The HP Reverb G2 has better optics than the Index, with the same audio as the Index. The main difference is the tracking and controllers. The inside-out tracking solution of the Reverb is known to be significantly inferior compared to the outside-in tracking of the index, even a little inferior to the Quest 2. And the controllers for the Index are considered to be better than every other controller in the market, with the Reverb controllers still using the original WMR controllers which, while serviceable, are considered to be the more inferior controller.
The Index VR kit is $1000 dollars for a reason. It has the most accurate tracking, the best known audio solution, and the best controllers in the market. But there are reasons to consider the Reverb G2. It has a higher resolution than the Index, the same audio solution, and the tracking, while not ideal, requires less setup.
