Please give the Rift S some love!
I have been fighting issues with my Rift S for a while now and am waiting for my RMA to return in the mail. I have had problems that include robot mic, speakers popping, random loss of tracking, and, most annoyingly, constant headset crashing remedied only be restarting my PC.
Just so that you know: All of these issues spawned from and Oculus Software update that mainly had changes only for Oculus Quest Link. Please pass this on to your developers and let them know that they need to get these issues resolved, even if it is just in the Public Test Channel for now. The Rift S has been so left out, because all your effort is going towards the Quest and Link. Some facts:
- All of the latest software updates have been improving the Quest Link functionality
- Issues that were created by a software update have not been resolved
- The Rift S doesn't have hand tracking yet
- Many users have reported these problems
I know that you can fix this. The Rift S is the best PC headset short of the Valve Index, and even so, the Index doesn't have fancy inside-out tracking. Unfortunately, issues in the software, and possible hardware and build quality, plague it and have really ruined the experience.
I hope that my new Rift S holds up longer (I have only had the one I just RMA'd since December 2019), and if not, I will be considering jumping ship to another platform. Don't make me do that, because I love the best parts of the Rift S.
