HP Reverb G2 vs Sony PlayStation VR

When you compare the Sony PlayStation VR to the HP Reverb G2 you can see which VR Headset is better. Let's take a look of the comparison, and see which model of VR Headset out ontop.

What VR Headset is better?

I recently had the chance to test out both Sony’s PlayStation VR and HP’s Reverb G2, two of the top virtual reality headsets on the market today.

First, let's talk about Sony PlayStation VR. The PSVR headset has a 100° field of view, which is pretty average for its class. The resolution is decent at 1920 x 1080 pixels, which should be good enough for most users. It also offers 360 tracking and runs at 120Hz refresh rate—both impressive specs that make it one of the best performing PC-powered VR headsets out there.

Now let's compare this to HP Reverb G2: This headset has a 114° field of view, which is much wider than that offered by its competitor. Additionally, the resolution stands at 2160 x 2160 pixels, giving you much crisper visuals than other headsets on the market can offer. To use it you'll need either an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor or an Intel Xeon E3-1240 v5 (or equivalent). It's also recommended to have either Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards in order to run it smoothly—which could be considered a con for those who don't have powerful hardware installed in their PCs already. That said, HP does offer options for professional workstations with either Nvidia Quadro P5200 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 graphics cards as well as compatible operating systems like Microsoft Windows if you do go down that route—so no matter your setup there is something here for everyone. With 360 tracking and 90 Hz refresh rate support included too, it's clear that HP Reverb G2 was made with intense gaming sessions in mind over extended periods of time without compromising quality too much in terms of performance metrics such as latency and response times.

Having used both these products now I must say I really enjoyed using HP Reverb G2 more than Sony PlayStation VR due to its superior specs such as higher resolution display and wider field of view along with many more features suited specifically towards professional users who are looking to game intensely over long periods of time without compromise in performance metrics such as latency and response times whilst still getting crisp visuals from all angles thanks to their immersive 114 degree FOV and high quality image details from every angle with their 2160 x 2160 px resolution display panel - although some may find it difficult due to needing higher end hardware like Nvidia RTX graphics cards just in order to get started so bear that in mind before investing too heavily into this product! On the flip side though PSVR does provide very solid performance metrics coupled with decent visuals even though not quite up par compared to what we see on HPRG2 but then again considering its price point makes up for it by offering great value when you consider what else you get from similar products within same range - ultimately making them good choices depending on your individual needs/budget/preferences!
