And what is the verdict? I am on the edge on whether or not I should get it. I Use the Rift with P3D and run at SS 1.5. It is hard to tell how much of an upgrade it would be and what the performance would be like.

The difference varies by title, and it can be subtle. There are also ones settings to consider, as combinations of various SS and AA parameters can yield results ranging from blurry to pleasing.

I would say overall there is a notable improvement, and I'm not at all sorry for having pulled the trigger. My Rifts days are almost certainly numbered, but I will hold onto it for a bit while I continue experimenting with the odyssey.

The two faults I notice so far is sucky WMR controllers that cause me to use other methods, and the fact that the headset is fairly uncomfortable in a way that can cause you to limit your playtime unless you get it positioned just right.

The way it rests in your forehead looks cool and hi-tech from an engineering perspective, but comfort-wise....... Bleah.

Pluses are that when its clear, its can be borderline breathtaking, because the feeling is not of looking at pixels, but more like an oil painting. Here is a first impressions thread that might explain it better. https://forums.mudspike.com/t/our-samsung-odyssey-first-impressions-tips-and-tricks/7191/17

There is also the fact that it pretty seamlessly allows one to use both Oculus and Steam titles in a smooth way that simply works.

Oh, and you can definitely watch movies on it.
