Mixed Reality Headsets, HP Reverb Oculus S, Odyssey+ discussion

So, a while back about a year ago I tried one of those Microsoft mixed reality headsets( either HP or Acer or Lenovo - they are all the same with the same internals) and didn't like it due to narrow FOV and then even narrower sweet spot which was about 45degrees.
I never tried Oculus and now with Oculus S coming out I am contemplating on trying to give it a try again perhaps or maybe get Odyssey+. Those HP, ACR and Lenovo have about 95FOV. Oculus and Odyssey+ have 110 though Odyssey has 631ppi screen vs 538 in Oculus S which is quite big and meaning no easily visible pixels.

Any thoughts? my main use would be movies+some mild fps gaming. I friend of mine picked up Odyssey+ for $500 some months ago,but I haven't seen it anywhere for less than $640.

HP Reverb should be out in about 2 weeks. 2160 x 2160 per eye. Looking forward to some real reviews as there are none so far other than previews. It was suppose to be released on May 6th but it didn't happen for some reason.
