    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, JRK
    I also received my Index, and its great :)

    Comfort:
    For me, the comfort is way better than OG Vive, and I haven't found out if its comfort, image quality or a mix of both that is the reason that I can play much longer without removing the headset.
    Removing the headset without loosening the strap is really nice.

    Image:
    The image quality is much better, and the screen door effect is barely noticeable, somehow it looks like I always wanted it to be. Only downside is the glare. Most noticeable on black loading screens with white text; it feels like someone holding a flash light under your eyes, shining vertically on your iris. Not pleasant, but rarely noticed in game.
    The sweet spot is not much bigger than the OG Vive, but the image is clearer over the whole FOV, which seems a lot bigger, and I really notice it when sim racing, it gives a much better sense of speed.
    Have only played a little with the FPS setting and can't really notice the difference, but I've seen a lot of reviews that emphasises it.

    Sound:
    Really good, makes my 5.1 Surround on the sim collecting dust. :)

    All in all: very satisfied :)
