The Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 Repairability Score: 9 out of 10 (10 is best)
Given that the Rift is still a beta product, this is still a preliminary score—but things are looking good, and we hope the consumer version is just as repairable.
Standard Phillips #0 screws are used in both the headset and positional tracker, making it a cinch to open them.
Cable management is much improved from the original development kit, and the elimination of the control box makes for a simpler, more streamlined device.
The use of a common smartphone display means that replacement parts are readily available!
Getting into the positional tracker without a repair guide is a bit of a doozy. Prying around the edge won't help you here, but a thin tool in the front will.
