Great HMD and VR experience...almostPosted .
To put this review into perspective, I have used the Rift, Vive, AND PSvr. Out of them the Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) Head mounted display (HMD) has the best resolution out of all of them. All HMD has a sweetspot and within that sweetspot the clarity from the higher resolution is apparent, with that said, the sweetspot is SO SMALL if you have an IPD of 68mm or bigger. The Dell HMD IPD is 64mm which is WAY too small me (71mm IPD) BUT, your eyes and brain will get used to the small IPD but as I said that sweetspot will just be smaller so the very center will be very clear while going towards the outside its more blurry, thats just how fresnel lens works. I've noticed people complaining about tracking which gets me to thinking if they got it setup right. For ALL WMR headsets, because it uses inside-out tracking with its low resolution black and white cameras to see VISIBLE light, you need PROPER lighting conditions. You need good CONTRASTING (color and definition) floor and walls so that it can properly map out the area. The beauty of these inside-out tracking is that there is no need for external sensors, its literally plug and play. As for controller issues, they are connected via Bluetooth. Bluetooth is bandwidth limited and these controllers put out a lot of tracking data, you NEED to disable anything thats paired up to the computer bluetooth. Tested also has a good video on how the WMR tracking works https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JjiReFuQhs And theres also this video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uySFvKSb9Jk The controller is a bit odd coming from the Rift which I think is one of the BEST vr controller ever, its just so comfortable and fits your hand. I have played for a continuous hour on Rift and my hand never felt discomfort other than sweat. The WMR controller on the other hand just feels.....like a vive controller, its a big too big and that large ring doesnt make playing H3VR, PAVLOV, or Onward any easier as it sometimes interferes with you reloading or sliding the bolt back. The touchpad I think is too sensitive, but then again its smaller than the Vive so thats a given. The thumbsticks are good but not RIFT good, my right thumbstick actually has a defect I guess on it where if I thumb up it feels like its stuck on something but when I force it more you hear a click and it goes to to its maximum reach. I'd have to take it apart and look into that. As for battery life I am using rechargable nimh and so for after 20 or so hours theres still power left. I absolutely HATE built in batteries like the PS4 controllers, I rather have swappable batteries than having to let it sit and charge with me waiting to play. WHO WANTS TO WAIT!!!!! The straps are really really comfortable and I love the color white this has, the major downside and why its a 4 out of 5 is because of the strap mechanism and the audio. The strap mechanism is entirely plastic and it will wear out. Mines wouldn't lock anymore so I had to disassemble the back strap and bend the plastic tabs so it will lock again. If you play with the strap a lot it will cause wear and tear fast. The other downside is the audio, there is NO audio. You need a headset with a 3.5mm jack. Phone headsets are your best bet because of the inclusion of integrated mics. Its cumbersome to have the headset cable hanging along with the HMD cables. When setup, once you plug in a headset, ALL audio will divert to the headset unless you setup audio mirroring in the mixed reality software. As for supported software, theres basically two storefronts you should look at, Steamvr and Oculus Rift (Needs REVIVE software) If anybody has any questions, just ask.I would recommend this to a friend

Interesting..Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Played the demo in the store. Absolutely loved how it looked, how it felt on my head, the clarity of the visual. The headset just seemed so much better than the Oculus, I couldn't help but try it out. So I picked one up. Most people are aware of the "Screen-door effect" that plagues these devices (and some other stuff like godrays which are less bothersome) and that can be an instant turn off. These types of things still happen with the MR headsets, but it's not nearly as bad as say an Oculus. I did notice the lenses are more round and not oval which appears to cause a bit of blurring if you try and use your eyes to look left and right? We never really noticed when we were enjoying the Home area or playing games. I noticed it more trying out movies and just general browsing on websites. One of the few things that worried me about the device was the hinge. With all the head-swinging we were doing, it felt like the thing was going to snap. The next thing we noticed is that in the dark, the headset appeared to struggle a bit with tracking. It even caused one of the demos to stutter and lag. This was easily fixed by turning on a small lamp, it was a bit of an annoyance and could affect how you use the device. The Oculus definitely has MR beat when it comes to a secure fit and the motion tracking. To be fair, I don't think any of that is a deal breaker for the kind of clarity this thing offers and the potential it has with low end machines. However, as with all the good, there's a heap of bad too. We spent the better part of 1 1/2 hours trying to force Windows 10 in to the Fall Update 1709. To plug the thing in and realize one reboot wasn't enough. Not really the fault of the hardware, but that's a stupid limitation. After we successfully got the machine working "correctly" from the horror that was the update, the headset did work pretty smoothly and we encountered no further issues. The cord probably needs to be a tad longer and moved more away from the head (we tripped a bit). Once you get passed that and get it on your head. The Windows "Home" space is infinitely more fun than the Oculus. There's a bunch of stuff you can do with in it. But the overall "content" really consists of: Minecraft, the "Halo" demo, and Windows 10. Nothing else. After about 6hrs of use, there wasn't really much else to keep us going with it. It left us wanting more than it could deliver. We had assumed it launched with Steam VR support, but it did not and Vorpx does not have a mode for Mixed Reality yet. There's just nothing else out there right now you can do anything with. I'd really have liked to try Lucky's Tale on the thing. There's going to be a huge divide in content between the Oculus and the MR headsets with this kind of thing, sadly. Our opinion of the thing is that: If you're in it for clarity, you definitely want to give it a shot. However, right now, there's not a whole lot you can do with it. Unless you really like the MR Halo Demo and Minecraft. If you want to watch movies or use your desktop. You want this. I read some of the other support issues people were having and if they had read most of the manual I feel like that wouldn't have been an issue. Even the Oculus has its draw backs setting it up.

dell is the most comfortable mr headset|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
it is more comfortable than rift and other mr headset, for sure. and the connection is way easier. only down side is lack of contents. not much game can be played. but i think microsoft will try to make this product better in the future. so if wants to play good vr games now, get vive. if wants to have a comfortable mr headset for casual use, get dell.

Good but|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
I liked the headset, but it isn't going to have as many options as getting a Vive. The resolution on this device is pretty good. I wish it came with a better manual than the poor picture book that came with it. Over all, it's a good headset for the price. Something that would have been nice is if it had included a good case to put it in when it is not in use.

FIRST VR|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Hard to say as this is my first headset. Good quality, great visuals, but can get blurry on the edges. No built in sound so you have to wear headphones (annoying).

Too early to call it a competitor|Posted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Too early to call it a competitor to other VR headsets out there including the oculus. I dont understand what constitutes "premium" as advertised by dell but everything about the headset is run of the mill quality. Controller do feel premium though but the functionality wise not so much. I like the field of view and the cushion complements it well to make sure less light seeps through. I feel dell could have invested more into the overall "futuristic ready" product design if they feel like competing in this tight space.

Better than what you may have heard|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
As a PSVR owner for about 6 months, I was skeptical of Windows Mixed Reality, but after receiving a free Dell Visor with my PC purchase over the holidays, I was quickly won over by it's ease of use and quality of build. The Visor itself is similar to the PSVR in how it fits on your head, but from time to time it loosens during use and that can be annoying. The visuals are crisp and clear and the motion controllers are fantastic! The true winner is the ease of use, you can literally be in VR less than 5 minutes after taking this thing out of the box. I especially love the amount of things your can do with a PC VR over a PSVR (Although I still LOVE my PSVR). I use it with an I-7700 16 gb 1070 gtx so keep that mind. If your computer can't handle VR it wont matter what MR headset you get.

Great introduction to VRPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Once I got through the Windows update (Fall Creators) I found it works very well with my PC. I bought this to match with my Alienware 15 and the graphics very fluid and smooth. The cliff house interface is a very interesting UI, and takes a little getting used to, but very easy and fast to navigate once you get going. I have used my friends Oculus and the Dell Visor is much easier to setup with way less cables! Also I really like the white design and the fact I can take it and easily setup in other locations. I can set it up easily on my desk, then pack away when not using. I am looking forward to seeing more content in the Store as its early days I guess. Although its very cool you can run a virtual PC desktop. I also heard today that SteamVR is also coming so looking forward to giving that a try.

Q: QuestionDo we need to download a program for it to work with a Dell Computer not VR ready? If so, how much is the value of the program or application to have it ready for VR?
Asked by gamermom.
- A:Answer Check the Specs for Mixed Reality. A Intel Graphcis HD Pro can work with the Dell headset, however it will not be as "Sporty" as a GTX 10 series Graphic card. Also I discovered that Some GTX 980m cards are not compatible if they are running dual mode with a sub Intel Graphics HD Pro card.
