lol yall all complaining bout updates and crap like that, yet yall forget to remember this damn pandemic might have a issue on them getting this shit done, like supposedly they have less ppl working O.o

10 months in and tracking still not sorted. Virus or no virus this is bad considering the premium price put on it.

Plus compounded that in a couple of months the original Cosmos will be superseded by the HP Reverb G2 which by current previews will cost less, have a better display and actually does what it says on the tin. RIP HTC Cosmos.

Ok, so you are comparing a released product against previews of an unreleased product? You cannot compare the two - that is just silly!!

I love the Cosmos - apart from the tracking. It's definitely better now - I find it acceptable. I don't expect perfection but it works for 95% of the time. I also have wireless, and couldn't move back to wired headsets, so am staying with Vive for the time being.

Hopefully the Reverb G2 will be good as the Windows Mixed Reality platform has really struggled.

Yes, agreed, the Reverb G2 is not released yet. But the previews are not being set in the same circumstances as the Cosmos and it's looking good thus far. If I remember the Cosmos previewers had to go to HTC specified locations with set lighting and playing set games. It was released and all hell broke loose because of the real world environment wasn't anything like their preview environment. HTC knew it was a mess at that time, it was obvious.

And also agreed that the Cosmos would be a perfectly good headset without the tracking issue(s.). But my biggest problem is that the tracking is so sensitive to your environmental conditions - you can be fine 95% of the time but another person can barely getting it working because their environment is different. HTC then patch it and it becomes better for one person but worse for another (just look at the range of comments on here). It's a lose lose situation for them.

Not picking a fight on this one and I do take your point about the wireless, I just think this headset was a con from the start for so many buyers - there was nothing initially to say you had to have any kind of environment to use the thing satisfactorily. They then conned the previewers and (to crown this achievement) the general public. And it gave pre-orders a bad name.

P.S. If the Reverb G2 does turn out to be a fail, I'll come on here and eat humble pie.
