    I bought mine from System Active (UK)
    https://systemactive.co.uk/online/hp-reverb-g2/

    I had to wait several months though. I don’t know what the situation is now but I’m guessing you’ll have to wait a week or two

    Hi Steve, great to hear - I think you answer what I am looking to do too. sounds like the G2 is the best option - looks like this was a recent post too. I am using Plane and helicopters so wondering if you are MS202 only our tried G2 with Xplane too ? cheers, Dan

    However... since the big update last week I have flown in VR only. I’ve used an Oculus Rift CV1 previously (although not with MSFS) and I also own a Quest. My main headset though is my new Reverb G2 - I seriously recommend it.
    I too wear glasses (all the time). For the Rift I had to buy a separate pair of glasses, smaller than my usual ones, but for the G2 my regular glasses fit just fine.
    As for the headset.. it’s comfortable (more so than the two Oculus ones) & the display is much clearer than I’ve had previously.
    Flying MSFS with the G2... wow! When I first tried it, there were stutters and the frame rates dropped dramatically... but this cleared after a minute or two. I realised that it was a good idea to sit on the tarmac for a couple of minutes before starting up.
    I have since discovered that if I launch VR mode while still in the menu screen or even while the flight is loading.. then it’s smooth from the start.
    The G2 was around £500 up until July 31st. I thought it was expensive so resisted buying.. until August 2nd.. it then cost me about £639! I regret not buying two days earlier LOL
    Still, I’m glad I got it and I’m sure you won’t regret it if you do. The feeling of actually being sat in an aircraft is incredible. You just don’t get that with 2d screens.
    I know some say that you can’t read the gauges clearly in VR.. well they can’t use this argument anymore, because you can! Certainly in the G2 anyway.
    Yesterday, I even sat in the back of TBM while the copilot flew the plane. So realistic! (except that I couldn’t actually see him flying it)
    One major issue though is that MSFS is even more addictive! I was up until 1.20am last night flying around Courchevel. Prior to that it was the mountains of North Wales. Absolutely stunning!

    Regards
    Steve

    Well although I have Windows Mixed Reality OpenXR runtime installed when I select VR in fs2020 or hit Ctrl+Tab it says failed it can't detect OpenXR, but for everything else it's ok. It certainly is a big step up for visuals over the Quest 2.... Although I read yesterday Quest 2 is getting a refresh rate upgrade around the 140 mark........ In short I'm stuck at the moment with the OpenXR problem....

    UPDATE I updated MS Store from within the head set, there were to my surprise quite a lot... AND A 1.3GIB FOR msfs2020.... Fired it all back up and it connected to the sim then CTD ha..... I'm off for tea will have another try later........

    Well a few weeks in and as far as MSFS is concerned G2 blows Gquest 2 out of the water. First thing to do with both these headsets is change the stock strap for a better one, this makes one hell of a difference... It provides more comfort and you're able to keep that sweet spot in place instead or always having to adjust the headset as the sweet spot slips away with movement... .... The Quest 2 is a good headset it really is for the price, but it's not going to make easy reading the dials clearly on the panel, you're going to have to lean in to read them. This I found lets the headset down when in MSFS... In games like Half-Life: Alyx VR you will love the Quest 2 overall the graphics are good enough to feel the full immersion into the game... I played it quite a lot on Quest 2 it's advantage is playing the game over wifi and no cable to trip over with of strangle yourself..... But G2 on the game and you get to see the very fine details in the graphics but you're fighting a cable for most part....... However in MSFS the G2 shines! you can sit back in your seat and scan the panel and read the dials effortless. I would would say the G2 is a big leap forward for MSFS over the Quest 2 you have finer graphics and this may not sound like a big deal at first but the G" is a lot lighter which makes it feel more comfortable giving you longer game play.... I may be correct on this, the G2 don't stream over wifi you have to use the cable... I have my cable coming out of the computer up and over the wardrobe and down to my headset and that works rather well when seated... and that's fine as your seated when flying, well most of ur are lol

    If you only want VR for MSFS definitely get the G2, If you want the headset to play other VR content that involves moving around and fighting then Quest 2 wins over the G2 because of the ability to use wifi eliminating the cable..


    I bought the Quest 2 because I could not get my hands on the G2.... I'm very pleased with the quest2 and use it for gaming and watching movies and tend to use the G" xclusively for flying... you know If i work out how much I've spent on MSFS over the months I could have paid for flying lessons in the real world ha.......


    Aptosflier the only hiccup I found with the G2 is NO WIFI!

    for thoses that ware glasses getting the VR Lenses £60 with postage and about a three week turn around from order to using them... The lens inserts make huge improvement over using glasses!!! Its a serious upgrade in its own right!!!!

    I'm still considering a G2 purchase in the future some time, but will say that the Quest 2 seems considerably improved. Maybe their last update accomplished this. I'm kind of in an "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mode for now, since I love flying in VR with the Quest. The incentive to drop US$600 on a G2 just isn't that high.

    The dials are still not perfect, that's true, but I know most of the dials without reading their letters. A single mouse click zooms them in.

    I don't keep up on the VR industry, but my other fear is dropping $600 on a G2 and then suddenly, the following week, another company will come out with a brand new frontrunner that blows both the G2 and the Quest 2 away. Either way, hope that day actually does come soon!
