I recently had the opportunity to test out two of the most popular virtual reality headsets, the HP Reverb Professional Edition and the Iristick G2. Having used both products side by side, I was able to compare them thoroughly and am now prepared to share my thoughts on which one is better suited for particular types of users.
Beginning with the HP Reverb Professional Edition, this PC VR headset has a field of view that is 114 degrees with a resolution of 2160 x 2160 pixels. This is an impressive specification for this type of headset and offers good image quality for those looking for great visuals. It also offers room-scale tracking and 360 tracking along with a refresh rate of 90 Hz making it ideal for more intensive gaming experiences. A downside however, is that it requires Microsoft Windows as its operating system meaning some users may not be able to take advantage of this headset's features due to not having access to this platform or hardware capable of running it smoothly.
The second headset I tested was the Iristick G2 Smartphone AR headgear which has a resolution 426x240 and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. While these specifications are certainly lower than what can be found in its competitor, they are still suitable for many applications such as viewing videos or surfing the web while wearing glasses free 3D displays. Additionally, since it uses your smartphone instead of needing an external power source or bulky PCs, it makes moving around much easier as you do not have to worry about disconnecting any cables from your computer every time you want to take a break from using your headset. On the other hand, having such low resolution can cause images and text appear somewhat fuzzy at times although this should depend on your phone's screen size too so bigger screens might offer some relief there.
Overall both headsets performed well during my tests but when considering value for money and ease-of-use then I believe that depending on what you need either one could be a viable option for different people’s needs; The HP Reverb Pro may suit gamers who require greater graphics capabilities whereas those who just want something lightweight with decent visuals would probably benefit more from an Iristick G2 device instead. Therefore in conclusion if you need something powerful then opt for the HP Reverb Pro whilst if portability matters more then go ahead and choose an iristick G2 instead - either way you will likely find yourself satisfied with whichever one you decide upon!
