    The visuals/optics (not colors, particularly blacks) are better on the Rift S, if you are in the fixed IPD range, but the outside in controller tracking is better on the CV1 than the Rift S inside out tracking, and the CV1 audio is way better than the Rift S.

    Can I ask what your budget is, as there are also other potential options such as the Reverb (best resolution), Pimax (good resolution + widest consumer priced FOV, but fiddly) and Index (good resolution, improved FOV, outstanding audio and likely best overall refinement).

    In that case the Rift S is new, so gets you warranty, there will likely be a bunch of CV1s hit the second hand market as people go for the Rift S but keep in mind that the CV1 has a known issue with the audio ribbon breaking, plus being used may have other wear and tear issues. So longevity wise, if you are in the IPD range, then likely the bang for your bucks is likely the Rift S, you can also upgrade its audio with clip on PSVR headphones, which are similar to the original CV1.

    Thanks for the help! At the moment will keep with the triple screen then will see... What is your comparison between VR and the triple screen? :)

    Seriously consider the Odyssey Plus you will get one of those second hand it blows the rest out of the water to be honest for the price.

    Can anyone comment if the Rift S tracking is working well with motion rigs? I have seen people say its good, others say it doesn't work. I would put more faith in the opinions of this forum than the others, as users here actually have motion rigs. I have a Rift with my sensors mounted to the rig currently and it still loses tracking on occasion.
