    A nice novelty item. Could benefit from straps.

    The cost of this item makes it great idea for an entry-level virtual reality accessory. This is an item that I could introduce to someone who was wanting to experience virtual reality for the first time, however the lack of straps to attach the device to the user's head ruins the experience because it keeps the user from being fully immersed in the virtual reality experience. I won't speak for the effects of virtual reality per se as it would be unfair to place any focus on that department; after all, this is a product review, and as such this review should focus on the product. To summarize this is a great product for a beginner in virtual reality, but the lack of straps leave much to be desired. In addition, there just isn't a lot of software out there in the virtual reality category unless one were to invest in the higher-end virtual reality premium device. I would only recommend this to a friend who wanted to try out virtual reality for the first time. Let me make that clear.

    Great way to see VR at Affordable Price

    We were very curious what VR looked like, this viewer was a very affordable way to check it out. With 20 friends and family for the Holidays everyone, young and old, had a great time learning what this new technology had to offer at a basic level. If you're just curious or want to see if you like it before purchasing an upgraded version, this is the way to go! It was very simple to use, held up nicely with all the passing around (we're still using it) and everyone had a lot of fun. For the young and old we started them in a swivel chair so they could get the full 360 experience without endangering anyone or the furniture. We passed it around for hours most taking multiple turns. For a test set or the occasional user, it's HIGHLY Recommended. Now that you've seen what it has to offer, you'll understand out what options you want to see in your upgraded version.

    I bought this due to always wanting to try out virtual reality but not wanting to drop so much money on an expensive set. I do not regret my purchase at all, watching YouTube videos along with messing around with the Google Cardboard app really make this product worth it. The construction is primarily cardboard with foam to make wearing it comfortable and while its not much, its actually quite comfortable. I had so much fun using it that I ended up buying 4 more of these for my parents and siblings after my experience. It is a great start to Virtual Reality and it won't break the bank.

    This was an impulse buy. I saw it on sale for about $3 so I said to myself “eh why not?” I’m not very tech savvy so after about an hour figuring this out it was totally worth it. The virtual reality was hilarious to me. At one point while still learning an animal in the tutorial startled me. I’ve never experienced the VR world and this was a great way to start. I gave it a 4 only because it can get a bit tiresome having to hold it with both hands the whole time, but that’s what the expensive ones are for I guess. Anyway if you want to just try the VR world then this is a great start for more than half off the Big Brand prices.

    I ordered two of them for my nephews. First, the ones I received were damaged. I appreciate how Best Buy handled the situation and sent me replacement. However, it took one week to get the replacements. Meanwhile, I had to order VRs from Amazon for my nephews as I promised them VRs in Thanksgiving weekend. Also, Best Buy doesn't have decent selection of affordable VRs! After getting VRs for my nephews, I thought I can use these VRs and none of them fit my iPhone 6 Plus. Because of this, the screen is cutting off about half inches. Anyways, for $4.99 what else I can expect? Gonna return them asap!

    As good as google carboard

    If you run across this in the best buy store and are wondering if it is as good as google cardboard or if it is a cheap knockoff, let me just say that it is just as good as google cardboard and works the exact same way. In fact, with these, you can download the cardboard app and use it just like google cardboard. As far as virtual reality, it is actually a lot of fun to play with. I have really enjoyed it thus far. The only actual complaint that I have about it is that it doesn't have any sort of heard strap, so you will have to hold it up yourself. Apparently, this is a part of google's design model. It's not a huge drawback, but it is something to consider.

    Perfect for VR on a budget!

    Glad I purchased this and not a huge headset that costed up to 3-5x the price. The experience is clearly going to be uniform across the board with exception to comfort. This item is perfect for budget VR viewing, if you want to get a feel for what's out there without shelling out a lot of cash. Most of the VR content is a little dizzying as is, so the fact this doesn't have a strap and isn't comfortable after say 10 minutes of use is fine, because your eyes strain a little after a while depending on how much you turn your head. Good purchase for young ones or simply someone looking to dabble in VR without the large price tag.

    Picked this up in a Deal of the Day for $2.99 and it's been definitely worth the price of admission. I've been having a blast with the silly thing! Compatible with Google's Carboard App (syncs right up with the QR code printed on it) and you're good to go. Lots of great 360° videos available in YouTube for it, as well (be sure to hit the viewer icon in the lower right corner!). I used some spare elastic and Velcro and rigged up straps for it. A great bit of inexpensive VR fun.
