VR glasses and the play area. In the Windows 10 system settings, there are settings for VR mode. The Windows Mixed Reality Portal offers various rooms that can be arranged according to your own wishes and a separate shop for VR games.

The portal always runs in the background: functions such as quick access to the desktop can be launched by pressing the Windows button on the controller.

However, anyone bridging the WMR to SteamVR will rarely, if ever, use these options. Using the HP Reverb G2 with Steam is simple: launch Steam, install the Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR app, launch SteamVR and you’re done.
