Rift vs Odyssey

Recommended Posts

After reading the reviews about the odyssey I decided to give it a try.  I was surprised that despite the higher resolution of the odyssey, the rift actually seemed to provide better instrument readability, maybe it has better lenses.  I also thought the rift just fit better and liked the fact that I can still use the rift in a dark room.  However one thing that stood out was the quality of the display seemed light years ahead of the rift.  The rift always gave me very poor rendering at night, too bright, banding in the sky, bright clouds, it looked like an only 16 bit video game from the 90's.  Is there something wrong with my rift, or does the odyssey just have that much better of a display?  Using the odyssey black was black and it could display a much wider range of dark shades, really felt great for night flying.

The odyssey has a better display I had no real problems withe odyssey, sometimes tracking can be a pain in the butt but very little it does suck you have to have the lights on for the camera.
