Asatek vs Simucube 2

Beano von Rensburg gives his thought in the forums whether the Asatek DD is comparable to the Simucube 2


Gavin Auld noted in the forums that, “By default all on screen info is placed around the edge of the screen. Racing in VR means it can’t be seen without breaking your neck. This is solved by pressing Alt-K and dragging the boxes to a location that best suits the POV of your headset. The problem is, some things can only be seen when a notication is on screen. Certain pop ups, like lap splits are only there for a few seconds.”
