HP Reverb G2 Review


High resolution for the price ; Comfortable headset and controllers ; Works reliably with SteamVR

Camera-based tracking has occasional hiccups ; Much more expensive than the Oculus Quest 2, even when factoring the optional cable for PC tethering ; Windows Mixed Reality is almost completely dead as a VR platform

The redesigned HP Reverb G2 VR headset offers a more comfortable fit and reliable experience than its predecessor, while maintaining the same sharp picture and reasonable price. It lacks some of the competition's more compelling benefits, though.

Review: The refreshed HP Reverb G2 gets better without costing more


HP's Reverb G2 is VR/WMR headset that focuses heavily on the visual experience. It recently received a refresh, and we got our hands on the new model to see what it's all about.

Spectacular visual experience ; Robust audio system ; Full compatibility with SteamVR and its libraries ; Improved FOV with new face gasket removable riser (G2-V2) ; Seemingly improved controller tracking (G2-V2)

No touch-capacitive sensors on controllers ; Tracking could still be better

Bottom line: The refreshed HP Reverb G2 doesn't likely warrant a re-buy over the first Reverb G2, but the changes made are welcome for anyone who's looking to break into VR and WMR. It's a good sign for all fans of VR that HP is continuing to innovate...

Great visuals, easy to set up, fluid tracking

Incompatible with glasses, a strong PC needed

The HP Reverb G2 is a high-performing VR headset that easily warrants praise. The level of immersion this headset provides is genuinely amazing, and the tracking is very impressive. Most unique about this model, though, is its implementation of Windows...

HP Reverb G2 VR headset review: Resolution revelation


The upgraded HP VR headset was built with support from Microsoft and Valve. Does that make it the ultimate way to enter virtual reality?

Comfortable fit ; Easy setup ; Fantastic inside-out tracking ; Interesting mixed-reality experience

Velcro head strap system is a bit old hat ; Controllers can be faffy ; It's not wireless

This headset is a great virtual reality option, made convenient by the Windows Mixed Reality elements, easy controls, a comfortable fit, and some of the best visuals on offer too. However, the included controllers aren't our favourite and, yes, we wish...

HP Reverb G2 review


Offering high resolution at a reasonable price, the Reverb G2 suffers from its own problems as well as from relying on Windows Mixed Reality.

Fantastic resolution ; Good sound ; No external sensors required

Tiny sweet spot ; Issues with AMD-based PCs

The HP Reverb G2 is a good VR headset, but can be problematic depending on your PC and your play space.

HP Reverb G2 Review: Amazing Clarity, Disappointing Tracking


Lightweight ; Great audio ; Antimicrobial materials ; Incredible display resolution

Tracking is a huge letdown ; Narrow field of view ; Some components feel cheap

The HP Reverb G2 is a very comfortable headset with fantastic audio and fantastic display clarity. The field of view is narrower than we'd like, but not a deal-breaker. The real tragedy is tracking. Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality Tracking was the...
