I haven't gotten the chance to try out a vive. I'm curious about IQ between the two. I know that they use different style lenses and from what I hear the vive doesn't suffer from the godrays which I find by far the most annoying thing about my rift. White text on a black background looks horrendous. Its not bad or noticeable in game the vast majority of the time but killed Affected for me. I couldn't block it out. Reminded be of stereoscopic 3d crosstalk. I'm shocked that I don't see it bought up more. Everyone mentions resolution and sde which I don't find much of an issue. Lenses are by far the weak point on the rift imo. Just wondering what concessions were made on the vive lenses and how the two compare. Edit: Don't get me wrong. I love my rift. Just trying to get other people's input on the lenses.
