I sent mine back two weeks ago because of flashing in the right display. HP won't even exchange them for another. they told me they had no additional stock and just refunded my money.

It seems like not all headsets have the issue, I have watch countless Youtube reviews which do not address this issue. 

It may be similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro phone screen "green tint" issue in that it was the LG screen and not the BOE screen that were both used in the phone. 

I wonder how easy it is to detect the screen models with those having this issue and compare with those not having the issue.

I'll drop a link below to what seems to be known in the knowledge base of HP themselves, not relating to the screens but rather, a simplistic solution but nevertheless, they seem to have this issue on their radar:

The HP reverb seems very interesting for simming because of the insane resolution. But it IS a LCD. How do you rate the black levels and color depth? What about a moonless night flight with the reverb? Do you have any of the OLED HMD's to compare? Does the reverb give a greyish screen during nights?

The one thing you notice with the LCD's is that at night there is a grey haze. It happens in both P3D and XP11. I've never used an OLED HMD so I don't have anything to compare it to.

The problem, which is one that these new fast-switch lcd panels do address, is that while you do get much better black levels with an oled display like in the Odyssey+, you also end up with an unpleasant (depending on your tolerance) smearing effect when turning your head quickly in dark situations. There are quite a few articles/threads/videos regarding the issue.

In the end, it may simply be one of those grass-is-always-greener, situations.

I've been following the various Reddit topics related to VR. Every one of them has issues that people complain about. Apparently HP has acknowledged that there is a hardware problem with the Reverb. They are halting shipment of new units until they can replace the cord. This is what was causing the flashing in the right display. Those won't be available until September. I've reserved an Index but I won't see that until probably October. Maybe by then this stuff will have sorted itself out. I'm pretty happy with the Rift S.
