    been posting on the forum since I got my QUEST2 few months ago.

    I have loved VR since Day1 I got the headset but so is now my daughter who is reluctant to share the Q2 to her Dad now.

    So the need for investing in a new one has grown in me, fast enough to make the call soon.

    I could go the Q2 2nd hand route again as they are dirt cheap here in Japan but I feel adventurous enough to look for another brand and PICO has caught my Simracer attention

    I see 2 possible headsets I could buy straight away, the Neo3 link and the Pico4

    To summarize high level comparative Pros from what I have read or watched so far

    Neo3 Link
    Clarity through DP (no artefact due to video decoding via USB)
    Reduced latency
    Easier to drive due to lower resolution

    Better resolution (but then more difficult to drive)
    wider FOV
    More comfortable( really??)
    Full RGB passthrough
    Better controllers (but who cares in Simracing!)

    any real-life user experience of both headsets here that could help me to go into one or the other direction?

    thanks a lot

    I have not tried any of those but low resolution is NOT a plus. At the same resolution, the higher resolution vr headset will look better from my experience, actually a lot better. You have much less screen door. It depends on the screens and lenses but as a rule of thumb

    I’d consider Quest 3. I heard it has much better edge to edge clarity.
